MidSouthCon: Review

MidSouthCon was an absolute blast. I had an amazing time and I can’t thank the people behind the con enough for inviting me nor can I thank the attendees and fellow guests for making me feel welcomed.

The panels were excellent. We had some great discussions on the broken people panel and the audience really got into it.

The diversity in spec fic panel was both eye-opening and bittersweet. I was reminded that progress is being made and yet….at the same time, we still have our work cut out for us.

The critiquing panel also had some excellent discussion and both the panelists and audience members had some memorable experienes about good and bad critique

What was really both awesome and humbling is that a number of people spoke to me after the panels. They thanked me and were really impressed with what I had to say. Apparently I’m good at that speaking thing.

Also signed some autographs and sold some books so win all around.
