I’ve been receiving some very nice e-mails lately. Among them was a link one of my friends sent me, which included this life lesson:
16. Most people are actually nice: This is something I’ve only recently realized. Most people are nice, but not usually to strangers. Once they get to know you and you get to know them, they will most likely seem like very nice people.
It’s true, and it’s good to keep in mind.
Saturnalia cosplay! Here’s some excellent Lan cosplay by envirion at Katsucon 2008 last weekend. (Remember Lan? From that webcomic I once did?) She’s also taken the costume to Anime USA 2007. Awesome work! Here’s a quick pic of Lan I drew and sent to her. I also finally got around to drawing and sending an Ellipsis pic to the girl who cosplayed her.
Some news: Nekocon (Hampton, Virginia) is interested in having me as a guest this year! That means I can pretend to be important and I’ll get to speak at panels and maybe even have a book signing. It’s in early November, which is perfect timing, too — I’ll have finished Book 2 and Book 1 will be out by then. The only issue is the costs. Virginia is… pretty far from where I live. But hey, maybe Del Rey can help out since it’ll be a business trip? We’ll see!
