Hey, it just occurred to me that I'm going to be at a con this weekend and people might want to be able to find me. Here's my schedule:

Fri 9:00 - 10:15PM
Does Google Find The Real You?
Although a variety of social media tools permit you to make online spaces which feel personal, the result is visible to millions. If you’re online, you’re creating an online reputation. We’ll discuss "online reputation management" that ensures your future employers, colleagues, friends, and self are finding the real you. Don’t forget to Google your name before you come with your ideas! Bill "whump" Humphries. Talks-with-wind, Heather Lindsley, Kelly McCullough, Heidi Waterhouse

Sun 10:00 - 11:15AM
Synopsis: a Necessary Evil?
Do we really need them? Why? Is there an easy or at least less painful way to write one? Get tips from people whose next sale may depend on how good their synopsis is.Participants: Sylvia Kelso. Kelly McCullough, Caroline Stevermer

Sun 2:30 - 3:45PM
Consistency vs. Variety
Many writers long to stretch their writing muscles, working in different universes and broadening their scope and depth. Publishers and some elements of the reading public seem to prefer consistency: they like a writer who turns out a series, sometimes effectively the same book over and over again. How does a writer balance their own creative need for variety with the consumers' desire for consistency? Participants: Monica Valentinelli. Lori Devoti, Liz L. Gorinsky, Kelly McCullough

Mon 11:30AM - 12:45PM
