Proposal writing

I may be fidgeting, but at least I have the word count I need for my K'zoo proposal (finally). Thing is, the more I look at it, the more I think maybe it fits the CFP for the CMS at U of T conference more than the Avista session.

My proposal doesn't hit as many of the keywords in the session as I'd like. Part of my inferiority complex on this particular point is that I felt it important that I apply to give a paper on a subject related to my dissertation. For the past year or so I've been coasting in a way, giving conference papers on the subject I already know lots about, my MA thesis. And AVISTA's CFP sounds like it might suit my MA thesis material a bit better than my current material. Yes, it definitely, undoubtedly covers and art and technology, but is there anything remotely scientific about it? Oh well. Hopefully if they don't go with it, I can at least make it into a General Session.
