As part of my marketing plan, I hope to participate in science-fiction conventions. I attended several when I was in high school. Oh, my goodness, what fun they are! I had a blast! I got to meet the likes of Patrick Stewart, George Takei, James Doohan, Jonathan Frakes...and even got to hear DeForest Kelley speak. I have some pretty awesome sci-fi memories.
Tonight, I Googled sci-fi conventions and found quite a list! Even more exciting, I found a local gathering that is happening within the next few weeks. I'd never heard of the sponsoring group, but I am certain they are kindred spirits, as Anne Shirley would say. (Bonus points if you know who Anne Shirley is. If not, Google!) I really hope I get to take part in this gathering! That would be way too cool!
And with the listings I found, I realized how very many people there must be out there who appreciate some form of sci-fi. I know I've touched on this before, but what is it that is so attractive about the genre? To me, it's the possibilities. Endless permutations and combinations (thank you, Marty Math! - Google that, too!) that open up fantastical worlds. I love it!
I'm excited about the opportunities out there. I hope I'll get to meet you one day at one of these conventions. In the meantime, though, I'd love to hear about your sci-fi convention experience. Or what you love about sci-fi! Shoot an email my way, or leave a comment here.
