Places I'm likely to be found at Context


3pm-ish until 6 - Wandering around the hotel, possibly perching in the lobby or getting a snack. Registration and whatnot.

6pm - Opening Ceremonies.

7pm - Costume Contest.

9pm - Luke Ski Concert.

10pm - Might be willing to get up to hijinks. Might go to either Weird World of Science or Rocky Horror Phenomenon. Might go to bed and sleep like a tired person.


Breakfast whenever I'm ready.

10:30am - Probably A Day in the Life of an Editor, but possibly Universal Monsters.


1 to 4pm - Maintaining Emotional Realism in Speculative Fiction

4pm (or is it 4:30?) to 6 - Plotting the Novel: A Seminar with Tim Powers

I'm thinking more food at this point.

7pm - Either Different Types of Writing, or Interview with Tim Powers

8:30pm - The Dark Ascent: Contemporary Horror

10pm - The choices! Depending on my mood, it will be the Interview With Michael Arnzen, the Dance, or the Apex Room Party.


Breakfast, after I wake up with a luxurious lack of hurry. Ahhhhh...

10:30am - I Really Did It, But How?


1 to 3pm - Writing Great Openings

I might pop in for the end of How Do You Research Things That Don't Exist? Or not.

4pm - Closing Ceremonies

And a relaxing evening of hanging out solo, preparing for departure on Monday morning.

Yay fellow Contextian... Contextite... Contextile!
Hey, I wandered over from Charlie's journal. I'm going to Context too and I'll probably be at a few of the same seminars as you.

Friday I'm going to do the spec fiction poetry workshop and then maybe weird world o science. Saturday I was going to do the emotional realism, but humor in science fiction and fantasy is at the same time, so I'll probably end up there.

Plotting the novel and different types of writing, Contemporary Horror and I really did it are all on my list as well, I'm sure I'll run into you. I'm also hitting the writing great openings and writing cover letters and synopses Sunday.

I've been looking forward to this con for months and I've heard it's a good time, so I really don't see how I'm not going to enjoy the weekend. It's just hard to choose what to do with so much great stuff going on!

Hi! It's my mission to meet people this weekend, so I hope you'll come over and say hello if you see me. I've been looking forward to this con for a long time, too, ever since I heard that Tim Powers would be there. :)

I got the message about Tim Powers, that's too bad. I'm glad he's still coming, but I'm sure it's rough.

I won't be hard to find, I'll be the slightly geeky one with the notebook and pens.

Wait. Maybe I should wear a hat or something.

Oooh, I wish I could be at Context this year... I hope you'll put up a report! :)

Just to let you know, I've friended you under my reading journal calico_reaction, which is where I watch all the writing-related journals I'm interested in. :) Cheers!

Thanks for friending, and I've friended back because I love to read about books.

There will be Context reports here, of that you can be certain. :)

I was able to make it last year. Took a Gary Braunbeck workshop. It was a lot of fun. :)
