Last year I'd planned to attend FenCon and take part in the writer's workshop.  But you know how life is and plans had to be changed so I didn't get to go.  Thankfully, the wonderful people at FenCon rolled my membership fee and writer's workshop fee over to this year so I'm going this year.  Or at least I'm going to do my best to make it. 

Last week, I received info for the writer's workshop.  The deadline to submit pages is July 15th.  Naturally I wasn't ready.  I hadn't even decided on what to submit much less have it ready to be seen by anyone other than myself.   

Now, it had to be a fantasy type novel or short story so I pulled up all my WIPs and gave 'em a good reading over to see which project I wanted to work on.  After much contemplation, I made a decision and copied the first ten pages into a new document so I can polish 'em up and get 'em ready to see the public.

After tweaking the pages, I sent them to my critique group.  We meet tonight to discuss things so I'm excited/anxious to see what they say. 

Be sure to check out the FenCon link and if you are close by, join us.  It should be an excellent conference.

And speaking of conferences...  What cons will you be attending this year?
