An update to my Orycon schedule (bolded):

Sat Nov 13 2:00:pm - 3:00:pm -- Theme
What is theme? How do you develop theme in your writing, or should you even try? For the sake of future graduate students studying your brilliant prose, learn about this often-neglected aspect of storytelling.
Jessica Reisman, Grá Linnaea, Sara A. Mueller, (*)Mary Rosenblum/Mary Freeman, Bill Johnson

Sat Nov 13 4:00:pm - 5:00:pm -- Revision: Path to better writing or slog into mud?
Endless revisions can kill good writing, but everyone says polish your work. Besides, the first draft is usually bad, right? How to navigate through the apparent contradictions without going crazy.
Steve Perry, Jessica Reisman, (*)Lori Ann White, Grá Linnaea, S.D. Perry

Sat Nov 13 5:30:pm - 6:00:pm -- Jessica Reisman's Reading
Please come! I'll show you a good time!

Sun Nov 14, 12:00 - 1:00 -- "What is Magical Realism?" - Can someone explain it to us?
Grá Linnaea, Craig Laurance Gidney, Blythe Ayne, Jessica Reisman

Sun Nov 14 2:00:pm - 3:00:pm -- 1 cup F, 2 cups SF, 1 tsp H in blender ...
Combining genres--What readers want from blended genre stories, and why some editors and agents have trouble with them.
Jessica Reisman, (*)J. Steven York, P.N. Elrod, Seanan McGuire

(... sometimes I wonder what I was on when I filled out a con survey...)

This is my first Orycon--I will be super grateful to anyone who shows up for my reading or just says hi!
