BoucherCon 2010 (4)
I always begin BoucherCon with the best of intentions when it comes to panels. I search the schedule before I make lunch dates and appointments, because I really do enjoy listening to my fellow writers speak, and after 23 years of writing, I still have a lot to learn. So I go through the preliminary schedule and circle a bunch based either on the panelists or the topic. And then I make my own appointments. And then the Con begins, and any plans I had go out the window.
This year was worse than most, of course, since I had guest of honor things on top of seeing editors and agents and what-have-you. But still, I managed to get to a few panels and interviews, and I enjoyed them.
Because in the end, BoucherCon is all about the people.
