By the way, I went to Worldcon last weekend! It was a blast. One of the fun things about going to cons is that they've become less about the paneling for me (when I first started going to them I planned my panel schedule religiously, hardly missing an hour of programming) and much more about relationships and people. It's been a lot of fun to meet, hang out with, and get to know other writers, fans, and people in the business.
MidAmeriCon II was no different--I can't say no to a weekend of hanging out with some of the best folks in the business!
