So I spoke at SCBWI NY a few weeks back and in my intensive presentation I told everyone that I blogged once a week, which is good advice to those of you starting out. Then, of course, I go on and break my own rule and I'm already behind in my posts. (Forgive me for last week)
In any case, I have to admit that I've been busy to the point of stressing out, but I need to post and so I'm just going to shotgun out some things that have been happening in my life these past few weeks and you can continue to pick and choose what you care to hear.
*Starting this week I will notify those librarians who will be getting books from my pile of books and I will send an invoice soon.
*Our family just adopted a dog! He's a Border Collie mixed with something else. We're still deciding what to name him. The shelter we got him at has called him Smudgy Pudgy (or Smudgy) which seems to fit, but we're not completely sold on it. I want to name him McLovin. My wife is strongly against it. I will entertain the idea of your dog name suggestions in my comments sectoin of this post.
*I've done some artwork for an upcoming art gallery show at the Nucleus Gallery. The theme is Dr. Seuss. Here' are my three contributions (I may possibly do Thing 2 if I have time)
* I took my kids to see the Fresh Beat Band live in concert yesterday. I think it was the first concert I've been to since seeing Tenacious D back in 2003? I will admit, I had a great time.
* I had to design the type for the French cover of Sidekicks. For years I wondered how a foreign publisher did this. Well, now I know.
* I'm still trying to figure out the appeal of Pinterest.
See you all next week
