Dags! Glad to see you're in one busy piece! You're a rockstar for being an adult. (It's true. I only manage it some days.) <3

I’m so sad! After I made that post I parted with a few tears. Sometimes I hated being so horribly swamped and stretched during my last months of school and I would just bang my head on the desk and hold my breath. If porny fanart could be a job I would have loved to do it. I can’t imagine how many people I upset because I didn’t get back to their messages, among other things. Adulting on


Being an adult is really hard.

And I’m really really bad at it! I’m so sorry y’all, I’ve been away even longer than I ever have, and there’s no excuse except real life. I’ve finally graduated school, but it didn’t free me up for more time like I’d hoped. I’ve just been busier. With senior show, graduation, old and ailing parents, moving once and soon again, and then getting a job that actually uses my degree, I’ve been busier than ever. Fandom is at the back of my mind most days, and I’ve lost a lot of interest for fandom things that I’ve always loved. I won’t ever quit fandom I think, but I’m still trying to get settled into existing without the community and comfort of a school environment. I’m afraid I’ve amassed emails and messages that I simply have been unable to look at. If you see a new message from me that’s responding to something you sent ages ago, I’m so sorry! I’ve been ignoring my lovely internet friends, and still shamefully have commissions that are long past due. For this reason I don’t think I will do commissions at all anymore, or at least for a long, long while. I’ve never really had time for them, though I wanted with all my heart to do more and more.

I love you all, and I do wish I coudl do all the fandom things I plan out in my head. I see fanart everywhere, but I rarely get to draw it out.

Q
I legit made a screeching noise when I found out about it on facebook. Alexis was like "wtf" and I was like "OH HOW THE TABLES TURN, MY DEAR" but yeah anyway super proud of him and still WANNA TAKE THAT GODDAMN CLASS
A

You gotta! I’ve had my fair share of professors I’ve loved, but Will takes the cake. He’s such a cool person and he teaches an amazing class. Best lecturer ever. He spins a lecture like a story. You would swear you were listening to an audiobook (which he’s actually doing now!). We had a sub yesterday because he told us he’d be away at the award show. We had our fingers crossed. 


So very proud

Guys, I just want to let you all know how super proud I am of my very favourite professor, Will Alexander. He just won a National Book Award for his first novel, Goblin Secrets, and his students at MCAD, especially we Sci-fi and Fantasy students, are super ultra excited for him!

For the first time ever, two Minnesota writers have won National Book Awards. At a glittering event Wednesday night in New York City, Minneapolis writer Louise Erdrich took home her first National Book Award for fiction for “The Round House,” and young-adult author William Alexander won for “Goblin Secrets,” his debut novel.


Erdrich, 58, grew up in Wahpeton, N.D., and now lives in Minneapolis, where she owns Birchbark Books. “The Round House” is her 14th novel and the second in a planned trilogy set on a North Dakota reservation.


The first book of the trilogy, “The Plague of Doves,” was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2009.


Erdrich has been a finalist for the National Book Award twice before — in 1999 for a children’s book, “The Birchbark House,” and in 2001 for a novel, “The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse.”


Alexander lives in Minneapolis and teaches at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. He was notified of his National Book Award nomination in October, on his 36th birthday.

"I’m still not used to being a novelist at all," he said by phone Wednesday night, sounding happy and surprised. "I’ve only been a novelist since March."


His second book, “Ghoulish Song,” will be published in March, exploring the same strange world as his first book, but from a different perspective.
