San Japan is this weekend, and I’m really not sure what I’m going to do. Granted, I know what I have to do, and that’s assist with two panels for originalgamer.com as well as host my own “How To Publish E-Books” panel, but outside of ‘working’ at those panels, I don’t have anything planned.
I’ve joked in the past about how one either works at a convention or has fun, but can’t do both. Its been so long since I’ve had significant free time at San Japan that I’m not sure I remember how to have fun there. I don’t cosplay, I don’t care much about the guests (sorry) or the dances or the cosplay contest or watch many of the popular shows, which doesn’t really leave much left to do.
Thus, I’ll probably spend most of San Japan hanging out with friends. I know people that help out with the event, sell in the dealer room or artists area, wear costumes, or, much like myself, just happen to be there.
And truthfully, how much more fun do I need than that?
