Yes, I will be reveling and steeping myself in the pop culture and geekery of the San Diego Comic-Con. I made it there once before, for an hour or two on a family vacation to San Diego. But this will be the full-blown experience, and if I had a bucket list, this would be an item near the top.
I will also be learning as much as I can there about the writer craft. There is such a large overlap between the writing of comics, TV, film and literary writers (and many individuals that cross those lines repeatedly) that the opportunities for learning, meeting, greeting and gaping are not to be discounted on the writerly front.
And I will get a chance to see a lot of friends that I usually don’t get to spend much time with. Balancing educational writer stuff, fanboy geekness and spending with people who actually know my name could be a struggle. It should be a lot of fun.
