FCBD was a BLAST


I was at the Source for the 2nd consecutive year for FCBD and it was a blast! While I was initially frustrated about missing my new book from Comicpress(!), it was nice to meet with local creators like Otis Frampton, Anthony Hary and Willis Nance. I also met a few new people who are now on my facebook and had some interesting conversations.

One of the best moments of the day was when I was asked by a 3rd grade teacher if I would be willing to discuss being a writer to his students. I told him of course! It meant a lot to me and I hope it happens because I started becoming a writer in 3rd grade after winning a poetry contest. After that, I began writing short stories and lyrics, which led to tele/screenplays and comics.

Other than that, I did meet some other cool people, got told that I should become a pro wrestler, which would be awesome and got to see Iron Man 3 afterwards for my friends birthday. Although exhausting, it was an amazing experience that I would not change for anything.

Now I have a few weeks to prep for Spring Con, then a little more time to prep for Texas Comicon. Times are busy, now back to writing for me.
