Other Stuff 

This isn't really Comic Con related but doesn't belong in its own post either. As some of you know, the Harry Potter franchise was looking to hire freelance writers for Pottermore this last week. (Cue heart eyes.) And I met their qualifications! It was like dream! I never imagined having a chance to apply for a job with Harry Potter. I pulled out my CV and started updating it. I didn't think I would get hired, but I thought I had a pretty good chance--enough of a chance to get a second, third, or fourth glance... and maybe get hired. They wanted pitches and samples of people's work, so I was going to pull those altogether too. And then, and then--they got so many applications, they closed before I could apply! I'm not surprised. But there was no way I could have gotten my application in earlier--it just wasn't in a position to send in. Darn. But let's just say that was a heck of a 12+ hours of my life that I spent on cloud 9!
