Okay, so Sunday I found out about this online con, and I’m freaking out a little bit because I know it’s going to be awesome.
I need to back up a little bit.
Life, the Universe and Everything Symposium is a convention for writers, artists, gamers, and filmmakers–storytellers of any type. And this year, due to Ye Olde Plague, it’s all online.
(quick moment of gratitude to Writers of the Future, GalaxyPress, and staff for the friendly note about it sent to all contest entrants. They are the best)
So a con I would never get to visit because it’s on the other side of the world, I now have a ticket to. And I can’t stop the giddy little girl voice in the back of my head from jumping up and down and screaming because it’s the first con of any type I’ve gotten to attend since traveling with my mercenary buddies as Resident Fiddler last…March?
Oh, my lovely nerd culture, I have missed you.
Even better, there’s “Filking” every night of the con, which to the best of my understanding, is fantasy/sci-fi bard/campfire music, and I am so here for that it was worth the price of my ticket alone.
Sorry. I’m really excited.
Did I mention Jessica Day George is on the panels?
The only downside is that everything looks so awesome I’ve picked at least 3 different things I want to attend every session…and I still don’t have a working duplicator or time machine.
I have discovered too much awesome.
Considering I was going to spend the weekend working, I’m not going to complain too loudly.
Unless, you know, somebody actually has that time machine.
Wish me luck! Blog posts to come when it’s all said and sung!
