Con Season Hiatus

0

The Roundtable Podcast will be taking a short hiatus so I can survive convention season with my sanity intact.

“Oh Dave… that ship sailed long ago.”

Shut up.

One COULD argue that signing up for both GenCon AND Mid-America Con II (where WorldCon will be taking place) is actually a sign of impending senility. But hey, if you’re gonna nerd… nerd hard. And that’s what I’m gonna be doing.

I’ll be doing a lot of broadcasting from GenCon and WorldCon via Periscope for The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Onder Media Group (OMG)(best initials EVER!). I’ll be documenting both cons and exploring the idea of “The Modern Storyteller”… what skills do they need, what resources are at their disposal, what kind of stories do they tell (and why)? It feels like the storytelling experience is changing (which is inevitable and not a bad thing) and I want to find out how, why, and where it may be leading us.

If you want to check out the feed, follow Onder Librum on Twitter, track the Onder Librum Facebook page, and check out the site. Given the constellation of stellar luminaries in attendance at both events, I expect it’ll be an intriguing and insightful journey.

And a little exhausting.

Truth be told, LIFE has been a little exhausting recently. I’ve been confronted by my limits a lot in recent months and I’ve gotten to know them fairly well.

So… hiatus.Just until September when we’ll return with, more brainstorming goodness and a special return Guest Host from the Roundtable’s distant past!

In the meantime, keep looking for the “WOW”, stay frothy, and GO WRITE!
