Goals for 2012: Conventioneering

I have a lot of fun going to science fiction conventions. People who have been my heroes and who I’ve enjoyed reading for a very long time have become my friends. There is a camaraderie that is difficult to explain to others outside the genre. So I look forward to going to these. My goals for conventions in 2012 are pretty straight-forward.

1. Attend a couple more conventions as a participant

Last year I attended Readercon and Capclave as a participant as opposed to just a regular attendee. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again in 2012. So far, it looks like I’ll be a participant in Readercon. Hopefully I’ll get to do it again for Capclave as well.

2. Attend my first WorldCon

I’ve already purchased my membership so it’s just a matter of working out the scheduling logistics (not as easy as you might think with 2 kids). But at this point, I expect to be at ChiCon. I’ve requested to be on panels at WorldCon but I don’t know if that will happen.

3. Attend the Nebula Weekend

It was so much fun last year, I plan to be there again in 2012. And it’s even closer to my house in 2012 which makes it all the more easier to get to!


  1. I’ll see you at the Nebs and at Chicon (note, only one capital letter).

    I’ll also be spending a week in Washington between now and the Nebs.
