I’m already exhausted thinking about all the things I still have to do to get ready for [community profile] oddcon , not to mention the other events happening today. This week (starting today) there’s a chance to win a copy of Ancestral Magic over at Women and Word’s blog (just comment to be added to the drawing, and I’m have a chat over all day at the Henderson Files.

Here’s what the weekend list on panels looks like (at least the one’s I’m in). Except for the RFR, and dear Lori in the one panel, the testosterone looks to be high for these. Should prove interesting.

Friday 10:30 pm

13. Crossing Cultures. Let us explore the phenomenon of creating futures in which culture is not the standard "Indo-European paradigm; where people aren't all white bread. Why and how do writers choose the settings and cultural paradigms in their novels? Do you what you know? Write what you'd like to see happen? Write what you fear the future will be? What comes first, the world, or the story? (Or the characters?). Writing. Moondancer Drake, Jim Frenkel, Sean T. Stiennon, Patrick Rothfuss

Saturday 4pm (after the author signings, if you are there feel free to come to those and say hi)

17. Broad Universe Rapid-Fire Readings. Members of the Broad Universe group will do short readings. F.J. Bergmann Moondancer Drake, Lori Devoti, Kathy Sullivan

Sunday 10:00 am

50. People and Animals. There are animals in the lives of most writers. How do the animals they put in their books function? Are they necessary to the sanity of writers? Do they chiefly function as a means to explore human character and personality? Should all animals be shot? All people? Will Shetterly, Moondancer Drake, Chris Welch, Lori Devoti, Jim Frenkel

Sunday 1pm

58. Writing Realistic Action. Fighting armored soldiers or an alien demon, clinging to the back of a dragon, casting an enormous spell - it is fantastic, but it needs to seem real. How does a writer control the elements of time, space and movement to create a believable action scene? (could include scriptwriting and comics). Patrick Rothfuss, Alex Bledsoe, Adrian Drake, Moondancer Drake
