Thoughtful Thursday - Can-Con Schedule



I can't believe it starts tomorrow. So much to do before then! Like figure out what food to bring. I figured out a schedule at least.
Officially, I am only on one panel and have nothing in the dealer's room, nor am I pitching anything, so I'm pretty wide open to take it all in. My panel is at noon on Sunday. It's Swordfighting 201. Oh, and the parties too.

Otherwise, I think I'm going to go to one or two workshops on Friday followed by the following panels:

  • Ursula K. Le Guin: Contributions and Legacy

  • Challenging Creative Marriages: Comic Book Writers and Artists Working Together

  • Portraying Non-Verbal Communication in Prose


Saturday

  • Character Arc and Mental Health

  • Epic Fantasy

  • The Ed Greenwood Group

  • Stormtalons

  • Either Renaissance Press Readings OR Unarmed Combat

  • Stormtalons: Closed World Building

  • Want to Dominate the World?

  • 2-hour BREAK from 5-7

  • What if vN is Just The First Circle of Hell: The Dark Future of Sexuality

  • Paper Airplane Thing OR Selling at Conventions

  • Witchcraft, Druids, and the Occult

  • Party


Sunday

  • Finances

  • Bodies of Difference

  • Swordfighting 201

  • The Diversification of the Comics Industry

  • Jay & Silent Dom on Comic Creation


At some point before the Swordfighting panel, I may miss something due to needing to practice for my panel, though.

Then I'm off to a friend's place for our B Movies Group. It's awards night.

Ciao,

R~

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
