Yay! That's me! Rachel/_sin_attract/tall Asian girl in heels. I am really, really bad with names and maybe you are too, so this will hopefully make it easier.

I also have an entire write up on the con with pictures included over here at my journal for everyone to read. If any of you have a problem with being in a photo I posted, just let me know. Hopefully it's fun to read and not just crazy ramblings from a still-exhausted con-attendee.

And I know it's been said by everyone else, but it really can't be repeated enough. Thank you to the wonderful gals who came up with this idea and gave us fangirls an amazing weekend and, personally, one of the best experiences I've ever had. <3 <3

Amber's WINCHESTERCON 2006 Recap

A smallish picture of me so people can remember who they're talking to:

EVERYONE WAS AWESOME. Thanks again to estrella30 & ethrosdemon & everyone else who worked their asses off this weekend so we could be drunken fangirls the whole time. I can't wait until next year.

I just wanted to say hello to everyone I got a chance to meet this weekend. You are all fabulous and I had an incredible time. Big thanks, of course, to Kassie and Nan for throwing the whole shindig. My bitty con report is over here.

also, if there are any pictures of me floating around out there, feel free to post them.

Man was this weekend a blast! Totally worth the awful plane travel. I've posted a report of a sort, though it's short and not very detailed and has no pictures... ^^ The pictures will be up hopefully tomorrow in another post. But for anyone interested, feel free to stop on by and browse the goods. My LJ is friends locked, but I made this one public.

Holy Hell, y'all.  My recap needs a Beta.  Also there are pictures if you wish to see them let me know.  There were sexy bitches who threatened people if their pics made it to the internets...

Behold! 'Tis I and my MOMMY!
This is me.  If you met me you remember my loud voice and that I brought my Mom to WinCon. ('cause I win the "Is Still 12" prize)

I talked to Nan about this at the con, and I wanted to let everyone know that I have bucketloads of webspace if anyone needs to host their pictures. My webhost has a gallery program that will allow people to set up albums, so if you need somewhere to upload your photos, I set something up here:


You need to register to upload your photos but NOT to view photos, so it may be easier for some people than some of the other sites that require user registration to view albums, and I don't care if you hotlink these all over, since I have 90 gazillion gigs of bandwidth. If you're interested in and want more info on setting up an album, it's under the cut.

As everyone else has mentioned, please don't post photos here without obtaining the permission of the people in them first.

Thanks to Anna, JJ, Kate, Kassie, and Nan for ALL of the amazing hard work. This was a great experience, and I loved having the opportunity to meet everyone! :)

So much love for Kassie, Nan, Anna, Jacyn, Kate for doing this for us.

Nothing especially interesting about Winchestercon at my journal.

Thanks everyone, for being (please imagine Nan's accent when you read this:) AWESOMECAKES.

ETA: Fixed. Thanks, moosesal!

For those of you who didn't get this because I didn't make enough copies or those who want an electronic copy or those not at the con who want this, here's the handout I made with commonly confused words and a few grammar tips.

I had intended to talk a little bit about proofing your own work, but we ran out of time. In any event, that was the inspiration for the handout. I hope you find it helpful. I certainly had fun coming up with some of the examples.

I welcome questions about the beta process anytime. You can comment here or e-mail me if you ever want to discuss an issue of being a beta or getting a beta or whatever. Have a question you didn't get to ask at the panel, ask away.

Many thanks to my copanelists and the attendees. This panel was much better than the last con panel I was on.

Commonly Confused Words handout (yousendit)


Thanks also to estrella30 and ethrosdemon for making WinCon so freaking awesome.

If anyone's interested, my con report can be found in my journal.

If anyone has pictures of me from the panel or from anywhere else, feel free to post in your journal. If you want to post outside your journal, please ask. The last thing I need is to run for public office in 5 years and have pictures of my ass shaking show up in the local paper. In any event, drop me an lj comment or an e-mail if you post so I know what pics are where? Thanks.

Hi. I really do want to thank Nan and Kassie again for putting this all together and making it absolutely fabulous. I can't express how much fun I had or how grateful I was to have the opportunity to meet and hang out with My Fandom. It was awesome, y'all.

I modded the panel on Beta/Concrit and for anyone who is interested or didn't get the handout the first time, I've posted it to my LJ here. Thank you femmenerd, moosesal and mona1347 for making it much less horrifying than I was afraid and actually quite a lot of fun.

I haven't covered the whole con, but my recap of Friday can be found here. I'll update this when I post pictures and the rest of my con report.

My con report is posted here. Many thanks to the concom and the fangirls that made this weekend so much fun.
