What a month it was! Laura and I both set personal bests for words written and words written in a single day. Our region had a banner year for winners, and a grand time at all the events put on by our awesome team. And we’re FULL of ideas for the new year! Thanks to those of you who sent us good wishes, and congrats to all the winners among you! And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, nanowrimo.org is the place to start. 😉
Fun times at the con! Erika just got back from gencon and she had just as much fun as those children are having, although not in a flying sort of way.
One of the things I got to do at the con was talk to two of my most admired webcomic peoples, Jennie Breeden of the Devil’s Panties, and Randy Milholland of Something Positive. If you aren’t familiar with them, you should check them out. Not only because their comics are excellent, but also because they are both really nice people who are kind and friendly to their fans and very encouraging to other comic artists. Also, Randy remembers me on the rare occasions that I get to see him, and that makes me feel like a REALLY special person. I also got to feed them granola cookies, which also makes me super happy, because feeding people is kind of how I do.
I ALSO got to have a nice dinner with reader John! Hi, John! He has a secret identity that I cannot reveal, so we will say no more. 🙂
