WHAT I'M READING
And it is EXCELLENT. I like can't handle how good, how rich Maggie Stiefvater's writing is!
WHAT I'M WRITING
So I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to get any words down. I am still recovering from SDCC (and other things, but more on that later) if you can believe that. Imagine my surprise when I was hit by the muse again this week. I didn't write what I'm supposed to be working on, but I did write a little scene from something else. I reworked part of an old scene and I have to say I like this version a lot better.
I even wrote two #twtpoems!
Goal: Finish up this scene and actually write something for Luck.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
|Maggie Q (Nikita), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black),|
Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious)
And whatever reception it may have had with parts of the audience, I thought it was so awesome this panel was put in front of such a packed room. MAYBE this discussion about women, sexism, and diversity reached some new people.

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
SDCC RECOVERY! Seriously. I've been taking naps after work all week & I slept in all weekend. I did also manage to go to my little cousin-once-removed's birthday party, give Loki (the dog) a bath, and go to the Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z Legends of Summer concert. Yeah, those activities didn't help the recovery too much...

I'm also sorting through my SDCC pictures (and memories). I'll continue these couple of Fridays to recap the days chronologically, but I thought I'd post some outfit pics here today. Here are our attempts at geek chic!
DAY 1/ Outfit 1
|Sister: Bright blue bandeau, comic book exclamation tank, crochet shorts, HP Dark Mark|
(I drew it) Slytherin TOMS, POW! ring (pictured below).
|Mine: Lit-themed! Interrobang rings, lightning bolt bracelet, HP Marauders shirt, Ravenclaw |
tie-as-belt, gray shorts.
DAY 2/ Outfit 2
|Sister: White tank, Star Wars skirt (hand-sewn, pleats & all by our grandma!)|
|Mine: Space-themed! Star Wars shirt, cosmic skirt, starburst ring, celestial rings.|
DAY 3/ Outfit 3
We sort of bummed it on Saturday (Day 3) because we knew we'd be in Hall H all day. Plus, we had to get up in the middle of the night to go sleep in line. So, there was that - hence the hoodies!
|Sister: Tokidoki THOR shirt, blue maxi skirt, UCLA hoodie (not pictured).|
DAY 4/ Outfit 4
Also known as what we wore when we went to Nerd HQ and saw Tom Hiddleston. If you watch the panel, you can maybe spot me in the crowd thanks to my bright blue jacket.
|Sister: Marvel comics dress worn as shirt, gray shorts, black/cream jacket (not pictured).|
|Mine: Tokidoki Avengers shirt, patterned shorts, Tokidoki THOR hoodie (not pictured).|
