Gen Con Event Registration is now open. For those harboring a desperate desire to hear me run my mouth, this is my schedule in the Writer's Symposium seminars:

THURSDAY:

Business of Writing 101, noon
Writer's Craft: Show, Don't Tell, 2 PM
Writer's Craft: Write What You Know, 5 PM

FRIDAY

Writing Novels: Story Breadcrumbs, 11 AM
Writing Novels: POV Head Hopping, 2 PM
Business of Writing, Media Tie-IN Market, 5 PM
Writer's Craft: Introducing New Worlds in Novels, 6 PM

SATURDAY

Business of Writing: Knowing When To Quit, noon. (Yes, I know, there are people who think I should have quit years ago, but I'm on it anyway, possibly to provide a bad example.)

I may have additional events in conjunction with one publisher or another,but this is it so far.
THE HOUSE HUNTER WHO DID SOME RESEARCH

REALTOR: Of all the houses on the list I sent you, the one I think you might like best is the one at 13 Nocturnus Lane.

HOUSE HUNTER: I looked it up on the Internet. Apparently there have been several gruesome, mysterious murders there.

REALTOR: Or we could start with 1255 Bright Meadow Road.

THE TEENAGER WHO RESPECTED HER ELDERS

PRINCIPAL: So that’s why we take Tranqui-Pills, Jennifer. In the olden times, strong emotion led to a war that nearly destroyed the world. Now that you understand, will you promise to take YOUR pills every day?

TEENAGER: I sure will, Principal Davis, I sure will!

THE COP WHO PLAYED BY THE RULES

HANNIGAN: The Ace of Diamonds killer and his victim could be right on the other side of this door!

GOMEZ: You can’t go in, partner! We don’t have a warrant or probable cause!

HANNIGAN: Darn, you’re right. We have to respect the Constitution. You want to get some lunch?

THE COP WHO PLAYED BY THE RULES 2: THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL (ALTHOUGH NOT SO PERSONAL THAT HE TURNED INTO SOME KIND OF MAVERICK OR SOMETHING)

THE LIEUTENANT: You’re too close to this one, Hannigan! You’re off the case!

HANNIGAN: Okay, Lieutenant, if that’s what you think is best.

THE SCIENTIST AND THE CLERGYMAN

CLERGYMAN: Victor, you have to stop! Man was never meant to resurrect the dead! That’s the province of the Almighty!

SCIENTIST: Gee, I never thought about it that way. Shut it down, Ygor! Shut it all down!
