Hello again FanX!
It’s that time of year when all of us fellow nerds and geeks get to come together again to enjoy our favorite comic book artists, vendors, celebrities, cosplayers, and of course the panels. This year will be the first time where I am not going all out trying to find something epic to cosplay in and I must admit, I am actually excited to just wear some jeans. wink emoticon (Except for one which you will hear about!)
And speaking of panels, I have the privilege of participating in 6 this year. I’ve been doing doing this for the past few years for FanX and Comic Con and to ensure that the panel is a success, preparation is incredibly important to help you be ready. If you are chosen to be a moderator, you are the one asking the questions to the other panelists in the group and you will want to make sure that you are incredibly familiar with your topic as you are giving some input as well. Being a moderator is fun and scary at the same time and luckily for me, this year I get a break from moderating and get to go along for the ride. So my preparation is a little different this year.
What I like to do is see what the description is for the panels I am on and either re-watch the shows again, read articles, check out highlights, or write down notes. Since you don’t know the questions in advance what the moderator is planning to ask, you will want to make sure that you know enough about your topic so you can carry yourself and keep things interesting. Luckily for me I am on amazing panels this year so I think the biggest thing I will have to worry about is not falling off my chair because I’m so excited to talk about our panels.
Here is a list of panels that I will be on so you can come join us for some crazy fun!
