author and book blogger Dahlia Adler. Well, Instagram, it turns out, is an addictive thing. #AuthorLifeMonth ran through the end of February, and I woke up on the morning of March 1 feeling weirdly empty. Whadaya mean I don't have to find a picture to post???
Fellow Red Adept Publishing author Karissa Laurel and I were commiserating about our #AuthorLifeMonth withdrawal when a brilliant idea hit us: Let's keep posting pictures! This time, we wanted to show off our geeky sides. So we created a new Instagram/Twitter pic challenge, #GeekLifeMonth:
Hey, I warned you when I joined Across the Board that I was a nerd ;-) Anyway, here are the results of a month of geeky pics!
#GeekLifeMonth Day 1: First geeky memory I always loved sci-fi/fantasy, but Galaxy Quest caused some kind of geek awakening in me when I first watched it as a kid (I didn't realize it was a spoof!) I became obsessed with all things space-related thanks to this movie... And from there my fandom grew...
Just remembered something too funny not to share, so here's #GeekLifeMonth Day 1 Part II (even firster First Geeky Memory). I remember watching #startrektng with my mom when I was REALLY little (like, Pre-K), and being supremely confused about who some of those funny-looking space people were... 😂😂😂 #geekgirl #geeklife #fandom #startrek
#GeekLifeMonth Day 4: Geekiest event attended I go to about half a dozen conventions a year, but I'm naming #GenCon the geekiest because of the sheer number of awesome geeks that attend (it's by far the biggest con I've ever attended). I was peddling books in Authors' Ave... and I'll be back this year! 😃 #convention #gaming #geeklife #fandom #geeky #nerdy #nerdlife #nerdstuff #writerslife #writersofinstagram
#GeekLifeMonth Day 6: Cosplay! (or dream cosplay) I have no idea what I was cosplaying as in that pic.. I just wanted to wear a mask and carry two swords. Someday, I want to cosplay as River Tam or Rey... Though I'm seriously contemplating dressing as Lady Ren for GenCon... I have the lightsaber already...
Funny story... so I cross-posted the Obi-Wan pic to Facebook, where about 90% of my friends are feeling the Bern and posting Bernie articles and memes day in and day out. So one person, scrolling through Facebook quickly, glanced at this pic and thought for a second that it was Bernie Sanders LOL
#GeekLifeMonth Day 24: Fave music It was a toss-up between the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars soundtracks, but LOTR won because it featured Renee Fleming 😊. This is a pic of the title page of a breaking down the various themes and where they came from. And I got to meet both the author and Howard Shore!! 😃😃😃 #lotr #lordoftherings #geek #geeklife #nerdstuff #nerdlife #nerdy #music
#GeekLifeMonth Day 31: All-time fave character It should surprise precisely no one that this is another Star Wars one 😃. I'm cheating a little and saying the Skywalker twins, because I seriously can't choose between them! I love Leia's spunk and strength, and I love Luke's classic heroic arc. They've gotta reunite in the new trilogy... #StarWars #lukeskywalker #leiaorgana #geeky #geek #geeklife #nerdlife #nerdy #fandom
