My Apologies to My Fan
The Savage Worlds Licensee seminar on ended with ahuge surprise for me: somebody I didn't know actually shook my hand and pronounced himself a fan of The King is Dead and this blog.
Frankly, I'm still not used to thinking of myself as a professional writer and I was really unprepared for an actual, real-life fan. I blathered out some thanks but really screwed up on some basic courtesy -- like catching this fan's name.
To my fan, please forgive me. It was my first time at GenCon and the first time I received recognition from someone who wasn't another blogger already known to me or was an industry professional I already knew by sight or reputation.
Also, your badge had flipped around and I was too shy to ask your name. I can be an idiot like that.
Meeting somebody who likes my work and whom I am either not pursuing employment from or is seeking to employ me is so far a unique experience. It was a perfect apertif to a fantastic weekend. My apologies again.
Thank you tremendously.
Oh, and if I get to call Wil Wheaton and Chris Pramas "Wil" and "Chris," then please -- please -- just call me Sean.
