Last Friday night was my first public reading and my first visit to a sci-fi convention. New, and yet so familiar.
Reading my own work was much easier than either playing with a band or doing standup, because I didn’t have to memorize anything. And the Lunacon experience was much like a folk music conference. A similar crowd but with cosplay replacing banjos.
We were an impressive group. Good stories read right. The plan is for the BSFW to do Lunacon every year, and I plan on taking part.
