Safe at DragonCon

 After almost 11 hours on the road, we have arrived at Nerdigras. My body aches for sleep, but the gallons of caffeine I’ve pumped into my body cries NO!
Tuesday night I had the normal Pre-Con excitement jitters, so maybe logged about 4 hours of sleep.
I can’t sleep in the car at all. While Natile took half the driving, I gave her the first half so she wouldn’t have to deal with morning rush hour traffic in Atlanta. It took two five hour energies and three big doses of iced caramel mocha, but I stayed awake.
We checked in and got to our room by 7am. I tried to run off some of the jitters by filling the cooler with ice and arranging the room. But while we both lay down for naps, the muscles in my legs continues to jump and tingle.

It’s now 9am, and I’ve given up trying. No matter. Tonight I shall sleep the sleep of the dead. For now I may go wander the halls and revel in the still-echoing halls, the calm before the storm, while my roommates slumber.
Lots to do today. Sign up for gaming (Settlers of Catan tournament), set up art show panels, get badges, meet with friends. Guess I’ll go people watch for now!

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
