VLOG: WisCon Style!

So, you might remember a couple weeks ago I went to WisCon. It was freaking awesome!

Not only were the panels I attended fun and, very often, funny. (Exhibit A: The Build a World panel built a world for a three act musical, titled: I Can Haz Musical, The Musical! Seriously, the panelists built a world taking place on a planet of LOLCats. And it was hysterical--just click the link to see what I'm talking about!) 


But while the panels and the conference itself was great, the people I met were even cooler. To name a few of my new faves:

I finally met the famous Derek Molata in person--he's even cooler/funnier IRL than he is on twitter/blogs/IM.  (And bad influence, don't even get me started on why I can no longer drink Amaretto. Thanks a lot, D!) And I met and totally fell for Rae Carson (who read from her recently sold YA trilogy and made me a diehard fan in an instant), Holly McDowell (who, from what I hear is the next Margaret Atwood), Karin Lowachee (who wrote the recent The Gaslight Dogs, which I'm reading and LOVING), and Amber van Dyk (another fabulous writer and helped to coin Derek's moniker The Chin).

What's The Chin, you might be asking? Well, here's your assignment for the day... Watch the vlog and tell me if you can figure out why it's Derek's new nickname =)

Oh, and there's a special treat at the verrrrry end, if you stick for it! (hehehe)

  1. I like your video! It looked like a lot of fun!

    Okay, I'm going to make a guess. Based on all the pictures of Derek sticking his tongue out, I'm going to guess that his ability to touch his chin with his tongue is how he got the nickname.

    Am I right? :D

  4. Wiscon was EPIC! It would be awesomer than awesome if we could hang out again soon. Perhaps with a little less amaretto. Perhaps.
