    When money is extremely tight barconning can be an option -- you just go to the bar to meet attending writers, and don't go to the event itself. The convention hotel bar is usually open to the public. It's not a route people rush to recommend because it doesn't support the event, but in times of financial hardship it's totally valid.

    I used to live in Somerset, in the village of Martock, but I'm back in London now, enjoying all the things a big city has to offer - art exhibitions, theatre, opera, concerts, workshops etc.

    Ah, I've driven on the A303 past Martock many times...

    I'm currently living in North Shropshire, a place so stuffed with Tory farmers it's been a safe seat for them since 1835.

    Grrrrrrrr...

    Does it mean 'No Horses' ?

    I also didnt' realise there was a UK thread. I guess I don't think of myself as international.

    I'm properly new here (2nd ever post...) and stumbled across this thread whilst looking for every conceivable thing of interest to me... Haven't read all 20-odd pages but it seems to be quite South-heavy - any other Northerners? Specifically, any other Mancs? More specifically, any other Salfordians? Don't worry, I won't get more specific than that...
