Personal Digest Saturday: July 25 – July 31

Life news this week: 
  • So, I spent a bunch of time this week editing a friend's book, and I'm two thirds of the way done, so I'll probably finish soon . . . just in time for Pitch Wars. Which, if you didn't know, is STARTING WITH MENTOR BIO POSTS NEXT WEEK. Damn it crept up on me, and I'm one of the mentors!
  • I broke a thousand Twitter followers. Twitter was kind enough to tell me so with a little message. Whee.
  • Went to Mom's on Wednesday because Jeaux was at the dentist. We made mushroom gravy and rice, and I helped her carry a mattress. I know, so exciting. It's good to hang out with Mom, though. And we did Skype with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. Man that kid is a cutie.
  • I got my bike tuned up and its front tire fixed this week, which meant leaving it in the shop for a couple days and that meant walking to work, which would have been much nicer if it hadn't been SO RAINY. Ugh.
  • Jeaux and I met on Thursday instead of the usual Wednesday and our restaurant choice was Panera. We ate there and watched America's Got Talent at his house.
  • I was being a cartoon loser and getting excited that the hiatus for the show I'm following was ending next week with new episodes coming back Thursday, but then got the news that they're postponing the return for another month and yes that counts as news for me. Ughhhh. Well, at least I'll get to focus on Pitch Wars or something. DANGIT.
      New reviews of my book:

      • Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy published a review of my book written by Anthony Bogaert! And I can't even read the whole thing because everything but the first page is behind a paywall! Well, here's the first page.
      Places featured:
          • I'm referred to as a "YouTube celeb" in this article from Salon called "Sex? No, thanks: Rather than obsession, what millions of Americans feel about sex is indifference," and they link to my materials. While describing the video they link to as "SwankIvy's unpolished video." Don't know why I'm even bothering to mention it but for some reason it just irritates me that they thought mentioning the quality of my video was relevant at all.
               Reading progress:

              New singing performances:

              Here I'm singing "Yesterday" by the Beatles

              New drawings:

              Webcomic So You Write Issue 50: "Self-Insert."

              Webcomic Negative One Issue 0533: "Just One Word."

              New videos:

              This week I got a writing video finished regarding "Strong Female Characters." It's about writing good female characters without basically trying to make them give the finger to femininity or become like a boy to be seen as "strong."


              New photos:  

              Ate my last Cookie Cat. :(
