The Inspiration Fairy

This last weekend I attended Orycon 39 with a bunch of very fine people. I had a great time, and I got to meet a lot of terrific people and visit with friends I hadn’t seen in forever. There’s never enough time, but I was glad to grab what I could. While there were a few problems (first time in this venue), overall it was really fun and I enjoyed myself. I will say I’ve never been in such a terrific green room, with a lot of healthy foods available throughout the day and into the evening. The art show was terrific, and the dealer room had a lot of variety, although it was sort of in a corner, which was unfortunate. I was delighted because I did a lot of walking and stairs and so got some exercise.

But my favorite thing was the little statue I got at the art show. There’s this little play written by Kelly McCullough that I love. It makes me laugh and I promise you will too.  Here’s the link. You need to go read it. Seriously. Go. I’ll wait.

Back?

Now for what I bought at the show. Read his chest:

 

This is MY inspiration fairy. He bears a strong resemblance to WC Fields and I adore him. He shall inspire and probably motivate. Discipline can go off to ballet class for gorillas now.

Do you like him?

  1. Great to see you at the con though we had little time to chat. I was always on the run and I think you were too.

    New venue always has its glitches. They’ll fix it next year. But I appreciated that there was so much SPACE. I never felt like there were 1600 people there.

    The authorfest at Powell’s City of Books (Beaverton branch) is a huge bonus too. Now to let my brain wind down and come to terms with the stillness I need to write.
