“It’s so nice to finally meet you in real life!”
There are a thousand thinkpieces out there about how to cure the internet and the problem of being very online; the solution has always been conventions.
Being at a convention is a special kind of feeling at home.
The amount of kindness and inclusivity you encounter is overwhelming at times, in the best possible way.
I can’t give enough thanks to Twin Cities Con for putting on such a magnificent second-year show; the only people I am more thankful for are the those who stopped by and wasted their time with me.
Before this weekend, I had never done a panel as a writer, and on Saturday, I did two panels with a cast of brilliant writers and audience members. It was an absolutely magical experience.
I could not even begin to tag the hundreds of folks who made this weekend so surreal. By the whirlwind nature of a con, I broke so many promises of connecting to people but I promise, again, to connect to you soon.
Just know I appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart.
All my love, and see you next year. (I already got a table with my name on it.)
