Getting notes from Dragon*Con track directors (*waves at bevlovesbooks*) with panel requests. It promises to be an extra busy convention this year. I wonder if it’s possible for me to go the whole thing without sleeping. Hmm. I suspect that would result in me hallucinating by the time of the Dead Dog party, which might be amusing in its own right, I suppose. ‘Course I might start hallucinating and babbling at a panel, which would be less amusing–at least for me. And I suspect my editorial skills would go out the window way before then.
New Words: Editing editing editing.
Did several passes on the story up for critique. It’s getting there. Feedback continues to be generally positive. A couple folks have commented that they didn’t like the flashback I used and would prefer to see things in sequence. Upon some consideration, I think they’re right.
But think of all the incredible stories you won’t remember 😉
I should’ve signed up for Dragon*con as a guest
But life got in the way. Bummer. Maybe next year.
Don’t worry boss. You just go ahead and crash out some and let your loyal and capable minion, The Badger Lord, take over editorial duties. Everything will be JUST FINE.
Heh heh heh….
Erm, yeah . . . I think I’ll just schedule a nice solid three or four hours of sleep a night.
Eugie, your story says it has adult language in it…how bad is it? Mild, moderate, bad?
Oh, wow, I didn’t even realize it had been flagged for “adult language.” Um, I did a quick tally: 2 “crap”s and 5 “hell”s used as expletives.
I’m inclined to call that pretty mild.
Oh, cool. I can handle that. 🙂
No, it is not possible for you to do Dragon*Con without sleeping. It is, in fact, expressly forbidden. Yup. *shudders at the thought* 😉
A: Yup, that’s my job.
B: That was fast.
C: The I.C. Mochas here at Panera are pretty darn good, and, wow, the straw makes me feel somehow inadequate.
D: Once again, wireless access proves a detriment to productivity.
E: There is, of course, no E.
