CONFLUX - a chance to meet Dave

Postby Ember » Tue Sep 20, 2016 3:02 am

Hi guys,

I am SUPER excited, because the weekend after next is Conflux, an Australian Spec fic convention. And guess who is going to be there???

Yes. YES! Dave Farland. He is giving a few presentations/interviews over the course of the weekend. It is like the universe *wants* me to win this thing. (Actually, universe, I was hoping for a Canberra workshop, but I'll take it).

So for the Australians on the board, you might want to think about heading to Canberra for Conflux. And for everyone else ... if I get an opportunity to ask him a question, what should I ask?

Thanks, I will. And of course I'll pass on any words of wisdom I pick up :)

Given recent discussion on the threads, I might ask Dave what Silver HMs means to him.

I've seen his kicks on Rejections, and Honourable Mentions, but not on Silver HM. Actually, I haven't seen anything on Semi-Finalist either. I vaguely remember that Finalist means "You are publishable!"

Semi-Finalist means you get a critique from Dave. With mine, he told me what I did well and where I fell short from making finalist. It was only a few lines, but it was very insightful.
