Sometimes, in pursuit of our goals, we can fall into fabulous mishaps.
Take, for example, my goal to get 12 comics related rejections this year. When I saw that the Small Press Expo (SPX) was open for the lottery, I figured I’d throw my hat into the ring. An easy rejection and one that I didn’t need to think about too much.
Until I got a half-table in the lottery.
So, here we are. It’ll be my fourth ever con, my first really big one, and my first all-weekend long tabling experience. I’m starting to rethink if I’ll want to table at MICE in October.
I didn’t want much time to think about it and chicken out. On Sunday, I paid for my half-table. Yesterday, I booked my hotel room. Today, I put in for time off at work. I’m doing it. I’m going.
SPX is in six months. I’m incredibly excited, nervous, and trying to keep the imposter syndrome at bay.
