I did do some writing today, but word metrics were cut a off around 1200 words by fabulous weather … which prompted some long-overdue yard work. We’ve been really awful about keeping the place together over the fall/winter thus far, and things had gotten well beyond out of hand; but today it was in the sixties and comfortably breezy, so really, there was no time like the present to get out there and make some progress.
Progress occurred. And now I’m stiff all over, but I feel like I scarcely made a dent in all the things out there that need attending to.
Ah, well. I’d resolve to finish up over the weekend, except that my time will be merrily gobbled up by ConNooga! For lo, I am a guest – and I will be Working It.
ConNooga happens right here in Chatty – split between the Choo Choo and the convention center – and you can find me there, at the following panels:
4:00 PM Fri – (Con Center #15) Writing Believable Dialogue
7:00 PM Fri – (Choo Choo Roosevelt) Writing for a Series
5:00 PM Sat – (Con Center #15) The Writing Life and What it Takes
8:00 PM Sat – (Choo Choo Gallery B) Plot or Die! It’s a no-holds-barred Plot Off!
You can probably find me before, after, and between these panels too – but as far as I know, I won’t have a table or anything.
The usual rules apply: I’m happy to sign anything you bring, no limit on how many books or whatever. Don’t apologize for bothering me – you’re not bothering me! You are the reason I’m there. All I ask is that you wait until I’m not (a). eating, or (b). in the bathroom.
Oh! And one more thing – if you really want to put a smile on my face, mention that you pre-ordered MAPLECROFT. High-fives and eternal gratitude shall be yours!
As always, thanks for reading, everyone…and I’ll either see you at the convention, or catch up to you Monday in a digital fashion.
