Ah, WisCon. Heart of my heart.

In some cases, I'd say a picture's worth way more than a thousand words. This is one of them. 

One of the cases, I mean, not one of the pictures. 

Because, um, there are multiple pictures. 

Enjoy!
Late night dinner with:
Derek Molata
Jacqueline Koyanagi
Brad Beaulieu
Holly McDowell
Taking the pic: Carolina Valdez Miller (see her gorgeous face below)




Siiiiingin' in the rain.

Not really.

But we could have been.

Still smiling, despite having just learned that we can't purchase alcohol past 9 in Madison . . .
At approximately 9:15.
Dagger.

How much would Apple love this photo? iPad. iPhone. Macbook.
Derek reading from his AMAZEBALLS manuscript.
Trust me, you would have LOVED it.
Holly's turn to read! And her book is completely fabulous as well.
Seriously. Love. Love. LOVE.
SUSHI. 'Nuff said.
<3 There are no words.
Which is hard for a writer to admit.
Miss you.
So there ya have it. I added a few more photos to facebook, if you want to see. And, seriously, if you write SF/F, you should definitely consider adding WisCon to your schedule next year.

How was your weekend? Anything fun and exciting happen? Have you been following the Wall Street Journal article thing? (If not, check . out . these . links.) (Or the #yasaves hashtag on twitter. The responses from this community have been absolutely amazing.)

  8. Aww! Looks like so much fun! I alllllmost went this year. My sister's co-worker is one of the conference organizers and she always invites me along, but it's always a balance with me and seeing my family over the holiday weekend.
    Maybe next year
