I seriously think there may be no way to recover if Trump is elected. I think global warming will be impossible to come back from under a Republican controlled government, so it literally might be the end of the world. I also think there will be a major recession, and I will never get a job in Providence so I will have to move back in with my mother in Delaware where I will just be miserable (I'm JUST starting to like Providence too, so I'm trying to make this city WORK FOR ME DAMMIT)!
Tillie Walden, one of my best friends and comic superstar, wrote me a very sweet email about how I need to calm down about the election because I will still be making great comics regardless of the outcome. It was sweet and I was touched in the midst of my anxiety attack.
OKAY THERE ARE KNOTS IN MY CHEST JUST FROM WRITING ABOUT THIS, SO MOVING ON:
The Halloween Market I tabled at was actually really fun, which I was not expecting at all! I even tabled by myself for an hour and a half and still had a good time. Sales weren't great, but I made back my table money. It's weird, each sale was so much exciting because I was selling to people who aren't already comic fans. Something about crossing that bridge to sell to the common person who isn't part of the really small comics community is thrilling. It makes me feel like my work might have mainstream appeal. Also, Betsie was awesome to hang out with, so overall a I had really good time. It saved my birthday actually (it was on the same day).
