Birthday greetings and future plans - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Birthday greetings and future plans
I have seriously neglected my Birthday posts. I went 3 days without checking the list and missed several people including some very long-standing Friends.

Belated happy birthdays to mefnord, opalescence, and souloftherose

and happy birthday to mnmbelle

Only 11 days to go now until my posting day for the watchersdiaries ficathon, 5 of which will be work days when I can't do any writing, and I haven't even started on 'Days of No Trust'. Meep! And I want to do updates for 'Tabula Avatar', 'Life, Resumed', and 'Dojo Hard', and a 'Where did Olaf go' ficlet or two as well. Reading will have to take a back seat to writing for a while. And it might take me a while to respond to the comments on my last post.

I won't be able to go to the mini-meet preceding a possible forthcoming UK Writercon (see writerconuk). I will be at work and the possibility of swapping holidays to free up that period has now been ruled out. I think that I might like to go to the full thing, however, assuming that work permits. If I do go I might even be able to make an actual practical contribution. A panel on writing fight scenes? Would this be interesting?

YES! That would definitely be interesting. And UK Writercon? That's the first I hear of that, but I absolutely love the idea. After going all the way to Atlanta for the last one I'd love having one a bit closer to home. Hehe, I think your post just made my day.

Go and sign up to the comm, then. It's all incredibly early in teh planning stage as yet, so the more input the better - especially from someone who's actually been to one!

I'd go to the full thing.
Fight scenes are hard, but I quite like doing them.

I think many writers would find a panel about writing fight scenes interesting, especially since you do them so well. Have fun at the con!

I know I'd really enjoy that - and anything on how men write women and women write men - you are one of our prized token males in the fandom, after all!

Yes! I won't be able to go to a UK Writercon, but if I could... I'd be really interested in a panel like that. An excellent suggestion, and a great icon to go with it! A fight-writing panel sounds cool (and useful!), as well.

Do it, Speakr! ::waves pompoms::

That would be fun! Especially if we could all get up and do the choreography... ooh, we should bring plastic swords!

Thank You very much! *beams*

Thank you very much! As someone who is a big fan, I must say it always brings a little smile when you remember me! Thanks again!

Thanks for the pimp. I've forwarded your suggestion to the community along with gillo's addition. Am I right in thinking you're actually volunteering to run a panel?

I really musty catch up with your writing, I'm way behind. You're quite the dynamo these days.

I was throwing it at the wall to see if it stuck. I would certainly be willing to run a panel if people were interested.
