In 2 weeks I, along with Teen Beast, will be making my way to London for YALC/LFCC. And I’m counting down the days. It’s a YALCdown.
2 weeks! Are my costumes ready? No.
Have I finished my reading list? No.
Am I very excited? HELLS YEAH!
Not only do I get to spend 3 days with my favourite people. But its 3 days of fabulous fandoms and fun. Workshops and panels, photos and signings, merch and BOOKS! so many beautiful books.
Last year was a blast. Even if it was the hottest weekend ever. I was lucky that I have the best gang in the world, herding me, making sure people were fed and hydrated, and keeping track of all the things we wanted to do.
TIPS for YALC: Bring drinks – whatever (non alcoholic) drink it is you prefer. Snacks – keep your energy up and don’t burn out. Money – not all sellers will take card. Plan – know what you want to do and who you want to see. This will help you to not miss things and people. But stay flexible, don’t stress about keeping to a strict schedule. Have fun – you will. I promise. Meet new people and make bookish friends.
Tickets are still available so if you’ve been on the fence now is the time.
