This year's play was about a young lady named, Dale, who has been stuck in a TV playing Norse themed programming by Loki, God of Mischief. The kids were as usual, brilliant. They range in age from eight to fourteen but they perform like they are much older. I've never seen kids work harder than the kids at this camp. I was so proud of these guys and after a careful count we realized that this was our seventh play and our third year at the Calgary Fringe Festival.
Here's my crew being awesome:
It was really great to have the opportunity to do that and kind of cool to think about how far I have come.
I was also working on my February Trilogy and getting ready to get into it but then I got a phone call from Lorimer. They want me to do another book about Comic and Anime cosplay. I love comics and anime and conventions and cosplay and OMG! Of course I said, yes. Now I'm working on making my characters and plot outline. Don't worry though, as soon as I'm done, I'll get right back on February. That project will get finished. Promise.
Of course that seems like tons to do, right? I can't take anything more on? This is me - so, yeah, I'm working on something else. I was accepted to the TD Book Week 2015 tour and to get ready for it, I have paperwork and promotion to fill out and get ready. I don't mind though because I'm so happy to be chosen for this tour.
And once I get that in, I have one more thing to do - The Reality Is Optional Word Adventure Camp in the last week of August! I love this camp because it's so chill. If the kids want to do something, we do it. And if they just want to hang out at the park, we do that. No stress. No worries. Just fun and relaxation. I'm even scoping out a little beach area the flood made last year. An afternoon writing about mythological creatures on a sandy spit sounds like heaven.
So, yeah, it's been a while between blogs - but I promise, it wasn't because I was doing nothing.
Here's a picture of last year's RIO Word Adventure campers. Evidently they are so excited. . .
