Is it here yet? Did Bob post the newest episode of The Wizard of Wu, Mr. Wu’s exciting adventure, yet? No, Oh heck…my boss just went by again and saw the pandas on my screen. Okay, wait… Yay! It’s here!
Binky and Pinky and Bunnies, oh my!* Mr Wu is in for it now! He is going to have to follow the cuppycake road, in order to find the Wizard of Wu, who will help him (we hope!) find his way back home to his family and some of that happily ever after stuff. Is this getting exciting or what? WE don’t even know what is going to happen next or who Mr Wu will meet along the way. Or is that “whom”? Anyway, we’re in for a bumpity ride!
In other exciting panda satire news…..
There has been a small bit of movement on my wordless children’s picture book, Pandamorphosis. I don’t want to reveal too much before it’s time, but no matter what the Chinese calendar says, I believe that next year will be the year of the panda. Huzzah!
I will tell you a bit about Pandamorphosis’ news in my monthly newsletter that I hope to have out…um…next week. So, if you’re not signed up yet, just get yourself up to the top of the right-hand column and make sure you’re signed up! Newsletter subscribers get the news first, even before the panda kindergarten. Don’t worry about signing up twice. The smart folks over at MailChimp won’t let you do that. Also, if you used to get The Panda Chronicles in your inbox or news reader, your subscription went away when I switched to a self hosted website (here) so you will need to re-sign-up if you want to get this sent to you. Hey it’s free, and this way you don’t have one more thing to remember to do. Again, the sign-up is at the top of the right-hand column.
But Wait, There’s More!
I’m taking part in Dana Sitar’s ManiWriMo, which stands for National Manifesto Writing Month, which is inspired by NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) both of which take place in November. She has formed a group of (mostly) writers to spend the month writing their personal manifesto, as a group, with the goal of publishing it as an e-book. You don’t have to publish, but as a long time artist, I know how valuable a tool this is in clarifying your creative vision, to yourself, as well as others.
The title of my Pandafesto (you know I had to change this to a panda word, didn’t you?) is:
Letting Loose the Bears: The Panda Chronicles’ Guide to Embracing Your Inner Panda.
I think there will be cartoons in the pandafesto, in order to illustrate some of my key points.
If you’re interested in joining in with your own personal manifesto (or pandafesto) there’s still time. It’s free, it’s fun, and you might get clarity about your creative goals, and maybe even a book! Join me at ManiWriMo!
Be the Bear!

PS: Thanks for joining me here at the Panda Chronicles. While this content is free for you and everyone else to enjoy, I would love it if you decided you wanted to have the pandas come to stay with you, in book form, of course. (those pesky zoos won’t even let me have one for the weekend!) Just click on one of the handy buttons in the right hand column, which will take you to Amazon, where you can buy one or more of my books. Huzzah, and thank you!
