The schedule is up and I’m on it five times! I’m not quite sure how that happened, but this wide-eyed first-timer is very grateful. You can find the whole shebang on the WorldCon site. But here are my appearances in a nutshell:

Gail Carriger (the Parasol Protectorate and Custard Protocol series) and Shelley Adina (the Magnificent Devices series) write steampunk with a feminist and funny bent. Join them for some laughter, some craft, some great clothes, and a little speculation about why steampunk lends itself so well to strong heroines.

Suppose your character arcs are clear, your tension is tight, your pacing is perfect. What about the words? How do you avoid plain, plodding prose? When should you go passive or active? When should sentences be longer or shorter? How many words should you cut from dialogue? Our panel of writers share their techniques and approaches!
