This Week’s Squees. Productivity-related even!

Mushu Avatar

Okay. I have a confession to make. I’m stuck on a Ni No Kuni board so vidjo gaming breaks are few and far between. F-Bomb timed puzzles. I SWEAR! I have, however, been busy with other things. And I socialized. Which is, of course, always dangerous. Always.

On to this week’s squees!

1.) Printed out the Couch to 5K plan. Will attempt to start this tomorrow. I squee in the face of motivation!

2.) Things I do when I’m not online. Rags to Riches Bracelet

Fairy Wirework

3.) Speaking of not online, I’m looking forward to NaNoNetMo for December. (National No Internet Month. I made it up!) Yep, I will still blog but a little less conversation and a lot more enjoying self and being productive offline is needed.

4.) Loads of socialization visits. Did I mention. I was social! I am not a sociopath! HOORAY! Annnnnd… I am planning… A party. Whoa. (I jest, but I’m actually not that bad. I play extroverted Stewart-esque host quite well.)

5.) Found a treasure today. A fat Star Wars Origami book. I have a happy. Now, if only I had a floor to justify getting a R2D2 robot who could roam around one day:

6.) Got through 150 e-mails today. Chipping the in box down to…um…less than what I had before. WOO!

7.) I have some great news to share very shortly. It’s career-related, and I think you’ll dig some of the new projects I have coming up.

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
