For some reason or another, when I decided to go to WFC (World Fantasy Con, in case you're wondering) I decided I'd forgo flying and drive to Ohio.
Yup. That's a 7+ hour drive. What the heck was I thinking?
Seriously, do you know? Because I don't.
The good news though is that I made it here in one piece*, and I got to stop to hang out with Alexandra Shostak (and visit a spooktakular haunted insane asylum**) along the way.
AND, the drive really wasn't that bad because look at the pretty scenery*** I had to keep my eyes happy along the way!
I also spent hours upon hours creating characters for the story I'm going to write after my WIP is finished--and I worked out some of the kinks in my current WIP. I virtually road-tripped (on the phone) with Cristin Terrill, because she was driving to Texas, so we shared in the pain of long drives... All in all, it was a pretty good time!****
Today I'm waiting for my roommates to get here (Carolina Valdez Miller & Karen Hooper) and, um, without giving too much away, I'm just gonna say we're totally gonna have one of the funnest***** rooms ever!******
So my weekend is set here in Ohio. What are you up to? Any big plans?
*If you've ever driven with me, you'll understand why this is an amazing accomplishment.
**More on the asylum later! I have fun pics with Alexandra, but I'm wearing an outfit I plan to wear at WFC and didn't want anyone to see because what if I meet someone at the con and they looked at my blog and think I'm a dork for rewearing an outfit or something... Crap, I just kinda gave it away anyway, didn't I? Dang it.
***Clearly I'm not a professional "from a moving car" photographer, but still. You get the drift :)
****Plus, I may or may not have entertained myself by jamming out and singing at the top of my lungs to 80s songs. I also may or may not have made videos, which you may or may not be allowed to see at some point in the future...
*****Yeah, yeah. You say most fun, I say funnest. Check it: http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/is-funnest-a-word.aspx
******Picture proof to come later ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
