Westercon Recap & Summer Plans

Westercon happened this last weekend and while I was incredibly nervous about going – were we going to at least break even… was there going to be enough alcohol… – it ended up being a fantastic event. There wasn’t huge numbers or anything but that turned out to be a good thing. We made enough in tips to break even for the weekend (barely, actually but those annoyances are for someone else to handle, thank god) and the staff was able to relax and actually enjoy the party. That never happens. 

Our sleeping room actually connected to the party room so we had more party stuff happening in there than we did the actual suite (omg it was such a mess) but I didn’t mind. I put up a ‘Private Room’ sign and surprisingly everyone respected it (even the people for whom the sign was not meant) and the girls and I (plus K and even B1 and B2 for a bit) danced the night away both Friday and Saturday. It was great. I haven’t had that much fun at a convention in… god, I don’t even know in how long. 

So the 2012 con season for Biohazard Party is over. Finally. Now we can concentrate on Rusty in January and getting ready for next year. 

In the meantime, there are summer plans ahead and work yet to be done. I’m still working on my novel manuscript and have added a few short stories to the mix that have a end-of-September deadline. It feels so good to have stuff to do that isn’t just me screwing around on the computer for my own amusement. 

Time to start acting like a real author now.
