No, I wasn't at a Star Wars convention, but something even better: PNWA's 2012 Writers Conference.
This year's theme was: Characters in Motion. Even though I hijacked the Star Wars mural, I thought it would be an appropriate introductory image, since I write so much about Star Wars gaming.
I learned a lot and even got--not one--but two--homework assignments from Christina Katz, our Sunday Morning Keynote speaker.
In the upcoming weeks, I'll post about my misadventures and about each of the workshops I attended. There's a lot to sift through, so please be patient.
The PNWA staff did a top-notch job coordinating this convention and deserve high praises from all the attendees. So I was able to enjoy myself, despite the mild migraine attack on Friday and the dead battery in my Jeep on Saturday.
The Jeep needed an emergency battery transplant at a local Les Schwab shop, which made me two hours late. I missed the first workshop I wanted to attend and the initial 20 minutes of the second workshop.
Once I sat down, instead of taking notes, I scribbled a page-long rant about my ordeal, which made me feel better afterwards.
Now I see why some (all?) writers say: Writing is cheaper than therapy.
