Cover design is nearly done. I JUST gave my designer the back cover text. Once he adds that and gives me the link, I can bring it to Staples and get some chap books printed to give out.
But wait! I have to fix up the first chapter so it can be put into this little book. Before I can do that…
So at Can-Con, there’s a Hallowe’en party.
I’ve always loved Hallowe’en, so naturally I have to have a costume for it!
I need to step out tonight to hopefully purchase the almost last thing I need.
I’m currently dying a skirt to complete the costume.
I need to find time to watch the movie, so I can portray the character accurately. If not, I’ll just be cute and swear a lot.
There’s a mask, so no one will know it’s me, right?
While I can grab pho on Friday during the break between the workshop and the actual start of Can-Con, Saturday and Sunday I require food.
This is always a challenge for me during things like this with my triple food sensitivity to dairy, eggs, and yeast.
I’m not sure if the hotel will have much I can eat.
I can pre-make some muffins or vegan “quiches” for breakfasts.
Lunch could be something light like salsa and chips…
Snacks of homemade cookies?
What to have for a meal on Saturday? Maybe there’s something fast nearby that I can eat.
Maybe it doesn’t look too bad after all.
I need to finish one of my horror short stories to bring to a session where I get tips. I’m thinking the one on cannibalism.
I need to ensure I have copies of my first chapter for the other session where I get tips.
I also need to be ready to pitch my book to two small presses. This is way exciting and also a little scary.
I need to put some notes together for this!
I’m falling behind in my writing course with all of the other priorities.
I’ve been handing in pieces of stories I haven’t finished or tried to publish rather than writing new ones.
The next thing is finishing my preparation for National Novel Writing Month. It starts next weekend too.
The weekend after that is a Koryu seminar in Peterborough! I need to register, pay, etc for this. I’ll have to use my wooden sword and go easy.
There’s also a book launch tomorrow I’ll be heading to after martial arts. There’ll be physio in between too. Not breathing much in the next few weeks…
