Balticon – Day 4 – This is the End…

I really enjoyed myself, met a lot of great people, but (oh, boy!) am I tired.

Many attendees have already made their way back home, and attendance is light on this, the final, day.

I attended Networking 101 in the morning (fabulous!), and spent the afternoon in a four-hour seminar called How to Teach Science Fiction and Fantasy. Catherine Asaro presented an excellent session on including hard science in stories if you’re not a scientist (a common complaint of young students.)

I’m not a teacher, by training or trade, but I found the seminar useful on so many levels…

Tomorrow: a trip to BWI to send-off my friend…and then back to the mundane grind.
