GenCon Plans

(xposted from Tumblr)Last year, we went to GenCon and I spent the majority of the convention in our hotel room, writing. Now, I had a good time, but it wasn't really a convention experience. Or it didn't feel like one. And then I came home and felt worse, not only because a lot of what was written got dropped pretty much immediately, but also because it sunk in how much I missed. If I had it to do again, I would've just separated myself for those days and thrown myself into GenCon.

So this year, that's what I'm doing. I don't care if I'm going to be on my own for a while, I'm signing up for all the seminars. I'm going to sit and listen to people talk about games and writing, and then I'm going to play some stuff, maybe watch a movie or two... take the kid to the masquerade ball. I plan on having a good time and making up for last year. I just added a bunch of stuff to my schedule, and a whole lot of other stuff to my wishlist for later review (and/or purchase). I think I might even enter a board game tournament. *nods*

Is anyone out there going to GENCON?! If you're going, I'd love to meet some people somewhere. Maybe play a game or two. XD

We're going again! As always. Lou's made up the schedule, since I hate not having a book, so I don't know what our free time is like. But we get in on Wednesday and are getting our stuff at Will Call and then going to the RAM for food. We don't leave until the following Monday!

I'd love to go but doubt it. Store is bleeding the life out of me. :(

But yay for deciding to enjoy the con!

As for your experience last year, having gone to a con with someone who spent 90% of it glued to the phone/computer/aim to talk to their 'shiny new SO' was frustrating. Especially when we only got to see each other once a year at said convention. :\ It soured our friendship and general con-going experiences for future cons.

Except BlizzCon... my bro and I go to that and have a blast every time!
