The second day of this years Wizard World Chicago was much more busy and crowded than the first. Things were not helped by the dual floor set up and the fact that the escalators ceased to function at times.
The first panel I attended was called Pitfalls of Writing. The best advice offered on becoming a professional writer was ‘don’t romanticize it’. Writing is a profession and has mechanics to it like any other that you must follow. The panel guests shared stories about how they were motivated by real life financial issues to get past any romantic notions towards writing and treat it more like a job which is one of the best things you can do for yourself if you want to move towards any success with it.
Later that evening I attended the Adult Costume Contest but I will be talking more about that in a later post. For now lets look at more cosplay pictures.
