In other news, the convention schedule is starting up ernest. While I won't be attending a Worldcon this year, I did attend ConDFW for the first time. I was favorably impressedmet lots of interesting peopleand had a great time. Don't know if I'll ever make it back again, but I'll definitely try. I'll also be at ConQuesT and Conestoga this year.
I've already taught my writing class for this year at UFM, but plan to teach the class again next year. (These are short, mini-classesonly three sessions eachthat are meant to serve as introduction to young writers. We cover as broad a range of topics as can be covered given our incredibly short time span. Mainly, it's a chance for newer writers to gain some exposure having their work critiqued and critiquing the work of others while also getting their questions answered.) If you're in the area and you've always wanted to be a writer but you're still figuring out how to get started, or you're started but you've ran into some stumbling blocks, feel free to sign up. Look for links, sessions, dates, times, etc. at UFM.
That's it for now. I still have plans to put some of my writing essays up for general perusal. Look for those in the coming months.
