CTRWA Fiction Fest Aftermath

            Fiction Fest was a success, and I'm not just talking overall, which it was, but my end of it. My presentation/Q&A went very well. I fulfilled my promise of ruining childhood fairy tales for everyone, but we all had a good time doing it (heh).

            Quite a few people afterward told me how much they enjoyed it, and how much I opened their eyes to a different way of thinking about fairy tales. Others---including My friend Jane, who roped me into this in the first place---suggested presenting at future conferences, and even in different locations. The idea struck a chord in me, and I think it's something I'm going to pursue.
            I also did quite a bit of networking, which I believe will turn into great friendships (once they, y'know, forgive me for destroying their childhood stories). So, thank you, CTRWA Fiction Fest, I had a great time, and I look forward to making you need more years of therapy in the future.
