Over Memorial Day weekend, I attended a Harry Potter convention called Misti-Con. It was my first ever con and I had no idea what to expect going into it. I packed up all my HP costumes and memorabilia with the excited hope of meeting like minded obsessed fans as myself. I was not disappointed.
I loved every minute of the con. The friends I made were wonderfully kooky like me and all talk of Harry Potter was accepted (unlike real-life sometimes). But what made this con so great for me, was the feeling of inspiration I felt afterwards. Because I felt so accepted, I felt motivated to continue down the path of being me and an aspiring writer. It was as if Misti-Con approved of my dreams and now I can go forth and write. It's weird, I know, but it worked. Something, all you need is to feel inspiration, no matter where it comes from.
We all have things we enjoy, thing we're passionate or obsessed about. I say embrace them and see if you can find others like yourself. Who know, they might just inspire you at a time where you feel unmotivated.
There is a joy in conventions, especially when it's the right convention. Misti-Con was the best place for me to start and I can't wait for 2017. Who will join me?
