Semi-Final Program Grid for Lawrence Watt-Evans
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Lawrence Watt-Evans may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 9:00 pm: The (non) Holy Bible (Ends at: 9:55 pm)|
Panelists: Lawrence Watt-Evans
Not that one, but a series bible for your series. How do writers keep track of the myriad of facts in a series? What isthe difference with shared world bibles and those for authors’ own series? Do writers plan the bible in advance, as they go, or fill in afterwards? What information goes in and why?

|Saturday 10:30 pm: I Swear It’s All True (Ends at: 11:55 pm)|
Panelists: Jean Marie Ward (M), Lawrence Watt-Evans
Panelists regal fans with their best “true” stories about things that happened to them. The moderator will give prompts, “Things that happened when I was supposed to be writing,” “Craziest thing that happened at a convention,” “Weirdest interaction with an editor or agent,” and “How I learned a lesson I’ll never forget.”
|Sunday 2:00 pm: The Infinite Series: Book #Ten Million (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: John G. Hemry, Dave Klecha (M), Lawrence Watt-Evans
Once, even lowly hobbits could defeat a darklord in just three books. Now series seem to go on and on and on. Why? Whose fault is it – publishers, authors, or readers? What if the author wants to write something else? Can we shorten the series?
|Sunday 3:00 pm: Stories in a Series (Ends at: 3:55 pm)|
Panelists: Brenda Clough, Sam Lubell, Bud Sparhawk (M), Lawrence Watt-Evans
Some authors use short stories to explore aspects of a series' universe that aren’t enough for a whole novel. Or to write about the backstory of minor characters or fill in the gaps? What writers do this well? How can you make these stories understandable to those who have not read the series and let readers of the novels know about stories?
