This would ordinarily be a devastating event in my life, but as it happened, I’d finished an older notebook while I was here and picked up a free new notebook from the NEO MFA program, but the only things I’d managed to scribble in the new notebook were panel notes and a couple of story ideas. The story ideas I remember well enough that I haven’t lost them. The rest . . . well, I’m sad to see those notes gone, but, as Vonnegut would say, so it goes.
Besides, I only attended two panels today, neither of which was terribly impressive.
The rest of the time, I was browsing the bookstore and harassing fellow writers or else attending readings.
I write fiction and teach college writing and literature. I'm the author of the story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Them, the novel Hagridden, and the flash fiction chapbooks Box Cutters and Where There Is Ruin.
