State of the Meerkat: Preparing to Fly

Spent the weekend split between sorting and storing, and revising the novella. And poking my brain at the short story that due next month. Semi-productive, in small ways that don’t really have impressive-to-report markers.  :-( But we’re at 9 donations confirmed, and 2 more promised for #willwrite2feedothers! Four more people stepping forward to do something kind, and you …

Updatery, various and sundry

My only comments about the election are that with democracy, sometimes we get the government other people deserved.  Also, that not giving up/not losing faith is the best fuck you we can give to those who want to haul us back to the 1950’s (or 1850’s).

This is a weekend for working, not …

(unless you call some planning-Life-for-2015 work. Do we?) All in all, a very pleasant break between deadline achieved and deadlines oncoming. …

That was the week that was(n’t)

I have spent the past few days locked in the windowless Inner Circle of Hell that is the Javits Center, helping man the SFWA booth for Book Expo America. And yes the reading horde (comprising of bloggers, librarians, publishers, various and sundry publishing-related folk, and General Readers) were unleashed upon us, and lo we did …

weekend recap, mostly in photos.

Saturday I took off for one of the AlternOffices, and honestly, It was like having flashbacks to working my senior thesis, back in college…. (except fewer frisbees going overhead) That, because odds are maybe one person reading here will recognize it, is the southward view of Isham Park in Manhattan, what one fellow sun-soaker referred to as …
