It’s been over a week since I got home from DragonCon. As always, the convention was a lot of fun. I hung out with a lot of good people, made some new friends, and learned a few new tricks. This year, the convention was very crowded. It got to the point where I was uncomfortable walking around one of the host hotels. Instead, I spent time at events that didn’t draw a lot of people and had a good time. If I go to DragonCon next year, I’ll be doing that again if I feel the need to get away from the crowds.
The downside to all of this is the way I always feel afterwards. DragonCon is one of those events where I feel like I need a vacation to recover from my vacation. This year was no exception. When I got home, I had a hard time getting back to work. Before I knew it, September 11th had rolled around. As a New Yorker and someone who was in the city when the towers went down, that day holds special signifigance for me. I won’t bore you with what I was doing at the time or delve into my memories of that day. It’s all one big jumbled mess that I’m still trying to sort through.
Days later, I finally have my head on straight enough to get back to writing. I’m still aiming to release a new book this month but I still haven”t found a cover for the book or scheduled time with my editor. Also, I’m still in physical therapy for my shoulder so I’ve been limiting my time online.
This weekend, I’m going to be busy writing and setting stuff up then it will be time to gear up for New York Comic Con and Super Megafest. Next week, we’ll return to my usual brand of madness. Until then, take care and stay classy.
