Hello people of the internet! Oh how I've missed you....
Except that I haven't been gone...
I've just been lazy with the blog in favor of spending hours on Tumblr looking at "Ahsoka and Anakin" gifs under the pretense of "research" for a book.
Which is why, in true Shannen form, today's blog will come to you in words and assorted Star Wars gifs.
So I'll be attending a few conventions in the not too distant future and you can come see me on panels! Which means public humiliation and awkwardness in droves! Because, as previously stated, I get super hyper when around large groups of people (it's my mind's backwards way of coping with introvert overload) and I usually say dumb things.
You too can enjoy "Awkward Shannen Moments" live and in person in the following places!
I shall be attending LTUE this year for my very first time ever! Which, really, I don't know why it's taken me SO long to go to this conference since it's named after one of my favorite books! Or... you know... a line from one of my favorite books! Wait... isn't it? Did Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy not originate this?
I'm not sure how I managed to weasel my way into this convention when I haven't ever attended before, but don't tell anyone I'm an imposter or they'll kick me off my panels!
More than likely you'll be able to find me because I'll be the one who looks totally and absolutely LOST.
BUT, I'm just super excited to attend for my first time ever!
So look for me on my three panels: "Third Person POV", "Diversity in Gaming", and "Current Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Roundup".
Because why would I not want to talk about writing, gaming, AND TV? It's like my three favorite things ever!
So come and see me at LTUE next week! Either you'll learn something awesome or you'll watch me make a fool of myself, so either way, a good time will be had by all!
Comic Con Fan X!
Look at that! They gave me a fancy little graphic and everything! I feel so legit! I love you, SLC Comic Con.
Now, if you know me at all, you know that Comic Con is my favorite time of year (and it happens TWICE! How awesome is that?). I have an excuse to dress up in costumes and interact with people who love nerd stuff as much as me! It's basically the best thing ever!
And this year is no exception. I attempted to start my costume a few weeks ago. But that ended about like this.
There was an incident with a bad pattern and a broken bobbin and too-tight-tension on my sewing machine. Let's just say it wasn't pretty.
But never fear! Because I WILL be at Fan X this year, and I WILL be on panels, and I WILL be in costume! As Ahsoka Tano. And I'll hope to run into an Anakin so we can be sassy together and roll our eyes at everyone. Because that's what Anakin and Ahsoka do best.
But costume aside, I'll be at Fan X in March on panels AND at the Future House Publishing booth. So look for the orange girl with lightsabers when you're strolling the rows and stop by the Future House booth to find Pwned and a bunch of other awesome books by awesome authors! Plus Future House has a book bot... so it doesn't really get much better than that.
I'm not positive what panels I'll be on yet, but just know that this is happening. Public humiliation while dressed like Ahsoka Tano is going to happen, people!
So stay tuned for an awkward vlog of my time at Fan X, because that will happen, and come see me at LTUE and Comic Con Fan X! I promise to give you your fill of embarrassing moments on my behalf!
Until Next Time!
BONUS GIF (Even though it's Man From U.N.C.L.E. and not Star Wars. But it's SO cute).
