Thought it was going to be a disaster. There were miscommunications and mixups over panel assignments. I couldn’t find my room reservation information and the Holiday Inn 800 number said I had no reservation and made me one at double the convention price because all the convention rooms were booked.
Nevertheless, T and I loaded up our stuff and went, because we trust Context.
The trust was not misplaced. Nick Winks had assigned us panels where we were able to both learn and contribute. T did a reading that resulted in a book sale.
Oh, and the hotel? At the actual hotel, it turned out that I had made a reservation, they had two reservations for me, one at the low price and one at the high price, and they cancelled the high-priced one on the spot without the late-cancellation penalty. So here’s a shout-out to the Holiday Inn Worthington and its entire staff. Well done, you!
We saw some familiar faces and met some new friends.
