Finding Your Tribe: The Fun of Cons

All work and no play turns writers into robots - and not in a good way. You need to get out and have some fun now and then. You also need to network with other people of a like mind. So why not combine the two and find a convention that appeals to the secret fandoms (or not-so-secret fandoms) of your brilliant mind? Cons are the perfect way to recharge that writing brain of yours.

Why Pins Make Your Life Better

Not everyone's big on carrying around glaring signs of individuality. But you'd still like to break out of your shell and tuck pieces of yourself SOMEWHERE. When you feel overwhelmed by life, you need to find something to turn to to express your personal message. And Pins do the trick perfectly. Yes, pins - those little bits of colorful metal you can attach - well, anywhere.
