When Words Collide is almost here

When Words Collide multi-genre writing conference gets going tomorrow (Friday). I’ll be there from my morning sex-writing workshop through the mystery writers’ evening party, with (I hope) an afternoon break at home. My first panel takes place Friday at 6:00 PM, right before the keynote addresses. “Eve of Destruction” features a half dozen mystery writers talking about how we keep our female sleuths from becoming cliches.

Saturday evening, I’ll be at the mass autograph session, which is open to the public. Sunday at 10:00 AM I’m on a panel called Pantser, Plotter or Quilter. We’ll talk about what methods we use (if any) to keep our stories from going astray.

The rest of the time, I plan to attend lots of sessions. So many look interesting, it will be hard to limit myself. People can still register for the conference at the door. I look forward to chatting with some of you there and crashing after the jam-packed weekend.
