Since it’s July, I thought it was time to do a 6-monthish evaluation on my resolutions—really to gauge where I am, and if I need to do some adjusting.
It’s Monday– I need the energy. *dances*
So I’m sure many of you are caught up on the whole Universal Fancon fiasco, and yeah… it was a shitshow. I’d gotten the email along with the other Kickstarter backers around 1 P.M. Friday and had to break the news to my publisher (she was never notified). Thank God she hadn’t started to ship things out to the hotel or to me. My publisher was able to recoup the money she’d lost from her bank, but I don’t know if other vendors were able to do the same.
So now, we’ve got Anime North to look forward to! It’ll be my first trip to Toronto in many, many moons and I’ll have Memorial Day free to look around. So if you’ve got some suggestions on places I should check out, please hit me up and let me know.
I promise to get better with blogging this year. I’ve had so many real life events pop up that have deterred me concerning writing. But the year isn’t over yet and I’ve still got some writing goals to meet. I know it’s early but I’ve been thinking about NaNoWriMo—whether I plan to participate or not. It’ll depend on where I’m living. I’d planned to move this summer, but it may or may not be postponed until after this upcoming winter. So we’ll see—if I’m still in Baltimore and have time, I’ll do it. If I’m in the middle of another project (regardless of where I’m living), I’ll miss it this year.
Honestly in a way, I’m always doing NaNo, lol! Oh before I forget, I’ve found a podcast episode I’d forgotten I’d recorded. So as soon as I can edit it, I’ll post it. Good timing, as it’s an updated interview with Sharon, my publisher, while we were at a trade show and now, we’re about to head to another!
How do you continue on when your world changes in one night?
First, I apologize for the long ass delay. A couple of months ago, my best friend died. And then literally a day later, I was in the hospital with the flu. Needless to say, I’ve put pause on EVERYTHING and I’m just now starting to get back into the flow of things.
First, I must apologize for the long delay in my postings—recently I had a bout of bronchitis (that I really think started out as allergies but then mutated!) I took a quick trip to the hospital on Black Friday and surprisingly, didn’t stay too long thankfully. After a check to make sure it wasn’t pneumonia, I was given meds and a nebulizer treatment—which I must say really helped clear things up! I’ve never had a treatment before, though I’ve been asthmatic since I was 19.
This started out as an Instagram post, but the more I typed out I realized that this needed to be a blog post.
I know it’s been a minute since my last post but the school year has started and this means coming home exhausted and passing out. For those who don’t know, my day-job is a preschool teacher. The pay is ok but the schedule is very flexible so it works for my acting and writing schedule right now.
My kids are 2- and 3-years old so they’re getting used to the idea that school isn’t a bad place, and that mommy and daddy come back. But anyways, I just wanted to post quickly to say that if you’re in Baltimore, check out the Baltimore Book Festival and the Baltimore Comic Con this weekend. I’ll be around at the book festival, and I’ve got tickets to the opening of Charm Kitty Café so I’m excited about that.
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be doing another week of reposts on my Instagram, so check that out.
It’s already Labor Day?! Guys, is it just me or is 2017 in a hurry to be done? Not that I’m complaining… (see: Brexit, cholera outbreak in Yemen, US 2016 Presidential Elections, Hurricane Harvey, etc.) But I am kinda excited to see what 2018 will hold.
(Hopefully some elected officials with some common fucking sense in this country.)
Hey guys! Shameless plug here but I’ve received some new followers to the blog. Welcome and cake is over on the long table. Below is where you can find me on social media:
