Anyone ever think of putting together a con?

    Kess I recently (as in yesterday) found out I'm going to be heading to Kenya soon, and don't know what my travel schedule will be like after that or when I'll be coming back to this part of this world. I'll get in contact with you if things become clearer. I kind of wish my life was less chaotic.

    Honestly, with the number of prolific serial writers along the east coast, especially Brisbane, it would be a great place for a con. I would highly suggest tying it in with Pax australia, perhaps? make it right before or right after, might get some people able to commute from one to the other.

    Ah, yes...and so we form the secret organization, W.O.R.D.: World Organization wRiters of Doom

    It could use some work.

    Hail W.O.R.D.! The pen is mightier than the sword!

    PG, I tried to start up Collected Arizona Web comic artists and writers, or CAW CAW , with a raven for a mascot.

    it was pointed out it could also be said caca.

    Taulsn - Kenya! Where the lions and tigers are?
    Well, I'll try to keep people here up-to-date with stuff. Maybe we'll have something vaguely organised and sorted by the time you're back in this part of the world. ;)

    Alexander - oh, good idea! Looks like PAX Aus is at the end of October (approximately the worst time of the year for me, as I'm getting into MLing for NaNo then), but doing something right before could work fine. In Melbourne - I don't know that city, but I have some contacts/friends there that could help out. That's around the time of GenreCon, too.

    W.O.R.D. up!

    Kess, I thought it was in Sydney? Also, glad I wasnt the only one who instantly thought of that song when Kenya was mentioned.

    As for Word Up.... are you familiar with Word Girl?

    I looked up PAX Aus, and it says it's in Melbourne this year. Maybe it's one of those cons that moves around?

    And no, I'm not! Though from a quick Google search, she looks kinda awesome.

    The only reason to be familiar with Word Girl is if you have kids. It's for younger children. That said, there are some children's shows that parents suffer through. Word Girl by contrast is genuinely funny at times.

    Enh, I knew about it before my kids watched it, but that was because I was looking up math and spelling based supers to work on one for my wife to use, wanted to make sure I didnt copy what was already there.
