My Adventure in Irving

on February 9, 2016

This past weekend I had the privilege to go to Irving, TX with several girls to see Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles Series.

It was quite a drive, but several fun stops along the way and some good company made it fun.

My sister introduced me to this futuristic fairy tale series several months ago and I got hooked. So even though I decided not to dress up in a cosplay outfit, I did enjoy the excitement of the fans and all of the cool activities they had set up.

My sister even got interviewed on TV with her friends and was able to make friends with people all over Texas who also enjoy the series.

I particularly liked seeing my sister give several pieces of a puzzle to Marissa from fans all over the world. By the end of the tour she will have all the pieces to make the picture collage.

I even got a photo with Marissa.

But one thing Marissa said while she was speaking that stuck out to me, was her advice to young authors. My ears perked up, since that’s what I consider myself. She said to enjoy the writing process and where you’re at, at this moment. And I could see what she meant. She was at the library signing for hours, we left at 6:30 pm and there were still about a hundred people who wanted books signed. I can hardly imagine what it would be like to have to fly from one event to the next and talk with so many people. I’m sure it’s fun, but also exhausting. And I’m glad that for now I can just enjoy where I’m at in my writing career, and keep working on my own projects and encouraging others in their own.

Well I hope you enjoyed the pictures and if you haven’t had a chance to read Marissa Meyer’s work, I highly recommend it.
