I’m writing…I’m writing… (say this in the singsongy “we’re walking” tone).
Got up this a.m. later than I expected. Gray clouds obscured the sunrise, so my body didn’t quite twig to the fact that it was morning yet.
Spent the last three hours on Blood Bargain, with a short detour to chat with the parents. I *finally* caught a break on something that had been nagging me in the book, so yay for that.
I expect to write for a wee bit more, then
and I have a phone date to nail down our hotel details for The Trip*. Afterwards, I’m heading to pick up L and CS as today is Dan’s memorial service. It’s in Mt. Ranier, MD, a location I’m not familiar with, but I’ve updated the GPS and am ready with a printed Google map, too. (yes, I’m a Virgo. Why do you ask?)
In other news, I’ve got my panel assignment for Malice Domestic. I’m moderating a panel entitled “Touch of Woo-Woo: Paranormal Mysteries”. Joining me will be Lorna Barrett, Lillian Stewart Carl, Casey Daniels, Carole Nelson Douglas and Elena Santangelo. The panel is at 10:30 Saturday a.m. (April 26).
I got my flyer for World Fantasy this week. It’s in Calgary, Alberta and I’m aching to go, but sadly, I doubt that I can afford two West Coast Canada trips the same year. I’m really bummed, because the topic this year is Mystery in Fantasy, which is what I write. Maybe I’ll get lucky and get a windfall. ::g::
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
