One of the nice things about being a writer is going to conventions and catching up with readers and other writers.

Here I am with Karen Miller, Kylie Chan and Marianne de Pierres at GenCon in Brisbane. We're wearing necklaces made by Belinda, who surprised us all with these lovely hand made gifts!

Here's Belinda with Marianne.

Along with with South Australian writer, David Conyers, we've talked about old spec fic TV shows and what we learnt from them. Go 'Blake's 7'.

We've discussed the 'Path to Publication' and revealed what we wish we could tell ourselves, if we could go back in time.

And we've discussed how to meet deadlines, and tap into creativity.

And tomorrow, Marianne and Kylie will be doing a reading. For anyone who is interested, GenCon is being held in Brisbane at the Convention Centre at South Bank.

What's your favourite things about Conventions?

Tansy, it IS important. if you're sitting up on stage on a panel, talking about writing, people have to have something to look at. Marianne's wonderfully graphic hair was a real eye catcher!
