So other than stalking Richard Dean Anderson and Brandon Sanderson, where will I be this weekend at Dragon*Con? Excellent question!
I love Dragon*Con but not just for the big panels. A lot of fun happens in the small fan panels. Below is my rough draft of my schedule, which is subject to change at a moment's notice at any moment when actually at the con. :)
Note: the great thing about Friday is that it's fairly low attendance, especially in the morning. So any big panels on Friday are ones you should go to and will probably get good seats in them. Or at least be in the same room.
|10:00 am||The Torchwood Panel||Hyatt Centenial I-III|
|11:00 am||The Richard Dean Anderson Panel Queue||Outside of the Marriott Atrium Ballroom|
|1:00 pm||The Richard Dean Anderson Panel||Marriott Atrium Ballroom|
|2:30 pm||The Lt. Uhura Panel||Sheraton Grand Ballroom A-F|
|4:00 pm||The Firefly Panel||Westin Peachtree Ballroom A-F|
|5:30 pm||Looney Theories (WoT)||Westin Roswell 1-2|
|8:30 pm||Writer's Track/Gods and Goddesses|
YA Track/Beyond Hunger Games
|Hyatt Embassy D-F|
And I will probably go to bed early on Friday, because Saturday is going to be a crazy long day!
Note: This is hands down the most crowded day of the con.

Monday is my free day, when I do whatever whim enters into my head. Like sleeping in, lunch with my local friends, and mostly wandering the dealer's rooms. So I have no planned events, but I will be there all day.
If you're going to Dragon*Con, are there any big panels/events that you are looking forward to?
