Why I am Scared of 4th St. [Jun. 24th, 2010|06:18 pm]

Because I have been, as dd_b put it earlier in the week, sitting under the short story tree: that is, half-ripe short stories keep falling down around me, many of them hitting me on the head.

This is a very dangerous mindset in which to attend conventions.

It's not just because Mr. Carter Hall is a royal pain in the patoot, either. Not just because.

I often find conventions to be like that.

And I love it. :-)

Maybe you'll find a chapter-book tree to sit under at the con. Yeeeah.

ETA to advise, based on my own 4th street experience, that if some interesting people say to you "we have this group writing project..." they should be gently bound in cold iron and sent back to whence they came.

Oh, a chapter-book tree would be so much more helpful.

This. I got a couple of new story ideas at the con, and came up with another on the trip home.

"My god; it's full of stories!"

I deeply adore Mr. Carter Hall, but that's probably because I don't have to live with him.

If I wasn't fond of the big lug, all this would be a great deal less tolerable, I assure you.
