Time to pack for ChattaCon.  What do I need?  Hawaiian shirts?  It’s out of season, but it’s my thing.  Plus I got a new one for Christmas, so yup, the Don Ho collection comes with.  What else?  Laptop, as always, but I doubt I’ll have much time to write.  Forecast suggests a raincoat might be worth the trouble.  Doesn’t look like I own any books to get signed by guests…so just the Kindle for reading (plus whatever I buy there). Oh, and my business cards.  Other than that, no special equipment required.  I don’t costume or game and I have nothing to sell.  Just a weekend being a SF fan and writer.  Yippee.

I’m slated for just one panel: surviving the zombie apocalypse.  That will be fun.  Has it been done?  Sure, but that won’t stop us.  I’ll probably try to sneak onto another panel or two or at least be that obnoxious guy in the audience that thinks he’s on the panel.  There’s one on newbie writers where my Writers of the Future experiences might be appreciated.  Then there’s always the hang-at-the-bar panel, always a crowd pleaser.  I’m quite certain I’ll be on that panel at some point.

If you’re anywhere near the Chattanooga area this weekend (that’s the south-east corner of Tennessee), consider hopping by the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel for ChattaCon.  The consuite is killer and has two of my favorite double-e words: free beer.  What more needs to be said?
