- Pitch Wars has begun! Well, the preliminary stuff, anyway. Mentors have posted their wish lists. I'm on the blog hop.
- Did some editing on my new short story and finally decided it's more or less done. Also I'm currently calling it "That Story about Fortune Cookie Girl." Charming, eh? I submitted it somewhere on Sunday, to a magazine that not only takes stories this long BUT likes stuff that criticizes tropes and rises above genre. Well, maybe they'll like it.
- I posted a ton of new reviews this week on Goodreads and had a ball because, well, I was reviewing books I read more than ten years ago and I got to the part where I got to review every Animorphs book. Did 'em all in two days. :)
- I wrote a few pieces/answered a few sets of questions for upcoming pieces that will be featured around my book release. If anyone reading this wants to do a piece about my asexuality book on a blog somewhere around the first week of September, tell me!
- Redecorated my apartment for Lughasadh this week, finally. (I was late.) Now my apartment looks appropriately late-summery.
- I ate at New York's Best Pizza with Jeaux this week. We went to his house to watch America's Got Talent and listen to Night Vale.
- I am on Brenda Drake's blog hop for Pitch Wars, of course.
- I'm on Brenda's "coffee break" blog for the video I did with Pitch Wars Adult mentors.
- Finished Field of Blood by Denise Mina. ★★★
- Currently reading Captain Underpants #10 by Dav Pilkey.
