So I realize I haven’t written in a while– probably because I feel like I’ve done absolutely nothing in the writing department. Which isn’t technically true. I’ve started storyboards with illustrator Conrad Teves on the next installment of HOLLOW’S PRIM no. 3. Making good progress– even wrote a moment that surprised Conrad! But I guess I’ve been more interested in my novel-writing and that has equated to nada.
For those curious, I’m currently working on IDENTITY, which is the second book to ILLUSION (check out my Science Fiction/ Fantasy page if you want to know more!). ILLUSION is complete and off on its merry way to (hopefully) get published. But IDENTITY seems to have slowed. Maybe I’ve just been busier. Yeah… I’m going to blame it on that. 😉
Regardless, I’ll try to get my writing juices flowing again. In the meantime, I’m preparing for CONvergence, which is 4th of July weekend. A comic book convention that deals with a lot of cosplay. I’ve never been and really looking forward to it!
Have any of you ever been to CONvergence? What did you think?
First thing I thought of was “Hmmm, what is the something 23 miles ahead!” Sign looks like Colorado, but except for the mountains, could be Iowa (Minnesota humor!?)
Well the hope is after 23 miles SOMETHING happens!! 🙂
I tried to write to you a short while ago but don’t think it went through. Anyway, I was asking you to tell me more about Convergence – as your time permits. Trust all is well with you.
Hey Joan! No, I didn’t receive anything from you. Make sure you address it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also try and send you something so we can connect! Great to hear from you!
CONvergence is not so much a comic book convention as a science fiction convention that also happens to have comic books as a subtheme. I went for several years until my recent financial problems. It’s four days with lots and lots of people, and many activities, from multiple discussion panel tracks through movie and anime rooms to themed room parties. (Be aware that some of the parties are alcohol-themed–you stand in line to get a fancy drink, then go somewhere to drink it.)
I am happy to say that Convergence has a good anti-harassment policy and in the past has had well-trained volunteers in that and other areas.
Thanks for all your great input on CONvergence! It really helps give me an idea of what’ll be in store during the convention.
