Personal Digest Saturday: April 12 – April 18

Life news this week:

  • I kinda wasted my weekend with marathon phone chats, partially because I was feeling kind of ill. I spent Saturday chatting with Sarah and Sunday chatting with Kari.

  • I submitted a nonfiction piece about asexuality and femininity to a popular blog last week, and this wek I heard back. The editor said she liked it (with three exclamation marks), but wondered if I can . . . brace yourselves . . . MAKE IT LONGER. She wants it to be twice as long. Can you believe that? Nobody has ever asked me to make things longer before! YAY!

  • I updated my questionnaire full of useful information and media contacts for my publisher. I wanted to send it to her after my UVa appearance. :)

  • Monday I did Skype with my mentee, who had finished reading my book Finding Mulligan and wanted to chat about it. We asked each other questions from a list for people who have finished reading your book. :)

  • Tax return showed up in my bank account, yee-haw.

  • I played DDR on Tuesday and did not die.

  • Still editing for Ryan, my first alternate from Pitch Wars. Slowly but surely.

  • Ate at Flippers's with Jeaux on Wednesday, and we listened to Night Vale and watched an episode of Orphan Black.
