I’m excited! Tomorrow El Deafo is finally released to the world. I’m kinda terrified, too. Hopefully folks will like it, and it won’t offend anyone in the deaf/Deaf or hearing communities, and even the friends and teachers I wrote about in a not-nice way will say, “Oh, you were so right to write about me in that way, here’s some ice cream, let’s let bygones be bygones, and gosh, you’re so gorgeous now that you don’t have rabbit ears anymore.” I’d write more, but I just got home after a weekend on the road. Clearly I’ve gone to the dogs or something. Mmmm, wabbit stew!
And now this has nothing to do with the book, but I met WILLIAM WEGMAN this weekend and he TOOK MY PICTURE WITH HIS iPHONE. William. WEGMAN!!!
Here’s the picture he took:
I kid you not. Actually, let me confess that I have no idea what the picture he took looks like. I’ll also confess that I’m not very good at drawing on a Mac book touch pad with my finger. Must rectify.
THANKS for reading…and if I’m sane tomorrow I will post something about something!
