This weekend I will be at FOGcon, which is a wonderful literary and things convention up in Walnut Creek. I have been several times in the past and always thoroughly enjoy it.
This year I will once again be on panels, as well. I’m definitely excited although it comes with the standard helping of imposter syndrome and feeling as if I am unqualified to be at the front of a room speaking about these things. Even when I know that’s untrue, and one of the best ways that I’ve found to conquer this particular version of imposter syndrome is by actually doing the thing that’s making me anxious. Damn brainweasels always getting into everything… Saturday evening will be When It’s Friends who are Hurting You and on Sunday morning I will be on Ancient Myths and Modern Culture.
In any case, now it’s time for me to shut my computer down so that I can pack it into my backpack. Even when the trip is just a few hundred miles across California in my own car, I enjoy getting the chance to hit the road.
Oh, and for those of you who already know me: my hair is teal now.
