Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021

I’ll admit it — I’m not cut out for the virtual convention life. I had a conversation with a friend earlier this week and brought up how late I was in writing this con report, and she pointed out that my experience with this year’s In Your Write Mind 2021 was even more skewed thanContinue reading “Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021”

In Your Write Mind 2021 Schedule!

For the second summer in a row, I am sadly missing my pilgrimage to Seton Hill University, where I got my MA in Writing Popular Fiction, to connect with old friends and new for the In Your Write Mind workshop. This year, luckily, I will get a taste of the fun by participating in theContinue reading “In Your Write Mind 2021 Schedule!”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

It’s a gorgeous day outside, and summer is my favorite season, so I’m here to celebrate a great month and look forward to an even better one. I am now fully vaccinated, so I got to hang out with my best friend in person for the first time in nearly 18 months, along with planningContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

Con Report: Balticon 55

For the second year in a row, the Baltimore Science Fiction Society hosted their annual convention, Balticon, as a virtual, online event. The perk to this is enjoying panels from the comfort of my own home; the drawback is the lack of social connection I generally enjoy at in-person events. The organizers did an amazingContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 55”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

It’s been a quiet month here at Casa Siamese, with all the big news over in the spouse’s department. He started a new job and has to wear business casual for the first time in his life (as opposed to jeans and a hoodie when he was a shop technician or the military uniform he’sContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

February is already a short month, and being productive made it feel even shorter. Or maybe that was the old-fashioned cold that laid me up for a week of it. Major changes lately include settling into my new multi-computer setup for officially working from home full-time, setting up the new mattress and bed frame thatContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

Con Report: Farpoint 2021

Let’s face it — for the weird sorts of introvert like me, who can put that on hold for a certain amount of time to people it up for two or three days at a convention and then hide at home for a week afterward, a virtual event will never be the same. As muchContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2021”
