Five Questions

From aadler

When Alix turned up on LJ a few days ago, he'd just posted his answers to someone's five questions (they're really interesting -- go read!). I commented on that post, and as we re-met, he offered to ask me questions, as well. I thought it would be a good exercise to try, and he's been patient with me.

(heavily filtered so as to avoid stirring up WC ancient history...)

1. What are your five best memories of WriterCon? (Not to include my presence there; even if it qualifies — yeah, right — I’m seeking information rather than positive strokes.)

2. You read, you write, you demonstrate the requisite modesty regarding the quality of your own work. What is the story you most wish you could write … and may yet, but you’re just not up to it at this point?

3. What is the greatest upside, followed by the greatest downside, of hosting a fan convention rather than just attending one? And the greatest upside/downside of attending rather than hosting?

4. If you could have one of the actual Buffy/Angel CHARACTERS (not the person playing that character) at WriterCon II, which one do you think would provide the biggest reward in ratio to the number of blood sacrifices you’d have to perform to make it happen? What function(s) would you want the character to perform in the convention: panel, lecture, Q&A, what? (No private recreation.)

5. In regard to the infamous “unattended drink” incident, did no one ever seriously consider the possibility (which honestly didn’t occur to me until weeks afterward) that the guy who was hanging around you through most of the evening just might have been a likely suspect?
