Hello from Readercon! Wish you were here.
But since you aren’t — or are and want to add another layer to your con experience by reading a blog (I won’t judge) — I’m going to do my best to bring a Readercon panel series right to your screen by liveblogging an experiment in storytelling that is due to begin at 6 p.m. EDT.
Elizabeth Bear, Kyle Cassidy, Lee Moyer and Michael Swanwick will be building a story from scratch over the next 48 hours. (The full description is here at #85.) I foolishly said, “wouldn’t it be fun to live-blog the process?” And here we are. Lessons, I suspect, will be learned.
I’m slightly concerned that Cassidy just wandered by on his way to collect story ingredients from the Guest of Honor. He seemed to be skipping just a little bit and had the slightest mad scientist glint in his eye.
