|Reading poetry at the vineyard|
on a windy autumn day.
I wanted to attend the con first and foremost because I wanted to meet other genre writers in the local area. Even though I've been in Maryland for more than ten years, I still haven't met many other writers. I was hoping I'd come away with a few new contacts for writerly advice and friendship. I also was hoping to learn and have fun!
|My tarot spread - apparently I'm gathering|
my resources for a change my friends already
know is coming. Hmm.
We got to wrap up Friday with a ghost tour. I'd never been on one before, and I enjoyed crunching through the leaves on dark streets, hearing about hauntings. But the best was the final stop. We spent an hour in an antique shop having our tarot read, and listening for ghosts on the upper floor. Very atmospheric and not just a little bit creepy!
|The Fanged, Furry, and Fabulous Panel!|
Glad to be a part.
|The last of the group hanging out at|
the vineyard on Sunday.
It was a fine weekend, and I encourage any lovers of fantasy, horror, or sci-fi to come out next year and join in the fun! Many thanks to Rachel Rawlings, who organized the event!
