Monthly Summary: May 2018

May was an eventful month! I met Victoria Aveyard author of the Red Queen series, I attended MegaCon, and got a second job!

What I did:

I worked on my Silver Hood outline, I went over some beta feedback, and I’ve been working on my proposal for Red Hood. I’ve had to rewrite the synopsis because of the plot changes. 

I got to meet Victoria Aveyard author of the Red Queen series who is on tour for War Storm! She was really nice and I got my books signed!

I went to MegaCon! Squee! I got to meet Cary Elwes (Wesley in Princess Bride), Maile Flanagan voice of Naruto, Jewel Staite (Kaylee from Firefly), and Elijah Wood (Frodo from the Lord of the Rings)! I also some awesome cosplay and purchase some great artwork. See my full report!

I also got a second job with Instacart. I need some more dough for saving up for Iceland. So far I like the job. ^ ^

3.) I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

I did one drawing this month. It’s of Chalmers from Silver Hood!

5.) My piece about the short film "Being Pretty" went up on Geekdom House!

The Geeky Department:

I finally watched the Iron Giant and I really enjoyed it. It has a lot of really deep themes. 

2.) I got to cosplay as Ymir, Lady Bishamon, and a Mirkwood Elf!

What I'm Going to Do:

1.) I’m going over beta feedback, finishing the Red Hood proposal, and optimally I will have Red Hood ready to send by the end of June.

2.) I’m going to South Carolina to attend my cousin’s wedding. I’m so excited for him and to see my family. The rest of the month will mostly be work haha.

3.) I’m going to finish Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince and Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin. And if all goes well start Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

4.) I’m hoping to do a drawing me and my patronus. I just recently found out that it’s a bat and I think that would make a fun drawing. 

5.) I’ll have a piece about the Secret World of Arietty go up on Geekdom House
