Pikes Peak Writers Conference Schedule
This weekend, I’m off to the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in Colorado, where I’ll be joining Chuck Wendig, Gail Carriger, and Hank Phillippi Ryan as Keynote Speakers for the event.
I’ll also be presenting a workshop on getting through your first draft, doing some panels, and chasing Chuck around with a cupcake gun I borrowed from Delilah Dawson. Supersonic chocolate cupcakes OF DEATH!
Anyway, here’s the schedule, for anyone who might want to stop by. And if you don’t want to stop by, that’s fine. I DIDN’T WANT YOU AT MY PANEL ANYWAY! ::Sniff::
- 2:30 – Read & Critique 123, Aspen Leaf (with Terri Bischoff, Carlisle Webber)
- 4:00 – Workshop: Getting Through Draft One, Salon BC

This should be a lot of fun. How do I know? Well, among other reasons, it’s because the bar will be serving Brass Goggles, Primetime, Goblin Wiz, and F-Bomb:
From left to right:
- Gail Carriger’s Brass Goggles: 1 1/2 OZ Scotch Whiskey, 2 dash bitters, 1 OZ club soda.

As a general rule, I don’t drink, but I may need to make an exception this weekend 🙂

At that altitude, you won’t need more than one drink to get buzzed!
Walk slowly and do not run, unless you LIKE wheezing and gasping for air.

Oh, yes. They’ve already warned us about that 🙂

You do not put things in Scotch whiskey, even ice. I suggest trying it with bourbon whiskey, if you must. Or rum. Rum is colonial Victorian.
