Welp, looks like I’m not going to Comic-Con this year. My fault – I had a Professional registration, but received my renewal email when I was working to get a novel to the publisher and read the REGISTRATION DUE email as NOT DUE. Found out like the day after the professional registration closed. And then, even though I was reading the Toucan blog that announces such things, I was so busy working on another project that I missed Attendee Preregistration. And, as of now, even though I’m in line … it’s sold out:
That happened while I was typing the above paragraph. At this point, three of the five days are sold out. My favorite night, preview night, sold out first:
Comic-Con is awesome and overwhelming. I’d wondered if I would go back this year, but if I was not to go back, I’d prefer not to go back, like, on purpose, not through oversight, accident and bad luck. I look forward to going again next year. But perhaps I should focus less on going like a fan and more on doing the work that will get me invited there as a guest.
As my wife would say, focusing on making my next creative project spectacular.

O.M.G. While TYPING that …
Yeah, this ain’t Cave Johnson, but we’re done here.
