Shakespeare experiencing a scheduling problem – apologies

So Act I of Romeo and Juliet was supposed to go up right now. However, it will release tomorrow instead.
This happened due to me being only one person and then becoming one person with a sick day instead of a day to finish the text of her cartoon. It doesn’t help that my drawings are done if all the characters are still mute.

Sorry. See you in 24 hours.

Weekly Writing Challenge – Walk a Mile in Someone Else’s Shoes

This week, we’re asking you to consider things from a different point of view — to walk a mile in someone’s shoes. Leave your moccasins and bunny slippers at the door, and tell us a tale from a fully-immersed perspective that is not your own.

Lunch time writing challenge

The Daily Post’s Weekly Writing Challenge looked interesting, so I decided to chime in this week.

For this week’s writing challenge, take a cue from O’Hara and write a short(er) post during your lunch hour. During this limited period of time, take a look at your surroundings and document what you see. (more…)

There’s someone I’d like you to meet…

Status update: I’ve been procrastinating all day. But what I’ve really been doing, I don’t even know. I did bake cupcakes today, however. And I still have to read 400 pages of a very confusing book before Monday. Great?
Eating: Still nothing! Sad smile Foooood?

Drinking: Tea.

Listening: “A Magnificent Journey” – Denny Schneidemesser (This man has a name you can strangle someone with. And it’s a nightmare to type. I just went and checked and I managed to spell it right first time, for once. Yee-hay!)
Reading: “Nostromo”. (I have to, okay?! It’s a prescribed work, and we’re writing test on it. Please don’t judge me!)

 

This is a rather strange post. It is somewhere between a teaser-post of things to come and a making-up-space-post. Ah well. Read it and decide for yourself whether I should rather just stop blogging right now, or if I am onto something here.

 

Now. I said there was someone I’d like you to meet. Here he is:

He is an origami pigeon. But he looks more like a chicken to me. The poor thing has a bit of an identity crisis. And yes, I did make him. That means I am his creator, and he should worship me. Mwhahaha!

Ahem. He lives on my desk. And he may play some part in my future blog posts, which is why I am introducing him to you now. I used to have a Pacman-type origami character which I also made. He was dubbed Vincent, but seeing that Vincent has now gone to the great big recycling bin in the sky, Bill has now become my companion.

 

Now, about the things to come. I am working on a blog post about… my failed driving license test. Just to tease you:

Me & Cartoon car front

I cannot promise next week, but I’ll try and get it done as soon as possible! So check back to see it!

 

Finally, Bill wants to say something. Over to you, buddy!

 

Hi guys. It is nice to meet y’all! My, my… you all look heaps interestin!

But nevermind that… I just wanna tell you guys that I’ll be writing ye sometin every now and then. Elana just don’t know it yet, but what I actually wanna do is tell you guys stuff about her that ye would never’ve guessed. Don’t tell her, but I’m gonna embarrass her!

Talk soon!

Bill

 

Did I tell you I made cupcakes today? Hmm, well yes, I did. Anyway, yummy! Here’s one for you as well: Birthday cake Oh no, wait, that’s a birthday cake. Well, just pretend it was a cupcake, okay? Rolling on the floor laughing
