Readercon 23 was a blast. I had a fantastic time -- as usual. Readercon has been my favourite convention since I started attending with Readercon #2 in 1989(!)

Most of my panels were fun, but none more so than "Oblique Strategies for Authors". The idea is a riff on the Oblique Strategies card deck produced by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt back in the 1970's. Each Oblique Strategy card provides a cryptic directive —- such as “Use an old idea” or “Honour thy error as a hidden intention” —- intended to help an artist deal with a creative block or dilemma. You just draw a random card and do whatever it says to do; this may involve a convoluted interpretation of the often-cryptic message on the card.

Get really oblique -- behind the cut )
