Good morning, dino-mites! The author assistant agency (see my post from last month) has been buzzing with phone calls and barely able to keep up with the requests! They sincerely apologize for the delay and will try to do better in the future. Meanwhile, I've pulled some strings with the agency's president (a good friend … Continue reading Your Imaginary Assistant Has Arrived!
Good morning, dino-mites! I hope you’re having a great week, because I’m not. So you might want to wish me a bad morning because that's what it is. And the reason it’s a bad morning is because I’m suffering from the emotional aftermath of a T. Rexiffic time a couple weeks ago. Back in July … Continue reading Days in the Story Embers Office: The Week of the 68%
I’m a pretty versatile dinosaur. I can eat books or sit on Mariposa, and I can sit on Mariposa or eat books, so this is the perfect tag for someone as flexible as I am. I was nominated by one of my favorite bloggers, Jenna (you can visit her website here), and I thank her … Continue reading The Versatile Blogger Tag
Happy Almost Independence Day, humans! How are you doing today? Thanks to Mariposa and my recent giveaway, we lured in several new victims followers, and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and get to know you better. I’m Aberdeen; some people call me Abs and some Berdie, but most call me dumb. … Continue reading A Crazy Day in Mariposa’s Office: The Aftermath of Too Much Cake, Books, and Things to Do
Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who entered my giveaway. Secondly, Aberdeen would like to thank everyone who didn't enter the giveaway (gives him a better chance of winning). And thirdly, I'm simply stalling so you can die of curiosity. So, without further delay, the winner of the giveaway is... Aberdeen! (By the way, he … Continue reading And the Winner of the Giveaway is…
Every writer needs an assistant. Someone to encourage them, inspire them, and beat them over the head when they decide to watch YouTube videos instead of writing. This is why I’m here (mostly to beat my boss lady over the head, that is). I don’t know what Mariposa would do without me, honestly. I don’t … Continue reading The Imaginary Assistant Tag
About a year ago, I was plain frustrated with my author/illustrator career, and I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere. Aberdeen, though trying to be helpful by going after people and telling them to hire me, only succeeded in chasing off potential customers and making me go into debt (from all the people suing … Continue reading Release Day for A Visit to Oaklenbrooke Farm + Giveaway!
At one time, neither I nor Mariposa knew each other, and somehow, we survived without the other’s company (barely). I wouldn’t be the annoying, exasperating, stupid dinosaur assistant I am today if it wasn’t for her loving guidance and hollering at me. Nor would she be the stubborn, air-headed boss she is today if it … Continue reading A Day in Aberdeen’s Office: How I Met Mariposa
The past 360 days have been amazing—I can hardly believe I’ve been writing on this digsite and annoying you all for almost a whole year now! Seems like just yesterday I started reporting Mariposa’s unethical writing habits and giving you bad advice. Through it all, Mariposa and I have: 1. Written over fifty thousand useful … Continue reading Celebrating One Year at Dino’s Digest!
Contrary to the headline, this month is not the best month of the year. Organized Authorosaurus that I am, I write my posts a month in advance, which means whatever you’re reading now I wrote so long ago that I probably don’t even remember what I wrote. That means the headline is referring to April—which … Continue reading A Day in Mariposa’s Office: Celebrating the Best Month of the Year
