Just got back from a day spent at a local sci-fi/fantasy convention called Life, the Universe, and Everything. It's on the BYU campus in Provo. I had never been to BYU before. It's a nice looking campus, though it's a bit of an unusual experience for a non-Mormon. Not scary, but...a bit odd.
I enjoyed the day at the Con. There were surprisingly good and well-attended panel discussions, and I enjoyed talking with all the local writers there. The writing luminaries at LTUE included Orson Scott Card, Brandon Sanderson, and Gail Carson Levine. My writer bud Paul Genesse and the impressive young poet JoSelle Vanderhooft were also there, slinging words and promotional swag. Good times.
We're going back tomorrow, and I anticipate that we'll have a great time then, too. That, as they say, is the news. Hope you're all doing well in this new year.
