Personal Digest Saturday: August 22 – August 29

Life news this week: 
  • Saturday was Drink and Draw! I got to see my friends again and hang out doodling and munching good stuff. I had a really yummy VLT and soup, and we got to talk about drawing, cartoons, and writing.
  • Sunday and some time every day the rest of the week was spent on Pitch Wars submission reading. I am almost certainly the slowest mentor in the pack because I'm reacting to each one as I read it, writing feedback--partly so I don't have to do it later and partly because it helps me figure out concretely which things I like best. I only requested extra material from a handful of my submitting authors . . . and I'm not done yet.
  • Work at the office was really busy, too. I had a big proposal I had to put together on Monday (and had to work extra hours), and then I got pulled into a huge production job to send out some fliers. I'm going to have to put out more than 3,000 of these things. Rargh.
  • I got a follow-up interview on some quotes I gave a while back, so I guess another interview with me is going to be posted soon. It sounds like it's going to be a pretty in-depth article given the number of my own quotes they read back to me.
  • My friend Jeaux's electricity got turned off for a box replacement or something so he had to sleep over my house. Which is cool since he sleeps in the daytime and was doing so when I wasn't even there. Then he left when I came home. And I went to my mom's. We had Chinese food and hung out talking, and I got to get some of my submissions done there too.
  • Wednesday was Jeaux Day and we ate at Chili's, and then did our usual America's Got Talent watching and updated ourselves on the latest Gravity Falls.
  • I finally hit 5,000 subscribers on YouTube, so soon I'll be able to answer all the questions people sent in for my 5,000 subscriber special. :)
