I’m in San Jose this week for the 76th annual World Science Fiction Convention. I’m not exhibiting, my schedule is light, and I’m Airbnb-ing instead of staying in the convention hotel(s), so it’s a little bit like I’m ghosting.
Here’s my schedule:
- 10:00 am, room 211c: Mental Health and Craft: Creating with Depression and Anxiety
- 3:00 pm, autographing area: Autographing! This is your best chance to have me deface your stuff.
- 12:00 pm, room 210b: Body Language—How to Improve Your Awareness and Use It in Fiction
Most of my time will likely be spent hiding somewhere and working on Schlock Mercenary installments. My GenCon recovery day stretched across half of last week, and these daily comics still don’t draw themselves. Oh, and although my schedule suggests I don’t need to be in San Jose until Saturday, I’m flying out today, Monday the 13th. I have two days of pre-Worldcon recording sessions with the Writing Excuses crew, so this week will be spent entirely out of reach of my usual drawing table…
