Today is my last “free day” because I am (finally) employed! I start Monday but tomorrow is going to be spent preparing for SMO Comicon on Friday and (obviously) Friday will be for the Comicon itself. I won’t go into the details but the position I got is as a content writer and I’m going to start training on Monday! I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait! This is going to be super exciting for me because it presents the opportunity to learn about non-fiction writing and how to better organize my ideas. I really hope this job is going to help me become more articulate and that I’ll do well there. Fingers crossed!In the meantime, however, I can’t seem to sit still. So I decided that I’m going to try and make this day as fun/challenging as possible. My health has also improved significantly since I slept for 10 hours last night (I got up at 7 today but made myself go back to sleep and I don’t have colds anymore–my voice still sounds raspy but meh, not complaining since my voice is pretty high anyway) so I am ready to do this!!!!!
I am dedicating this day to the Facebook Art Challenge that was going around yesterday. Basically, it promises the first 10 people who comment on your post that you will make a piece of art (a poem, a painting, a drawing, a photograph, whatever) by the end of this year (2014). But because I am bad at turning people down, I decided to give the first 15 people who commented work. So far 13 have commented and I’m already working on the first bit of work. I figure even if this day turns out “badly” and I only get one piece of work out, that’s still one work more than nothing. So yay!
My plan is to create a small work of fiction and an illustration to go with that because I have been wanting to work on my illustration skills as well. Each work will have to be able to stand on its own while a) having something to do with that person and b) having something to do with my affiliation with that person. I’ve begun cataloging items and memories with the people who commented and this is really riling me up. Here’s to hoping I get a lot done today!
