[personal] In other news, the weekend that was, and what comes next

Whew. What a weekend. Not hardly over yet. Now going through a very tight, low level edit of Pinion (third revision pass this month, if you’re keeping score). came to visit, which was delightful, but she finally fled this morning in the face of my obsessive manuscript obsessing. (We did manage to get out for a lovely Greek dinner last night, which may or may not have enjoyed.)

For the last couple of hours I have been off Pinion and prepping for the trip starting tomorrow. Omaha through this coming Friday for Day Jobbery, Orlando over the weekend for the ICFA conference, Winter Park, FL Monday and Tuesday for a writer in residence slot at Trinity Prep, Dallas Wednesday and Thursday for some Day Jobbe client meetings. Home Thursday evening, then off to San Francisco Friday afternoon for the -a-palooza at Borderlands on Saturday March 28th, then some time with before I light out for China for half the month of April.

You can imagine the packing and logistics involved in all of the above.

Now I must do some writing related program activities, then back to Pinion for a couple of more hours before I can crash in time to get up at 3 am and start my coast-to-coast tour. Because in all of this I have to turn Pinion in and get the Endurance outline done, as well as several smaller projects.

You all play nice while I’m gone, because you never know when I’m going to drop by.

  1. I’m going to be in Tianjian for April. If you’re going through Beijing it might make sense to meet up if we both have the time.

      I’ll be in Beijing 4/8 and 4/8, and 4/18.

  2. Well, let’s keep in touch and see if we can manage to meet up. I’ll be an hour’s train ride away, give or take, and might well have excuses to get to Beijing for a day.

      It would be the evening of Saturday, April 18th if we did this. Bridget Coila wants to get together as well. Maybe sponsor a writer dinner that night in Beijing?

  3. That would be pretty cool, and we could be really snobby about it while eating things totally disgusting to our readers who would actually be laughing at us. Yes, I eat the chicken feet, duck tongue, and the sea cucumbers (which are not vegetables, BTW)…
