Supernova and Benefits of Journaling

Today I'm over at the Insecure Writer's Support Group talking about the 7 Benefits of Journal Writing. Please pop on over and check it out.

In the meanwhile, I had to share my experience of Supernova, an awesome comic book convention. It was held at the Exhibition Centre at South Brisbane, with wonderful wonderful air conditioning. We checked out the cool merchandise.

I bumped into a blogger friend and awesome MG writer, Charmaine Clancy. Read her books. They are great!

Went to the panel discussing a new indie scifi film in development, Space/Time. Gotta love time travel stories! Unfortunately we are going to have to wait until 2018 to see it! Rawr!

And we checked out the cosplay competitions. So much fun! And the amount of work everyone puts into their costumes is amazing.
So there you have it. My first jaunt out to explore and discover more of Brisbane since my move last week. Wow, has it only been a week? I'm still tripping over boxes, though.

What have you been up to lately? Are you a fan of comic book conventions? Do you write journals? Are you reading my debut devotional, Cling to God?

Don't forget to check out my article about journaling at the IWSG website!

  5. Sounds fun!

    And just stuck those boxes in a closet. You'll get to them some other time. Maybe. :)

    1. If I had the closet space, I would. The funny thing is that the majority of the boxes is books.

  7. I haven't read your book yet, Lynda. But I will once my tour is over and life is quiet, or sort of quiet again. Happy marketing, btw.

  9. I would love to go to a convention like that. There are lots of them in the States but it can be so expensive. I enjoyed your post on keeping journal.

    1. This one ran for three days but we only got a day pass which is a whole lot more affordable.

    1. You should go to one! It's an experience and a half.

  14. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed yourself and YAY for air conditioning! I've watched cosplay competitions on TV. I used to make costumes and dress up for medieval fairs. That's child play compared to the intricate and difficult costumes they make for cosplay. I hope you're all moved in soon! :)

  15. I've never been to a comic convention, although I've been to geological and literacy conventions. This definitely sounds like more fun! I love time travel stories! We're exploring places for a potential move ~ which finds me in Bullhead City, Arizona. Never expected to be visiting here! But it's an interesting community. Have a good one!

    1. Comic Cons are a whole lot more fun than geological and literacy cons, although they sound interesting in their own right.

  16. I've never been to a comic convention, but they sound like so much fun! It's great that you were able to meet up with a fellow blogger and author, and I'm glad you're landing on your feet in Brisbane!

  19. What fun! It looks to me like you've got a ton of fun right out you door, just waiting to be explored. I'd still be tripping over boxes too in favor of playing. ;)

  20. I used to read comics a long time again, but I never thought about attending a convention. Probably aren't too many up here in Michigan anyway.
