Recently I found out that I had been approved for a Phoenix comicon media pass. Now the prospect of actually going to the Comicon as a journalist is quite exciting. I however am also a little nervous because I don't feel entitled to any journalistic courtesies since my writing sucks.
In order to get approved for a media pass I had to submit samples of my writing and list the web websites I blog on along with what methods I would be using to promote this year's Phoenix Comicon. After I submitted my media pass application I received a generic auto responder message saying my application will be reviewed within the next 24 to 48 hours. I received a response congratulating me on my approval less than 24 hours after I submitted my application.
Now comes the hard part. I am going to have to try to find enough time to actually cover the comic con in a way that it deserves to be covered. So that means that I'm probably going to have to find a babysitter for my kids since my wife will be working three of the four days that the comic con will be here in Phoenix. I also have possibly lined up a couple interviews that I may be able conduct at the con.If by some miriclef I am able to do these interviews I really hope I don't end up embarrassing myself.
