The chance to guest post!
DeeDeesLivingWill is the journal of DeeDee Stewart, the creator and performer of Dirty Barbie. She began the playwriting process through entries on this site, which is an awesome read for anyone who enjoys storytelling, humor, Southern childhoods, or wonders what it takes to prepare for an international theater festival.
In yesterday’s post, 3 Things I Learned While Shouting ‘It’s Awesome and Dirty But Not Like You Think!’, I shared some highlights from our PR campaign for DeeDee’s one-woman show, Dirty Barbie and Other Girlhood Tales.
WriterHouse is Charlottesville’s home for everybody who wants to sharpen their craft, drop in on writer talks, seminars, or connect to the creative community. It’s a wonderfully intimate space (complete with coffee machines and classrooms), and the non-profit encourages writers of all abilities to share feedback and company in this often lonely craft.
Authors, editors, and other accomplished creative folks offer their insights on the WriterHouse blog, so I brought my A game for my guest post, 5 Free Virtual Tools to Help You Keep Your Focus. Needless to say, my A game includes anthropomorphic squirrels.
Also a lot less sleep.
I went to bed at 3:30AM. Because I wanted a new site design.
As much as I liked the minimalist aesthetic of my last site facelift, I had a few problems with the landing page and couldn’t resolve them in my chosen theme. As a result, I decided to choose a new one. As I learned in March, this process can take as long as a secondary education. On the bright side, I will share the upshot of this hair-raising process in a tutorial soon.
I woke up half an hour later because I had a dog on my legs and a cat on my head.
Boyfriend and I are pet sitting, so our normal animal-to-human ratio (1:2) is way out of whack (3:2). Technically this doesn’t relate to blogging, but you can bet I’ll blog about it soon. (Hint: it might sound like this.)
In sum, dear reader, check out those excellent blogs, and I apologize for any visual weirdness on mine. I promise I’m losing sleep over it.
