Can It Be True?

Oh.  My.  Gawd.

Those who know, know.

ETA:  Yes, it’s twue.  It’s twue.  It’s twue!

Progress Report, in which inspiration sneaks up on me

Last week’s writing time was mostly spent doing a couple of critiques that were due.  That can be a difficult slog sometimes, but you know ya gotta do it.

It paid off in an unexpected way, too:  inspiration snuck up on me when I wasn’t looking.  Isn’t that the way it always goes?

I haven’t had any time to play with this new idea yet.  I need to make a few minor tweaks to "Small Favors" first.  But I am feeling the first twinges of excitement that might indicate I’m onto something.  I’ll keep ya posted . . .

No updates for Write Club.

And I’m out.

Progress Report, in which I do some good

ConStellation, the first stop on the 2011 Rotundo World Tour, is now in the books.

It’s a small con, of course, in only its second year–but still quite enjoyable.   was Guest of Honor.  I enjoyed hanging out with him for a bit and helping to prove the superiority of fantasy.  Oh, and if you’ve never heard him read "The Creature In Your Neighborhood," his muppet werewolf story, you simply must rectify that at your earliest opportunity. 

Travis Heermann and Daniel Nielsen were there, too, and other friends old and new, too numerous to mention.  Much time was spent in discussions serious and not-so-serious, homebrew was consumed, good times were had.

My panels were surprisingly well-attended, too.  I did a creative writing exercise that seemed to go over well, and I got to lead a spirited discussion of Oscar’s long-running hatred of SF.  I feel like I might have done some good.  So that’s cool.

As is typical during a con week, I accomplished little on the actual writing front.  I’m still casting about for the next novel.  Must focus.

Yeah, yeah, I know.  What else is new?

Write Club update:  Tier one bounce from Analog.  Response time, about a month.

Moving on.
