ConnectiCon at a Distance!
This weekend would have been ConnectiCon, the convention that’s dearest to my heart. I’ve spoken at length about ConnectiCon for years, from its heart and character, to the strong relationships I’ve built in my life and career because of it. ConnectiCon is the hands-down highlight of my convention year, but like all other conventions in 2020 this one has been canceled thanks to COVID-19.
I’m sad but not surprised there’s no ConnectiCon this year. With the announcement of DragonCon going a similar route in August/September, this officially makes every single show we were scheduled to attend being canceled. It’s the smart and safe choice, but it makes me no less saddened.
However! If you’re one of the ConnectiCon faithful and/or still want to see some of its content, ConnectiCon@Home is happening this Saturday! Not only will they be showing recorded version of my Writing Unique Heroes & Memorable Villains talk, I’ll also be streaming a live AMA on Twitch about the Cosplay Death Match that night! Submit your questions through the website and I’ll be happy to answer them live!
2020 has been a heartbreaking year for conventions. I miss everyone so much. This would have been the tenth(!) consecutive Death Match. While I’m eager to see everyone again, I want to do it right and under the safest of conditions.
Be safe. Take care. Wear your mask. Hopefully we can all see each other again soon.
