WWC 2017 Post Mortem

From the tone I’ve struck here, you might think that this is not a good festival. You’re wrong. It’s perfectly fine...but after five years of doing the same thing over and over, I see through the cracks and I’m left feeling bitter.

Back from yet another con. Didn't I just write one of these? It's that time of year where all the cons are happening at once. If only this book were a time book and then I could be everywhere at once.

Usually I come back from a convention rejuvenated or filled with creative energy, and although I have some of that, I'm mostly just filled with the overwhelming anxious sense of duty.

Hal-Con 2014 Post-Mortem

With every con I learn something new. Often lots of things. I always come back rejuvenated. It's not easy to keep the same level of discipline about a creative work, but going to conventions really makes me feel like what I'm doing matters.
