Thursdays it is!
I had some technical difficulties over the last week or so, which prevented me from keeping my word so far as posting on Tuesday. This actually ended up being a good thing, since I realized that I have two friends who post their own links the same days. (BRoadcast & The Rock N Roll Palace of Love)
So far as my “technical difficulties”?
Well, during the re-fab of the store all the cables, wires, etc. were unplugged, to sort through the tangled mess under the register stand. In the process we lost the interweb! Obviously this has been remedied thanks to my friend Jezra.
And yesterday I managed to ever so gracefully trip over the power-cord to my ancient laptop. This caused it to turn off and shoot blue sparks from the adapter plug.
Especially since I had just gathered the balls to e-mail the editor of the New Bizarro Author Series for more information on how to have my work considered.
Everything I have been working on, with the exception of the twisted “game show” piece , is in my laptop and is being held hostage by blue sparks. Fortunately I can at least continue to work on that piece the good ol’ fashioned pen-to-paper way. Which is how I often begin most of my pieces anyway. I really enjoy rambling on in my nonsensical manner (Me?…No. Never!) and then transferring it to my computerized word program. It’s a great way to purge all of my ideas and then weed out the useless, or add to parts I may have left a little malnourished.
So, hopefully we’ll get my little laptop going again soon, as I have a lot of work to do before BizarroCon in November.
Which brings me to shamelessly begging for your hard-earned dollars and pocket change: It is imperative that I get to Portland for this amazing event. I am offering any of the following in return for donations to my travel fund:
- High fives
- The pleasure of knowing that you are helping me do something that really means a lot to me.
I think we’ve covered a lot of ground today.
