Yo, johnnyeponymous!

I've got a bad idea.

A really bad idea.

You're already doing a "fanzine in an hour" in the lounge.

You need to do a "Fanwriters with Drinks" drunkzine in an evening!

Your blog counts. Hell, if you're willing to write, whatever you write and submit counts, particularly if johnnyeponymous is exercising his usual editorial control.

If you want ideas of what a fanzine can be (and a fanzine lounge fanzine can be), check out:

Orange Soda, the fanzine-in-an-hour of this BayCon

Naught Left but the Lash, a hoax newsletter of this BayCon

...or for a more general view check out any issue of The Drink Tank. The lovely and talented britgeekgrrl has a great article in Issue 170.

The Plokta cabal started by doing newszines in the bar. It's not likely we'll match their quality, but it's really not a bad idea at all.

I love it! We can make it happen one of the nights...maybe Thursday...

And did you see that Armistead Maupin's gonna be reading at Writers with Drinks? I haven't been back to WWD since the time I absolutely bombed reading there, but Armistead Maupin!

Are there any fan readings session planned by Program? (We used to call 'em Fan-o-rama.) For those of us who aren't writers, perhaps we could read classic articles aloud during this WWD. Perhaps we could thereby qualify for drinks also!

I can both do the thing, and be the drinkmistress, or whatever you like.
