I was at the DFW Writers Conference this weekend, which went really well. It's different from an SF/F con in that it's all about development for writers, with classes and panels on various aspects of writing and publishing by writers, editors, and agents, plus attendees can sign up for short pitch sessions with agents and editors. I taught two classes, one on worldbuilding and one on dialog basics. About the only problem was in getting there and then getting away from it, because the highway leading to the convention center and hotel was a massive construction site from which all signage and exits had been carefully removed. It was about a four hour drive to get back, so I was pretty beat when I got home last night.

I haven't seen Doctor Who or Iron Man 3 yet, so I'll probably be scarce online to avoid spoilers until I can do both those things.

* If there are new friended people here from the conference, the Links to Information Sites for Beginning Writers section on my web site is here.

* There's a giveaway drawing of Emilie and the Hollow World at YA Books Central. You can enter to win all through May and it's open to international entries.
