Making It Out Of My Hovel
There comes a time in every writer's life when it's time to walk away from the computer and head out into the world for some inspiration! For me, that time is now and in 24 hours I will be on my way to experiencing the fantasy, fun and intrigue that Dragon*Con has to offer!
Heading out to conventions, especially those that surround the literary world, will hopefully give me a chance to meet other writers and see what is happening in the world of fantasy/sci-fi/fanfic. It sure does help to know that not only are there other writers out there writing fiction, but that some of them are actually a success at it! I intend to leave Atlanta on Monday enlightened, encouraged, and bursting with new ideas and concepts.
If you aren't familiar with Dragon*Con I encourage you to check out their website at www.dragoncon.org and check out the immense width and breadth that this convention has to offer writers, painters, musicians and people who aren't creative but who enjoy other people's creativity.
True to my vow earlier this year, I'll be attending as Lara Croft one of the three days and I can't wait! If you're attending also, please send me a note on my facebook page and let me know. I'd love to meet you!
