I had a great time. I finally listened to [livejournal.com profile] tim_pratt and [livejournal.com profile] matociquala and skipped the whole being-a-panelist thing. I felt a 1000 times less stressed out. At this stage in my career, I just don't get a lot out of being a panelist anymore. I'm also not a great fit for WisCon panel culture.

Instead, I hung out with my friends, met some new people, went to parties, and ate at fantastic restaurants.

I now have too many friends to make shout-outs. However, I miss all of you.

As you can read from [livejournal.com profile] rarelylynne and Sigrid Ellis, the Whedonistas' party was a monster success. I'm very proud of it. We all worked very hard to make it special.

Now we can try to top it next year with the Chicks Dig Comics' party. :-)

One of the most important things I did was spend time with my peer group. Living in crazy Lynne World means I sometimes forget that I'm not the only writer working hard to make his or her first big sale. My peers help me have a proper perspective. Also, they're awesome.

Next up, 4th Street Fantasy.

The Happy Convention Round-Up!

What did I love at this year's Gallifrey One?

1- Hanging out with our peeps for four nights of drinking, dirty jokes, and general debauchery. (Sadly, in this case debauchery means arguments about Doctor Who continuity). ;-)

2- Watching Lynne and Deb hold copies of Whedonistas for the first time.

3- The entire Whedonistas launch panel, signing, and dinner. It was a complete success. I'm sure that Lynne and Deb will blog about this in greater detail with fancy pictures. The most amusing part might be my wife, Deb, and RM giving all of their Torchwood theories to half of the current writing staff.

4- Buying Peri & Sil action figures for me and the ginormous 11th Doctor TARDIS Playset for my little fangirl (she LOVES it).

5- Watching Peter Davison, Janet Fielding, and Sarah Sutton say the things about Matthew Waterhouse that I wanted to say after reading his dreadful Blue Box Boy.

6- Helping two friends make an awesome book deal.

7- Finding out that Janet Fielding read the copy of Chicks Dig Time Lords that Lynne gave her in the Green Room after Janet referred to it on main stage panel while answering a question.

8- Taking a trip to the In-N-Out Burger.

9- Getting to meet some new people while deepening other friendships.

10- Caitlin managed to have a good weekend with my mom and aunt.
