About Half-Way There

Posted on: 2 Comments

If I’m aiming for the original word count of 120k, I’m at the halfway mark, but I’m not quite ready to call it 120k yet, so:

60075 / 100000
(60.08%)

Either way, I’m doing pretty awesome. First draft won’t be done in time for WorldCon like I’d hoped, but hopefully soon after that. I should be able to concentrate more once the kids are back in school. They were gone most of yesterday, at the pool with friends, and I got a lot of work done when the house was silent and I didn’t have to prepare lunch.

So things are going well and I’m finally starting to reestablish a pace of sorts, not quite up at the 3k a day I’d been hoping for, but pretty close. I’m averaging over 2k a day at the moment.

In other news, WorldCon is just about two week away now. I’m not on any programming, which means I get to relax and go watch my friends wax philosophical on numerous subjects. It should be good times, though if Reno is anything like Vegas, the BarCon portion could be much different than at previous WorldCons (less cozy and a lot louder).

Convention Photos Now Up at the FB Fan Page

I’ve uploaded photos from the various conventions I’ve been to since 2008, included the ones from World Fantasy in Columbus this last year, which I’d never gotten around to posting up on Flicker. So head on over to the fan page to take a look, and if you’re on FB and know some of the people I didn’t tag in the albums, feel free to tag away.

One WFC Membership for Sale

Posted on: 1 Comment

I’m currently trying to sell the World Fantasy Convention attending membership I purchased back in November, for it looks like I’m unlikely to be able to attend this year. I’m selling it for the $125 I spent for it, which is $25 cheaper than the current rate. Rates increase again March 31st.

WFC 2011 will be held October 27th-30th in San Diego, California, and the guests include Neil Gaiman, Shawna McCarthy, Ruth Sanderson, Parke Godwin, Jo Fletcher, and Connie Willis (toastmaster). Membership caps at 850 and from what I’ve heard more than half of the memberships have already sold.

If you’re interested in purchasing this discounted membership, please use the contact page to email me.

Update: Membership is no longer available. Thank you!
