So, Mary Oliver died on More Joy Day and I lost my equilibrium for a surprising amount of time because of it (not necessarily her death in particular, just it was the ignition of a lot of things that had been weighing on me). Then I got knee-deep writing this long Z Nation fic I just finished
and I'm in the middle of a big life change now but I think of you all, as usual, very frequently. I also should tell you that FanWorks Con is happening, in case you haven't heard of it, and it's gonna be great. This con celebrates all forms of fannish endeavor: fic, vids, fanart, podfic, arts like knitting or papercraft, and the people who make and consume these things. I will be there! I'm actually the volunteer coordinator so when you sign up you could also come help me help the con run more smoothly. :)
It will be August 15-18 in Detroit! You can register and check out more info here
Also there's an auction:
The first annual FanWorks Con Auction
FanWorks is a new annual convention for anyone who loves fan creations such as fanfic, podfic, vids, art, cosplay, crafts, and much more. Learn more about the FanWorks convention here
All proceeds from the auction will help the con purchase A/V equipment, upgrade things like food & beverage offerings, con decor, and the dance floor, and expand the con suite with more space, snacks, and games.
Creator sign-ups are closed but the auction opens tomorrow, April 10! You can also follow fanworks
for more updates and bidding information once the time comes! Or, you can always do both.
Either click the banner or right here
to be taken to the FanWorks Con Auction's informational post.
So I hope to post again BEFORE the con but in case I don't: I hope I see you there!! :D
