I should have expected that I wouldn’t have written at Icon this weekend. I did dutifully take my work with me, and dutifully ignored it. Still, we’re back in the saddle. As I work on my write for the next several days, I will be concentrating solely on Hulk Hercules, as I am determined to have the draft in hand and in others hands before I go on the wrestling field trip.
At this point, Kizmet and Mark are going to look it over for me. My pastor wants to read it. She’s a good soul, but she just wants to read it. Bryon is also going to look at it, and I’m sure he’ll have some plot ideas, because he’s clever like a fox.
Tonight, then, my time will be divided quite nicely between HH:PW and domestic chores, including the allergy conversion of our bedroom.
Just sent off Two Vampires and a Panel Discussion to Abyss and Apex.
Soon (today?) the next piece of Blood is Thicker than Water will be posted at Las Habladoras. We begin chapter 4, which introduces Chip Hyland.
I had a great time at Icon. I want to thank all my VERY SUPPORTIVE friends who came to watch me read. As at Convergence, a squad of people I knew walked into the room just as I was beginning. This time, about twenty people wandered in, some I didn’t expect. One of my creative writing students came from a couple of years ago. THAT was awesome! So, thank you. If only I could pay for all of you to follow me around to various US conventions 😛 )
The rest? Vote early and vote often tomorrow.
