. . .nor dead yet, either, to the apparent disappointment of some. I don't suppose this is the only career in which we eat our elders, still. . .
So, let's see. . .
First, thank you so much to all of the supporters of our Patreon fund, particularly today, because -- you made the funding goal this month. Give yourselves a big hand and, for those who are limber, a pat on the back. Steve and I really appreciate your generosity.*
On the writing front, I have decided to indeed to push on to the end of the scene, rather than hold back and hope that being in media res would make re-immersion after the projected break easier. 'Twas the tea tin that did it, and you all now know what to blame.
On the all-important clothes front, I see that my problem of having too many t-shirts is solving itself, and the timing couldn't be better, what with a convention and a time among the tourist attractions coming right up. rubs hands in anticipation
Y'all do know that Steve and I will be writer Guests of Honor at Confluence next weekend, right? (Here's the link.) Among the other festivities, Steve will be doing a reading from a work not yet announced. I will be reading "Emancipated Child," which I've never had a chance to read to a live audience, so I'm very excited, and! I will also be. . .giving? my rant regarding the writing of "believable female characters," which is something I thought I'd never do again, but -- never say never.
Steve and I will also be doing a GOH presentation, a kaffeeklatsch, a Friends of Liad breakfast (not a con-event; every attendee pays for their own breakfast), and lots and lots of stuff -- and that's just us! Honest, you've gotta come to Confluence, if you possibly can; it's going to be a great weekend.
Looking to see you -- yes, you! -- there!
And now. . .to work, with a side order of prelim packing.
*This does not mean that we are not appreciative of the generosity of All The Rest of You -- we are very grateful for all and everything you do. Thank you!
