Going to Wisconsin
It's time for what is becoming an annual pilgrimage -- the trip to Madison Wisconsin for WisCon -- a feminist sff conference. I'm participating in the Writer's workshop again this year, as I'm working on the sequel to the book that DAW has held practically forever.
It's been a real struggle trying to decide how much backstory to put in, how to describe the problem and the relationships that evolved over an entire book in such a way that they seem believable, but which also is not repetitive for the person who has already read book one.
Not an easy task, so I'm going to be getting some comment from a professional writer and two other writers who submitted their work.
On the way, I'm stopping off in Indianapolis to interview a young woman for the Muslim girl magazine.
The long and short of it is, I'll likely be pretty scarce this weekend, although I may post from the conference as the hotel has internet acces and WisCon is always inspirational and thought provoking.
