So it has been a few years since I last attended Dragon*Con. In that time, I have moved from Atlanta, attended lesser geek conferences (the experience left me wanting more), worked with an animation company that won best animated short-short at a Dragon*Con’s 2010 film fest, missed The Big Peach, moved back and anxiously awaited my next opportunity to join the other 62,000 people at the one if the biggest multi-genre geek conventions in the world.
My first experience was wonderful and overwhelming. I patch-worked my way through the four hotels and happened upon a multitude of incredible and diverse lectures but I didn’t know what I was doing and it took me days to get it. The “The Con” has grown since.
