Writers are diverse creatures by nature (am I right?). So naturally we all have some hobbies that extend past the crafty worlds we pen. I'm curious to see if anyone else has attended any kind of convention or event over the years. Sadly, being a resident of Southern California (the Mecca of convention locations), I have only attended 2 conventions in my lifetime. Anime Expo 2004 and Blizzcon 2009. The former was kind of a dark experience while the latter earned me a bit of fame on YouTube (go figure). So, what conventions have you guys attended? Do you go consistently? Any fun stories to share?
