I’ll be heading to GenCon in a couple days for my first timer there and as an Industry Insider Featured Presenter! I’ll be on a few panels and the rest of the time I’ll be wandering around the show floor, hitting up free play games and also decompressing a lot cause it looks like there will be a lot of people for the 50th year. O__O
A huge, huge thanks to F. Wesley Schneider for running a fundraising campaign to help me get to GenCon this year. Thank you to everyone who donated, boosted and shared the link!
As always, a reminder for interacting with me at conventions, especially if we’ve never met before!
A Guide to Interacting with me at Conventions & Events
Have one handy guide to interacting with me at conventions, totally 110% free of charge.
Overall I am pretty friendly but I do not like strangers touching me, especially my hair. If you try to pet my hair or touch my locs without express permission or invitation it will not end well for you. So just don’t, especially if you like having fingers.
Revision: Due to the incident (being filmed w/o my consent with intent to intimidate) at PAX East 2016, I am even more twitchy about interaction with people I don’t know at conventions. I’ve also just come off a three day HUGE convention so I’m going to be even more introverted than usual when I’m not on panels, it’s not you.
If we are twitter/tumblr/Online friends but have not met offline, feel free to say hello and if you ask first I’ll likely give you a hug/want a hug. I’m actually quiet and introverted in real life so if you see me fleeing for a quiet space, it’s not you I am just feeling overwhelmed and need some quiet time. I have a terrible memory so if we have met just once or twice at previous events I might not remember you immediately, please don’t be offended.
I like to take photos, but I will always ask permission before taking them and again before posting them on tumblr, twitter, Instagram, flickr etc. I don’t mind being in photos, but ask me first before posting them online.
