Yesterday I went to BookCon and had a blast. I learned from last year to bring a carry-on suitcase and to be prepared to stand. Luckily I was granted a medical badge and was able to enter the conference 10 minutes before the general public. I still did a lot of standing but at least I paced myself and thanks to my friend, she got me access to chairs.
Also learned from last year, is to make a strategic plan of what we wanted to see and with careful planning, we manage to see and do all the things that we wanted to do and more. I saw a couple of my author friends and it was good to see them and chat for a little while. Then it was going here, there and everyone and even a break for a meal before the energy was sapped right out of me. The day was long as we got there around 8:30 and left after 5pm and then it was time to head for home. I’ll be back next year with an even better game plan.
