My Fellow Panelists...

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Monday, June 4, 2012

I'm heading into the heavier part of my convention schedule. If I'm not sitting on panels, I'm in the audience, heckling supporting my friends. Sometimes I'm even helping run the convention. This means I'll be sitting on, watching, and planning a number of panels about writing and the state of the publishing industry. Most of these panels will be entertaining. One or two will probably end up in shouting matches.

Before any discussion on the state of the industry or various publishing options begins, I would like to see panelists agree on the following:

The publishing path that works for one person may not work for another. Lack of success with one method does not give an author license to bash it and those who have found success with it. Success with one method does not make someone who has not had good results with that method a pathetic loser. 

On the other hand, agreement might just shut a panel down for lack of things to talk about.

Uh, carry on. ;-)
