shaydchara: a pen and notebook (Default)
For the rest of the panels I attended, I either didn't take notes, or only jotted down one or two things. Here's the last bits.


Writing Beyond Your Boundaries
Amanda Sun, Derwin Mak
[note, this was talking about physical/geographic boundaries, ie writing about cities you've never been to]
- literary memoirs
- travel guide books -> Lonely Planet
- YouTube

Drowning Out Distraction
Stephanie Bedwell-Grime, Julie Czerneda, James Bambury (m), Ed Greenwood, Karina Sumner-Smith

No notes at all from this - although final advice seemed to be "you don't get nice things" (until you get your words done), use whatever tricks you have to to make your brain take writing time as work time, and don't underestimate the power of self-bribery and/or accountability bribery/shaming.

Things Your Editor Needs to Know
Julie Czerneda, Gabrielle Harbowy (m), S.M. Beiko, Leah Petersen
- request and use style guide
- glossary of weird words useful
- formatting preferences (eg for telepathy)
- don't be afraid to ask what they *liked* about work
- info packet for cover artists (who don't read book) -> key images/scenes, chara descriptions

Form versus Function in Steampunk
Cliff Goodman, Stephen Hunt (m), Ashley Regimbal-Kung, Priscilla (? not sure of spelling, not in program book and didn't have name card - but she did have an awesome outfit)
- Prada fashion shoot
