A few years ago, I started attending
Science Fiction (but then again, some people like to call it Speculative Fiction SF conventions.
The first one I attended was my local ICON in Cedar Rapids, but the next year, wanting to try out a few more, I attended DemiCon. I found DemiCon to be a blast. This year, I am now attending my third, and I’ve decided to be a panelist.
I am usually sitting at the back of the room, thinking people don’t want to hear what I have to say. However, during the cons I attended last year, I sat in on a couple panels where I thought I could have been a good contributor, so I decided it was time to pull the trigger.
I’m crossing my fingers and hoping I’ll do a good job.
