I Love It When a Plan Comes Together

August is officially a Slam Dunk Success! Man, I need way more of those! I even came up with the title for Book Four last night, rather unexpectedly.

There are just a few things I need to finish off today, and then I will stick a fork in August and call it done:

  • Orange Alert: Dedication and acknowledgements pages
  • OA: Send "waiver letters" to Scott and Vince for their material
  • OA: Burn, baby, burn! (To CD, I mean.)
  • SJ Newsbox for Sept. 1
  • Bowflex! Mmm, Bowflex. And Kung Fu.
  • Get to the store for Pop Tarts and Bottled Frappuccino
  • Pack, pack, pack!

Depending on how the day goes, I might try to do some drawing in there somewhere, too. I have scripts for more SJ that it would be really cool to have done and up by the time Hikaru gets back from MFM, although I will have all day Tuesday for that, too. Hmm. That sketch of Col. Beowulf still wants finishing...

Whoof, 'n' Stuff

JWillard's getting at least $450 for the drawing she did of Falstaff as Captain Jack Sparrow. I have got to start getting auctions up! The last time I did some, I did something like four pics, and they each brought $150 or less; and I've never auctioned a commission, so I don't know what kind of price I could garner. Of course, even an extra $150/mo would be a significant boost to my income these days.

August was reserved, obviously, for Orange Alert and the new site. September, I think, I'm going to have to look at doing something with auctions. If nothing else, I need some extra money to replace this verschlugginer computer before it dies and takes the past 6 years of work with it!

BTW, I'm all packed. Markers are going with me to Dragon*Con! I didn't think I'd be able to get them into my carryons, but I'm apparently a much better packer than I thought I was. I am gonna do some drawing sometime this weekend, even if I have to do it in the hotel bar after everyone else has gone to bed.

PS: Mmm ... bed...

PPS: Have a great weekend, everybody! See you Monday night!
