Why, yes, I did, because, well, I’m still me.
I was working on And Not To Yield and had a bright idea at five am, so I got up to write and, er… then we remembered that we need to take cat for x-ray. (Miranda. They want to x ray her heart before they give her more heart meds, so…) And then… I just remembered now.
Not my announcement to make, but the Oyster has a new little boy-oyster who seems healthy and doing well.
And I’m just busy with the sort of things that come up before a long weekend — like figuring out where we’re going to go for fireworks.
Then there’s the fact we didn’t put up a Liberty Tree and
Bob Hayte er my oldest son says we’re grossly unprepared for the high USaian Holiday.
Since I’m still myself, (I’m sorry, I thought I’d be someone better by now) I’m going to link some stuff for you to read.
Cedar did a Liberty Con After Action report. (Weirdly this time with no threats of lawsuits. Who knew?)
And for those of you who don’t follow Mad Genius Club, you should go over because Kate took on the Passive Guy’s impression of living in two worlds. The original article is very worthwhile (I’ve often felt like that at cons and panels, when another writer, sometimes someone I like and respect, but who is older than I, starts with “you know, the first thing you do is get an agent.” If they’re not people I like and respect, and or if they are impervious to hints, it’s all I can do not to yell “the nineties called. They want their publishing advice back.”) and you might as well give Kate some hits on the way there. (Mercenary, I am.)
And then there’s Dave Freer on Monday on what we shape and how it shapes us. Part of the whole “write what you want but beware what you write and whether it has the effect you want.”
