ARTISTS PUSHING BOUNDARIES AND A EPISODE OF SNL

Congrats to all of you whose work days end today. TGiF!
This week has been mostly working on The Nolan Sisters and today I'm hoping to power through a few scenes even with my head feeling all sorts of ways (sore throat, achy eyes, lingering migraine...). I got up at 5 am and read a short story, then started on this post right away because I forgot that I needed to add 'brainstorm and decide' to my schedule today. Trying to figure out if I'm ready to add a new project into the mix now, or next month (bulletpoint #4).

Here's some things that caught my interest this week:

  • I found Benjamin Von Wong while nosing around Photoshop.com. I followed a link back to his website and read this post: How I Photographed Superheroes on the Edge of a Skyscraper   I love when artists document their process, and it's interesting to see where these 'superheroes' came from and how the whole shoot was inspiring.
  • Lately, I've been searching for other ways to get my stories in front of more people. I walk around the house doing chores and listening to Youtube videos. (lightbulb on:) I'm gonna record myself reading a story and upload to Podiobooks and Youtube. I don't know if I have a voice that you can listen to for 15 to 30 minutes at a time, but we'll see. The idea came to me late last year, but I was terrified to actually do it.

 

  • Read a short story from Lovecraft's Monsters: Children of the Fang by horror writer, John Langan. Think I'm gonna check out more of John's work.
  • Ksenia Anske won a seat in the Amtrak Residency Program and she's been blogging about every day. It's been fun to follow. Her blog
  • I haven't paid attention to Saturday Night Live in a long time. The hubby showed me a clip from Youtube last night: "It was your mother's handwriting. She was holding the pen!" LOL!
