It's 4 p.m. on Monday. I have work in an hour. I woke up an hour ago. And I'm preoccupied by the question, "Do I really know enough about bees?"
I think it's probably too soon to make definite statements about what panels I'm on at Readercon, because the whole schedule isn't out yet, but from the back-end it looks like they've assigned Thursday and Sunday? And anyway, one of the panels I think I'm most likely on is Thursday's "Bees!"
My original plan when it came to my panels was to come prepared with plenty of links and research, keep track of what I mention during the panel and what other people bring up, and post panel summaries with links afterwards. At this point, I'm beginning to feel like it might be a good idea to write coherent posts and publish them in advance, because that may be a much better way to marshal my thoughts into a form I can be confident will make a bit of sense when expressed to a crowd of strangers and acquaintances.
In case you're wondering: yes, I've been checking the panel sign-up page about every three hours since I first filled it out.
