So we did Imaginarium again, as we do every year. Imaginarium, in case you missed my post last week, is a general-interest creative writing festival and a book/gift expo. The expo is open to the public, although the convention cos’es moneys, but not many moneys.
NATURALLY, I was on the lookout for doors.
Like the entrance to the convention and expo building.
Close-up of those lights for Joey.
Here’s the side door, the one you have to cross the parking lot from the hotel to. This is the door Walter Koenig (yes, Chekov from Star Trek!) held, at a past convention, for my #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian.
And this is the door in front of which they discussed Russian literature.
But that was a different convention.
Here are some more doors from this event.
These nifty doors that look to narrow to get anything through, but are MAGIC!
And this! Where could this fabulous door lead? Does it lead to paradise? Does it lead to a garden of earthly delights?
I wanted to tell you about how horrible the hotel was (the staff was terrific!), but I don’t feel like being negative today, and it isn’t the staff’s fault that the various owners have chosen to let the facility decline. And it isn’t the convention-runner’s fault that he was shown around the bits that had been renovated and led to believe the rest of the hotel was up to that standard.
We’ll definitely be back to the convention, because it’s the best event evar!!!! But we’ll stay in a different hotel. Since we have to cross the lot anyway, we might as well drive from another hotel and park.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about a door. Or a hotel. Or a hotel door.
