Sunday's Flycon schedule

Flycon 2009 is still going strong, with one more full day (plus some) of programming. Here's the full schedule, complete with links to each panel "room."

NOTE: Anyone can participate--you don't need a login or a LiveJournal username or a secret handshake. Just reply to a response to comment on it, or start a new thread with a new question.***

My schedule today (copied and updated from Thursday's post, all times Eastern US):

Sunday 7am: I WOULD NEVER HAVE SAID THAT AND YOU KNOW IT. Writers breaking the fourth wall to interview characters: Some writers find interviewing characters and having characters ‘talk’ in posts fun, helpful, and others find it awful. Some readers love it when writers do it on blogs, others look away and pretend it never happened. Discuss character building and breaking the fourth wall. With Stephanie Gildart.

Sunday 11am: Families in fantasy. Many heroes are unmarried orphans without siblings or children. Why this is so common and what do writers do when they do give their heroes families? With Julia Rios and Devon Monk.

Sunday 7pm: Evolution of the vampire in fiction. Panel: Does it say anything about our culture, or just something about the shift in who likes to read about them? With Stephanie Gildart and Pati Nagle.

Sunday 11pm: Writing: Alpha and Beta Reading Process #2. With JC Runolfson, Moondancer Drake, and Pati Nagle. (note: this is basically the same panel as yesterday repeated at two different times, not a part one and part two continuation.)

Hope to see you there!
