Dave Freer posted two interesting things that i thought I’d mention. http://davefreer.livejournal.com/73720.html on his feelings after finishing something. And http://davefreer.livejournal.com/74253.html what he wants to write in the future. Editors and publishers interested in the latter should call me immediately.

I am considering some of the things from the last post, unfortunately time and functional gray matter are scant. So noting the lack of wit of my own, today’s offering for your discussion: “The penalty for success is to be bored by the people who used to snub you.” Nancy Astor and “In real life, […]

So what do you want?

Ok, half of the reason I’ve posted so little since getting home from Worldcon is that I’m busy, the other half is just that i don’t have anything interesting to say that doesn’t require absurdist levels of four letter words. so who has something they want to see me discuss, or do on a regular […]

you know you’re having an interesting day when…

…the best part of it so far is talking to one of the reps at Microsoft. She was amazingly pleasant, professional and courteous. And replacing my disk through them was less expensive than buy about 70% than any other place i saw. Now i just need to get my external hard drive fixed/replaced.

Hmmm

For those of you on Facebook who have friended me, how hard is it to find my occupation? Or intuit it? I had a post in a group that shall remain nameless deleted because they said there was no mention of my being an agent in my profile.

O:-)

I don’t normally do politics. And it’s been an interesting year to abstain from such, but this is entirely to funny not to share. Besides, I can justify it to myself by saying it’s good brain fodder for the urban fantasy and mil sf writers. Really, its a public service. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/aug/21/uselections2008.barackobama

While this is probably old news to everyone other than me, Pyr in their wisdom has decided to add the sensational James Enge to their blog. So when you aren’t worshiping his words at his LJ, or Black Gate, or Flashing Swords you can join him and some moderately well know folks blogging at the […]

… from this day forth I will consider all stories in which the Denver airport, and Super Shuttle HQ are blown up extra cool.

I just got an auto call from the airline saying my flight has been canceled. I’m now on a flight that was scheduled earlier, but now leaves later and (in theory) arrives earlier. I should probably call my ride… For those who missed it, Sartorias held a Bittercon over the weekend, and DaveFreer posted and […]

Despite not getting more than four hours sleep between the end of day three and when realized I needed to move to make it to my 10am panel, I did make it. I have no idea if we made any sense, i have no idea if i made any sense. The panel to me spent […]

Denvention…day three

Yes, this is really late. Day three was like today a day where there were no scheduled panels for me. It was also a busy, busy day. The only important meetings were with the Chairs of Conjecture and Lunacon. We talked about a couple idea’s and people who wanted to be there. Later i had […]

Yesterday was fun, and all the set work was done by two so I relaxed a bit more the rest of the day. The morning panel The Agent Behind the Curtain was a bit more general than I expected, but probably what the audience needed. Joshua Bilmes did a fantastic job moderating, Eleanor Wood contributed […]

Yesterday’s  Shmoozing 101 panel was fun. Unfortunately Ginjer Buchanan wasn’t with us, but thanks to Mary Robinette Kowal and John Sclazi, it was a fantastic panel. I like panels that don’t suffer from dead air and panic as people realize they will have to actually talk instead of just sit at the table and hope […]

Well I made in one piece. I even managed to sit still on the plane for about five hours. I think I even kept the counter rotation of my feet down to six times an hour. An amazing thing happened happened. Not one of the twenty or twenty five kids on the flight cried once. […]

I actually managed to leave my house a bit early today. Which is good, otherwise i would have ended up dithering around and packing another ten pounds of stuff into my bags. Not stuff i needed, but merely stuff I saw and couldn’t resist the challenge of trying to fit it into my bag. My […]

Eric, who won the cover letter contest chose to get the paperback of Pyramid Power which is due out the end of September. A fantabulous lady who is entirely too kind to a wayward bird i have an ARC of Slow Train to Arcturus to flash around at Denvention, Pi-Con and Conjecture! davefreer and jamesenge […]
