Tasks / Go Get Em Tiger

Get her to say yes. Win his heart. Revive something romantic. Prove em wrong. Burn at both ends. Turn up the volume and impress the hell out of someone. Paint the town pink. Make a date with destiny and show up early while she's still putting up her hair.

Think about your story arc, the trajectory you've traced so far: where are you going? who are you becoming? Are you in this for a reason? March on Washington. Beat the devil. Go big or go home. Make a plan, show us your plan, work your plan, and make it happen. Vast is better than safe. Challenge is better than approval. Done is better than perfect.

Be inevitable. You have forty eight hours.

Now go get em tiger.

Best Task Ever

APE 2010 +9
posted by Kate Saturday on October 18th, 2010 9:24 PM

so, when i first saw this, i thought "oh, sure. it's all very well for you to say "go for it," you young people who have not yet realized that all striving is futile, and still think you can have what you love." once that was out of my system, i decided to go for APE 2010. I make comix and things (www.confoundedcontraption.com,) and this will be my first time selling at a major con.

hour 1-4: 10/16, 8pm-midnight. i don't really want to go to the mixer. maybe i should just stay home and work. NO! GO FOR IT!! I don't really know anyone... no one seems to want to talk to me... NO! GO FOR IT!! Hello Phillipa and Rembrant! it is a pleasure to meet you Ali! Hello Tim! Hi, Bridgitte and Judy and Nelson, I've read your strip! A pleasure, Claire and Crow! Sorry we couldn't talk longer, Meredith! So good to meet you Becky and Barry! Yes i would like to know what a minyan is, and i would be happy to give you a ride home.

hour 5-7 bind more books! make more copies of stuff! gather everything you can think of to sell! go for it!

hour 11-14 take BART! you love the environment so drive less! yes it is time consuming and confusing but go for it!

hour 14-22: oh, no one wants to buy my stuff... i'm not as professional or flashy as some of these people... NO! GO FOR IT!! hey, passers-by! look at my dinosaur hat! look at the fancy sign i painted! come over here and pick up my books, you know you want to!

hour 23: maybe i should not go see Renée French speak. no, that is a silly idea. they are asking for questions, but i'm sure my question is not so interesting... i should not draw attention to myself... NO! GO FOR IT!! Thank you Renée French, i'm glad to know that about your work! and yes, guy behind me, it is funny that you were going to ask the same question!

hour 24-32: i still need to bind more books for tomorrow... should i go to the after party? i'm not so good at parties...NO! GO FOR IT!! yes it is loud here and super crowded and i have all my bulky boxes with me and i feel dumb about that! but James from Isotope is the nicest guy ever and i'm glad to have met him! i did not meet anyone at this party. i probably could have gone for it more. mostly i talked to Becky who i met last night, because she is great. carry all your boxes to the bart station now, i don't care how hard it is. this is your job. oh the cat is stuck on the roof. ok i will save you but then i am going immediately to sleep.

hour 39-42: oh my gorp the weight of my tiredness presses down on my back and shoulders. i am pushing through a molasses flood of fatigue. I DO NOT CARE YOU MUST GO FOR IT. COME AND LOOK AT MY COMIX PEOPLE DO IT NOW.

hour 43-44.5: should i go see Renée French and Lynda Barry talk about visual storytelling? the point is debatable, but ok. there are too many panelists and not enough time to really get into visual storytelling. should i take valuable question time by trying to push for a meaningful discussion? STAND UP AND GO FOR IT. that was not the discussion i was hoping for, but ok. Renée French is selling her book at table 226... should i buy it? i am poor! surely she does not want to take time to sign a book for stupid me. she would probably rather draw a picture in her sketchbook. WHAT DID I TELL YOU YOU MUST GO FOR IT! the cute girl who was also at both her panels made her a little dog! GO FOR IT!! I drew for her a sticker of the tiniest dog i could, and gave her a copy of my newest minicomic (told without words, as she talked about) and bought her book. she signed it with my name without my telling her what my name was.

hour 44.5-45: accost as many passers-by as possible in the last few moments. thank you so many people for buying my stuff! i do my best for you.

-hour 48: drive a friend home, eat dinner with Corpus Callosum and Becky from hour 3.
Conclusion: I did my best! i'm glad i did what i did!

maybe we are out of phase? our molecules vibrate at slightly different rates, and it's only through the medium of the internet that we can communicate? maybe you went to an entirely different APE, with different underground ladyspeakers like Kate Beaton and Marjane Satrapi.

This is beautiful. I want to make this happen, but I'm not there yet.

But I know I'm on the path to it, and that's beautiful enough for me.

For now.

I want to do this. Like. Badly. But I know I cant (beyond level restrictions) maybe someday.

How SF0 helped change my life +2

So, it started here, with a surpraxis completion - somewhere during this exploration, I picked up a lovely chunk of rusty metal with a big round hole near the top, strung it up, and wore it as a necklace. I'd been wearing rusty metal junk as necklaces for years, but this was the first time I remember gathering one up specifically to wear as a souvenir, a memento of a wonderful day spent doing something wonderful with a wonderful person.

It progressed here, which is the real catalyst for the whole thing. From this time on, tasking or not - climbing bridges, exploring buildings, walking the streets - I was scavenging constantly with the aim of making the lost bits of City into wearable adornments, so we should be reminded that nothing we can put together with our hands, however grand, will ever be permanent. Looking back through my completed tasks done after this, I remember coming back with pocketsful of orphaned hardware from almost every one of them.

And now, for a year and a half I've been the owner of a small business, Urbex Archaeology, in which I find the discarded, forgotten, unwanted pieces of the things we once so carefully built, and endeavor to make them useful and beautiful again. Everywhere I travel, small pieces of those places come home with me, are reconstructed, and sent back out into the world to live another life.

I can't say for sure this wouldn't have happened without SF0, but I can definitely say it took the course it did because of SF0. So many of my fellow players were enthusiastic and supportive of my early work, and they were undoubtedly the people that made me realize there were others out there who would appreciate my vision and want to share in it. I'm far from making a living with my business - though I think maybe I could do so, given time - but it does support itself, which is all I can ask for. Thank you, SF0 friends and family - I love this place, and I love you.

This is 400 points of write up. As such, it will be long and full of personal details. Also note that there will not be many exciting pictures. Thats because sometimes, documentation interferes with one's ability to experience. If this is not enough ...
