Kansas! Day One

I am in scenic Lawrence, Kansas, for the Science Fiction Writers Workshop put on by the Center for the Study of Science Fiction. This is primarily a workshop for short stories. James Gunn leads the workshop. There is a concurrent workshop being run for SF novelists run by Kij Johnson. Because I'm not well versed in SF lore, I had not heard of either of these people. But as their Wikipedia articles illustrate, they're kind of a big deal.

Because a few friends have been curious about the experience, I'm blogging about it. Today mostly consisted of just getting here.
