Epicon

As I type I am still at Virginia Beach one day after the Epicon (a meeting for writers of ebooks). I couldn't get a reasonably priced flight back until Monday so I stayed over for another day and spent it wandering the beach and having my picture taken in a cowgirl costume ;)

I have met so may people and discussed so many ideas that I will have to sit down and break them into separate topics to blog about. I would love to hear from some of you others who were there, to hear what you learned at this year's Con.

For me the single best thing was to simply put some faces to names. It is a perculiar feeling to meet for the first time people that, in a digital fashion, I already know so well. I was sometimes asked if people were like I expected--and I realized I didn't really have any expectations. Interacting with people online is great but it is only every one dimension of the whole person and you never get much of a handle on what they will be like face to face. However I must say that everyone I met was so friendly, interesting and... willing to buy me drinks. So, a good time was had by all.

So next week will be EPICon themed. I encourage others to blog on that subject and anyone with photos to share can send them to ERECmail at gmail.com :)

I've always wanted to attend a writers' conference -- people always seem to have such a good time at them. :)
