I Go to Be Among My People

I depart for WorldCon anon.  For them as are interested, here’s my schedule again, with one addendum:


Thursday, August 30

3:00 pm — 5:00 pm  Volunteering at the SFWA Table (Dealers’ Room)

Stop by and say hi.


Friday, August 31

3:30 pm – 4:00 pm  Reading (DuSable)

I’ll be reading from “Odd Jobs.”  And remember my motto:  Come for a treat, stay for a tale!


Saturday, September 1

12:30 pm — 2:30 pm  Writers’ Workshop L

I understand that all workshop slots are now filled.


Sunday, September 2

1:30 pm – 3:00 pm   The Resurgence of Pseudo-Science in 21st Century America (Crystal C)

From Creationism/Intelligent Design to Astrology, non-scientific concepts seem to be capturing the population’s imagination once again. What is causing this rise of anti-science and what, if anything, can be done to stop it?


Soon, I will be among my people once again.  So heads up, Chicago!  The Geeks are coming!

Progress Report, in which I ask for a meat cleaver

Active WorldCon prep going on here, in the form of critiques for the writing workshop.  Two down, one to go.

No time for chat.  Too busy eviscerating other writers’ hopes and dreams.  I’m sure you understand.

No updates for Write Club.

Hand me that meat cleaver, wouldya?

Current Music: "Watch Over You"--Alter Bridge

Progress Report, in which I don’t get overly technical

In a bit of a pre-WorldCon scramble here, so I’ll be brief:

Accomplished various administrative . . . things . . . last week.  Not to get overly technical on everyone.  But yeah, I caught up on some correspondence, finally decided on what I’m reading at WorldCon, and got a really cool idea for the new novel—a plot twist that surprised the hell out of me.  Maybe it’ll surprise readers, too.

I’ll probably be spending much of this week critiquing stories for my writing workshop section.  That’ll certainly keep me busy.  With any luck, maybe I’ll get in a bit more Dream Time, too.

No updates for Write Club.

Gotta run.  WorldCon looms . . .
