So...

writercon 2009 is a go. It's in Minneapolis, July 30-August 2.

I have...really mixed emotions about this. On the one hand, I've been to both previous WriterCons and had a tremendous time. I love meeting my fannish peers and getting all meta with stuff and talking about writing.

On the other hand.

  • Something like this will run me, conservatively, about a thousand dollars. That's a thousand dollars I could spend going to Mile Hi Con or ArmadilloCon or some other pro Con.

  • I've written one fanfic in the last, oh, two years. Count 'em, Jim, one. And I'm not planning on writing any more. My focus has entirely shifted to original fiction.

  • Fandom has splintered and scattered somewhat since 2004 and 2006. Honestly, the only fanfic I'm reading anymore is Iron Man and KKBB. I can't remember the last time I read anything in Buffy, Angel, or Firefly. I barely skim the newsletters anymore.

    So...yeah. Now, if there's going to be a pro track, I'd definitely be interested in that, and in fact would be more than happy to be on panels about making the transition, finding markets, etc. But if that's not a factor, well, then...

    Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
