Time for something a little more personal …

No, I’m not dead, but I have been busy.

There has been knitting, which is taking up a lot of my time. It wouldn’t be such a bad thing if I wasn’t trying to write at the same time.

Writing will remain one the reason I bother getting up in the morning, but because the Archer is my sigil, lots of smaller passions crop up from time to time and temporarily consume me. Currently a passion is knitting. It is an activity I can do while doing other stuff - listening to audio books, watching bad horror movies, “keeping an eye” on my nephew, etc… I suspect it’s also because I have a weekly knitting group and I like to show progress when I go. When I belonged to a writer’s collborative (many years ago), I was churning out a short piece every week. Deadlines are what make me write, which is sad but terribly true. Give me a deadline and you’ll have it. Make me pose my own deadlines, and I’m toast.

Last night, my favorite remora asked me, “so, how’s the writing going”, which is always like a stab in the heart, especially when you haven’t been writing. So I answered truthfully, “slow”, and secretly wished him a painful death for bringing it up. There will be an Important Announcement shortly in regards to words and such, but I’m letting someone else handle it.

Chapter 5 (CDI) has been in my head for a while now and I’ve really got to get it down on paper. The biggest hang up for me is my laptop, which could be faster. It takes so long to boot up, I’ve generally wandered off to knit by the time the sign-in screen comes up. Yeah, yeah, if I could just scan all of my notes in and have them magically form themselves into chapters, the damn thing would be done.

A few weekends ago, I was in Chicago for the WizardWorld Comic Convention. I haven’t been to one of those since the Paradise Con in Toronto last April, and this one was much bigger than I was prepared for. Spent time killing my liver with RJ and nefarious plans were hatched. I’ll make a separate post about the BEST. DIVE. EVAR later.

Met some great people and managed to drop a few cards off to various tables. I want to do that again - swoop in, make contacts, leave cards and swoop out.

Currently preparing for Dragon*Con in Atlanta, so if you’re going, drop me a line and we’ll meet for drinks or hook up at the con to pimp our work.


Insanity in a nutshell

If you are offended by jokes made about stupid people who end up dead, count to 30 and move on. You being offended is the last thing I care about. Really.
