So, BJD Con in Atlanta does indeed still have tables left, but I’ve just about talked myself out of it due to anxiety.
I… have bigger problems with anxiety around people than I let on or even really talk about. I’m not sure if Rich would be able to attend and I just don’t think I could do it by myself. I’m fine as long as I have someone I trust with me, but yeah. Alone isn’t gonna be a thing I can do, even for a small-ish con.
Aww, don’t give up! Is there anyone you know that has a table, maybe you could be next to them? Or if you could find someone to split a table with?
I always get anxious getting ready for tables at cons, but as soon as I get there and get the table is set up it’s easy. It’s much calmer behind the table than being a regular attendee, and neighboring tables always end up being friends even if we have nothing in common. Plus I find it easier to be outgoing when trying to sell things, as strange as it seems, since it’s easy to want to share something I’m excited about selling.
(Not to mention you end up having the same convo 10,000 times a day, it’s basically a script haha!)
