if you make your bed in hell I will be there

I am very sad that I just had to turn down an opportunity to speak at SXSW interactive, because I was already committed to the Tucson Festival of Books. Because dude, talk about awesome.

However! I will be one of the guests of honor at Gaylaxicon over the Halloween weekend in Montreal, and I hope to see some of you there. (And perhaps go gothing once more?)

Proof copies of the secrit projekt (Which is called, predictably, Veronique is Visiting from Paris) I did with kylecassidy just arrived. We're still working on distribution and packaging, but the actual content looks gorgeous. Now I need to send these out to people I mean to importune for blurbs...

It has been one of those mornings that's really quite productive, even though no words have gotten written. I'm at a point with the scene I need to write where I know what it needs to do structurally, but the actual narrative content is a mystery to me. ($subantagonist needs to make contact with $antagonist, provide information to same, receive instructions, and get sinister all over the page. But the mechanics of the scene--what happens, as opposed to what it must accomplish--elude me.)

However, I did answer a ton of business email, buy my plane tickets for the TFOB and Shadow Unit Staff Meeting (aka CupCakeCon), and eat way too much brunch.

And the Snowpocalypse has finally arrived, which is good, because I need to shovel off some of that toast if I'm going to earn hot cocoa and schnapps later on. Snow, little snowpocalypse! SNOW!

All right. Time to make tea and quit faffing about. At the very least, I should be staring at this scene if I cannot yet write it.
