And the adventures of an introvert finding her tribe.
Realm Makers 2015 was amazing!
At first, I wasn’t sure what to do with myself. Socially awkward, shy, might have put my foot in my mouth a time or two. AND I didn’t have two kiddos chase around and provide a buffer between me and the outside world. But I managed!
It was so awesome to finally connect with so many people who I’ve only met online. And to meet many more who share the same love for speculative fiction. The classes and the keynote speaker’s messages were all spot on for me. No burning bushes, but quiet confirmation and encouragement. Seeds were planted, and I am excited to see how they will grow in the months and years to come. I hope to be able to go to Realm Makers 2016. We shall see.
And then there were costumes! From Dark Matter to fairies to Star Wars to Sherlock to Harry Potter. I didn’t take many pictures. I was so in the moment that it slipped my mind.
As you can see, I went as Hermione Granger, complete with chocolate frogs, a time-turner, a few special potions, and an awesome scarf a friend made for me. 🙂
Sigh. Now time to get back to reality. The house has been turned inside out and upside down with hubby’s latest building project. I’ve got a list the size of Mount Kilimanjaro, and there’s only one week before school starts!! Ack! Doing my best not to hyperventilate.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
