I haven't actually been online that much but rather working on the second book (which, whoo, turned in the first draft on Friday!) and also some volunteer work and some job stuff... Also, I have been preparing for Otakon, which I'll be attending with meronine and danibennett from Thursday through Sunday. We're going to be in the artist's alley! Right here, in fact, where the little red arrow indicates. So if you're going to be there you should totally stop by and say hey and maybe buy some sexy artwork, OR some limited edition copies of Pie-IX for your friends or your family or, even better, for yourself. Anyone on my flist planning on going? I would love it if you came to say hi!
That being said, the real point of this post is... I'M GOING TO JAPAN IN OCTOBER. It's almost 100% final and hopefully writing it in livejournal land will make it 100% final. There are many things (some of them hopefully work-related!) that I will be doing there. When I found out, I actually began crying so hard in public that I embarrassed myself and total strangers, not to mention all family members nearby. I'M GOING TO JAPAN. AHHHH. So I have some questions.
1. How does one survive a 14 hour flight.
2. How does one survive a 14 hour flight?
3. Any tips on how to uhhhh best experience a foreign-language speaking country?
4. HOW DOES ONE SURVIVE A 14 HOUR FLIGHT?
