On Cons & Writing
So I had some discussions with other writers and pros at Orycon this weekend, and there seemed to be a bit of a consensus amongst us that we were getting very tired of doing SFF conventions.
For me, cons aren't as fun as they once were. I don't get a thrill anymore meeting professionals that I idolized, nor do I seem to get much of a financial boost in terms of sales. I don't want to be one of those pros who has to man a table in the sales room to push my stuff either. I want to spend my time writing my work and not selling it.
So it seems unlikely that I'll be doing any more conventions until I have something more from New York publishing to push. That may be a couple years from now, who knows? So in the mean time I think I'll be sitting the convention scene out for the forseeable future.
