This Saturday was the first all-staff Dragon*Con 2007 meeting, whereupon I discovered that I'm losing lord_darkseid from my Daily Dragon staff. Sigh. So now I need a new reporter.
I was so tired, the meeting was something of a blur, but it was good seeing folks like dire_epiphany, radjacee, arkhamrefugee, and bevlovesbooks. Of note, the Cruxshadows were having a concert at the Masquerade that night and offered to let D*C directors in gratis, but I was so logy, I just didn't have it in me to go dancing. Sad, ain't it? I'm feeling old.
Hey, I'm always delighted to pimp my work! It's just such a rare occurrence to have someone come up and say "hey, I wanna read your stuff" that I find myself caught off guard when it happens. Good thing I had the foresight to stick up a website . . .
"And hey, congrats on being able to say 'no'"
Hee! More like I didn't have any other choice.
Me? Famous? Nah. Famous is being a household name. Most of the folks in my subdivision would go "Eugie, who?" if I showed up on their doorstep. But it's nice to think that a few folks who I don't know on a first name basis might think I can string a pair of sentences together decently, and also that I might be making a bitty bit of a name for myself in the industry.
B says we will be there, even if they don't let him in Artist Alley (for the first time, we think, since 1999). They are making him jury although he has never had to do so before. I told him JUST DO IT! After all, he's won best fantasy jewelry in show twice before (once amateur and once pro); how could they ban him now?
