Apparently, I'm Posting Weekly Now
So much going on, and yet, I'm hardly posting anything. (Sorry about that!) For example, last weekend was highly social. On Friday evening I went to The Librarian
's house, where she, her roommate A, sanguinity
and I worked on our 3 On The 3rd comics (I also drew and inked some potential Vote Incentive comics, too). I didn't actually post
any of them, however, as I went on Saturday morning to snottygrrl
's new flat. My procrastination had paid off, and I hadn't taken Mr. TV to be recycled yet, so he'll enjoy a semi-retirement providing her with video images (once she gets a digital converter and/or DVD player).
She and I then went to Wordstock
. Snottygrrl had specific authors she wished to see, so we heard presentations by Scott Westerfeld
, Laini Taylor
and Sarah Rees Brennan
, each talking about their respective books (and we spoke with Ms. Brennan for a bit, too). I had writer/artist friends I wanted to see, so in between speakers we wandered the exhibit hall, where we met and chatted with David Levine
, David Malki !
, Aaron Diaz
, Dylan Meconis
, Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett
(and I bough a copy of their new Boilerplate book). Even though I didn't have a book to pitch or sell, I found it all very energizing, and reminded me that I want to be one of the speakers at such events. After that, we were hungry and spacey, so we went to Hoda's for a tasty dinner of kabob an lamb shwarma.
Sunday saw a Family Brunch with BILJ's side of the family. Eight adults and four children. Enjoyable, but you can imagine that after a while, I was Done With Being Around So Many People. So I worked on my new Sekkrit Craft Project until sanguinity
called and suggested an afternoon walk. After that, the weekend was over, except for the dinner and TV and sleeping.
So, a good weekend, if one that went by much too fast. Current Mood: satisfied
