The cat is out of the bag, so to speak:
Schedule prep for #worldcon2018 begins. I'm moderating a panel on Body Language and Writing with @scottsigler @howardtayler @Marfisk and Fred Wiehe. The best part so far? I get introduced to new writers & their work while doing mine.

I’m on a WorldCon 2018 panel discussing body language awareness and how to incorporate it into your writing along with Fred Wiehe, Scott Sigler, Howard Tayler, and Yvette Keller (moderator). Ever since I chatted with Yvette, my mind has been offering up tasty treats on the topic that I hope you will enjoy. Yvette has also asked for any questions you are dying to hear us discuss on the panel as a reply to the above Tweet.
Those of you who took my body language class so long ago will be happy (I hope :)) to discover this just might spur me to put those lessons out as a workbook at last. I’ll be adding new content as well. While I hope you’ve kept up on your body language awareness, I aim to inspire and amuse whether you’re great at it or just starting to notice.
If you can’t make it to WorldCon, fear not. I’m likely to post a few as creativity exercises on my blog once WorldCon is over. It’s been too long since I’ve asked you to draw a flower, define a salad, or react to snow. Can’t have you getting rusty.
If you are coming to WorldCon, I hope we cross paths. I’m sure to be wandering about and love hallway conversations. Fascinating discussions are pretty much guaranteed on all things science fiction, fantasy, horror, and anything related. (Hint: That last bit can extend to practically everything you can think of since cultural, political, religious, technological, etc. developments tend to inform the fiction along with odd resources like insect encyclopedias.)
My panel is on Sunday at noon at the San Jose Convention Center in room 210B. This is the only place I’m guaranteed to be found. I will try to keep up with my Twitter account (@MarFisk). If you want to arrange a gathering, please contact me there. My phone often ends up being my only consistent contact with the outside world at cons, and the volume is usually off, so please give me time to respond.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful event full of interesting people and ideas, catching up with old friends and making new ones, and of course, picking up some books to add to my towering TBR piles (yes, plural).
