What did I get myself in to.

It will be work all weekend, except for a short moment Saturday.

I agreed to do a live chat on DeviantArt.

Oh crap.
Now I'm getting second thoughts.
I believe some of you have done that already. How did it go? How crazy does it get? Should I be scared????
(or at least, slightly worried?)
I just know I will make a fool of myself, ha ha! Story of my life.
Or worse, I will be extremely boring. Story of my life part two.

Ohh no, I'll be at work manning our annual sale during your chat! D: No fair, I would've been there in a heartbeat.

I'm sure you won't make a fool of yourself. Or be boring. XD Just wing it, you'll do fine! The only live chats with "celebrities" online I've been in on were really hectic, so I'd say go with short answers where you can, and don't worry too much if you're getting behind. :3 People will stick around to hear what you've got to say!

If all else fails, you could fangirl about Zhao~! ;D

(That aside, you could talk about what does and doesn't make a good comic. I'm noticing at least twice as often when people cut corners with the copy/paste thing, and it's maddening. Why would anyone do it?! -dies- Especially in comics that can get published!)

I'm not even sure what makes a good comic!
I've loved material where the drawing of the characters consisted solely of dots. The script was so much fun to read!

oh it's fun! it's definitely a typing excersize xD.

They make it to where only one person can chat with you at a time- people take turns asking one question.

Typing exercise?
I'll turn mine into a typo exercise, ha! I'm not super fast typer...type person...great. Now people will also have to deal with my lack of vocabulary.

You'll be fine. You're articulate and you write well, so don't sweat it.

I"ve helped moderate a couple of these back when they first started and I was an administrator on DA. They are pretty tame but lots of fun. You get an odd mix of serious and playful questions. My best advice is when possible try to keep your answers detailed, but not too long or you'll find you might get behind.
Also, just have lots of fun. The admins at DA are great and have done lots of these. They'll make it as enjoyable as possible. I'll do my best to swing by and have some good questions.

Thank you for the advice, that's golden!
P.S.- Did you get the books? I can't remember if you said you did.

They came yesterday and with the extras, that was so nice of you!
And they turned out fantastic.

Uh..that's 01.00 AM here...
There is a small chance I'll be there, if not I'll be fast asleep :-)

Mine was fun but nervewracking! I wasn't familiar with their chat system so I had to figure out what I was doing on the fly, responded incorrectly to a few people, haha... but they do a great job of moderating the crowd so that it isn't too crazy.

I don't really know their chat system either.
Oh great.
It's a given I will make mistakes, ha ha!

Chatting! Tee hee!
I'll try and catch the chat, even if I don't have any questions. It will funny to watch you chat without seeing your back in person.
And I'm sure you'll do fine. It's not like a speech: you'll simply answer questions _other_ people slaved to think up! Ha ha!

Re: Chatting! Tee hee!
Because you think I won't slave to answer them?
P.S.- will try to call you sometimes this weekend to say hello, when I take a break from work.

I don't know if I'll have anything interesting to say, ha!

Aww, you are always so nice and have interesting things to say so I think you'll do fine.

Have your sense of humor at the ready and if all else fails, Zhao fangirl them to death lol.

I'm locking up Zhao in a cage this weekend. He's not getting out.

Thank you for the good thoughts.

I think it's great! But I can also see why you'd be nervous... Have you thought about keeping a French-English online dictionary nearby in case only French comes to mind..? Also, if all else fails, just reboot the computer and say you're having net/computer issues XD

I'll be there if I can safely use my computer by then :)

If I can survive going to a school where the relationship with our teachers is based on "video-chatting", I'm sure you'll do well with this! :)

All the best
hug!

How was the live chat? :) It's a shame my internet connection dropped shortly after I joined it, sigh.
