nerdy good news and nerdy less-good news

Posted on Updated on

I finished the first draft of that cartoon pilot yesterday, and today I sent out invitations to my parent/teacher/kid friends for a reading in May. Unfortunately, most weekends before then have something going on. The first date I chose would have been during the Calgary Expo, which I don’t intend to miss. http://www.calgaryexpo.com/

There’s going to be a reunion for the cast of Aliens, and a big Lord Of The Rings event (not called a reunion, because only 10 important people from the production are expected to show up) The parade is happening again this year. Last year I took a kid who I was nannying for. He fist-bumped everyone in a superhero costume that we could find, and he sat on Darth Vader’s lap for a picture. Personally, as much as it’s great to have famous guests and fun costumes, I’m mostly in it for the panels and lectures. Learned quite a bit from them in the past.

I just found out that I am not one of the five finalists for The Dark Crystal Author Quest. http://www.darkcrystal.com/authorquest.php

Best of luck to all of them. I’d say I’ll try again next year, but I’m pretty sure it was a one-time deal. Oh well.

    And a few hours later I found out that I also didn’t win the 3-day novel challenge. That, however, is something I can try again for next year. http://www.3daynovel.com/
