JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)

On to day three, the last day of JordanCon. ­čśŽ I let myself sleep a little bit late again, because I really needed it, and between that and packing (checkout was at noon), I didn’t make it down until around 11:30. Seeing as that was in the middle of a panel block, and there wasn’t…

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 2)

On to day 2! (Otherwise known as the longest day of the con.) I managed to get about 5 hours sleep, and after eating made it down sometime around 11. I actually can’t recall if I made it to the first writing panel of the day, but I definitely made it to the second, which…

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 1)

On to day 2. (Also here I’d like to thank the creators of the JordanCon app, which makes looking back at the panel details much easier, in addition to being useful during the convention.) Surprisingly, I got downstairs relatively on time on the Saturday of the convention this year; not having to wait long to…

JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 1)

This past weekend (at least as of when I started writing this post) I attended JordanCon 6 (also known as Asha’Con). This was my fourth time attending, and it really has become a yearly highlight. I wouldn’t have subtitled last year’s recap “Why you should come┬ánext year” if I didn’t feel that it was worthwhile–though…

Death in Fiction: A Discussion on the Killing Off of Characters (Spoilers for the Divergent Series, and Others)

(Note: This posts also contains some spoilers for the┬áHarry Potter┬áseries, the┬áHunger Games┬áseries, the┬áSong of Ice and Fire┬áseries,┬áand the┬áWheel of Time Series. This post is about death, and most fiction has it.) And now, finally, we’re reaching the end of my┬áDivergent-centric posts, which is just as well, as I’d rather dwell on the great books I’ve…
