C. Spike Trotman‘s talk from xoxofest about succeeding in indie comics even though everyone told her it wouldn’t work. Inspiring on lots of creative, kickstarter, indie levels:
Fangirl and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. My third time reading Fangirl, and this time aloud to Anna who is loving it, and we both keep laughing. Carry On is kind of a spinoff/sideways sequel ish thing and I am looooving that too. Rainbow is such a fantastic writer ❤
Rainbow's End Night Rides when it's really quiet! Anna and I were right in figuring long weekend + Armageddon + rainy day would mean less people at the park and our waits for rides were minimal, and we got to see a fire dancing show! Also I got a candy floss which was not only substantially bigger than my head, but it glowed!
Armageddon was also fun and I got to catch up with some friends. Saw lots of super cool cosplays, bought some really great merch, got a bit ragey at the crowds and overall found the experience a bit draining, but fun!
My little herb and vege garden doing really well
