This has been a very busy two months for me and while a lot has happened, the idea of sitting down and rehashing it all makes me very sleepy.
I attended CONvergence in St. Paul over the Fourth of July weekend and met and mingled with incredible people. I sat on panels and was generally well received. Most of them were recorded, and while the picture quality could have been a bit better, maybe I can lift the sound.
My writing group underwent some major restructuring and just when I thought things were going to get easier, I find myself the a Treasurer and Events Coordinator, and now the Head Editor for the tri-annual magazine. Yes it occurs to me that I can’t possibly do all of that and still finish the writing projects I have stacking up.
And with the last few weeks being one thing after another, I haven’t been terribly hot to rehash all of that happiness. How about we just stick to the stuff that was fun without being too exhausting.
Did a pub crawl with Scott Sigler this past weekend – and by pub crawl I mean we hit the Rock on Third in Royal Oak and crawled from the bar to tables as they became available. I do like that writing events not only draw avid readers, but fellow writers and the conversations at the tables. He read from his latest book, Ancestor and played perfect host in a bar where lots of people came out to see him.
Sunday did a charity walk with the Dead, which is be understood that I and select members of GLAHW took part in a Sunrise Fun Walk/Run held on the beautiful grounds of Mt Olivet Cemetery. It benefited the Make A Wish Foundation, and despite the fact that I’m hobbling around on a re-injured, not completely healed broken foot, it was a beautiful morning, and my cane is awesome.
Proof that I attended all of these events exists and I’ll get links to pics and blogs when I get home this evening, including names and the usual charm and wit you’ve come to expect from these pages.
