Back to life

June 17, 2009

I just spent a nice few days in Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains with my family and inlaws (not as bad as it sounds).  I got no writing done.  I don’t think I got any ideas (though I got a great one off National Geographic before I left).  It wasa real vacation.

It was rough being away from the internet, only dropping by the chalet check-in office once for a fix.  I need to catch up this week.

I still haven’t heard from WotF, but my wife stopped the mail until tomorrow.  I am anticipating a rejection due to the late speculative element (page 4, not 1), but I refuse to abandon hope.

Speaking of abandoning hope, Clarion West begins on Sunday.  I gave up a long time ago on my attending, but the event’s arrival is a reminder that I’m missing out.  Humbug.  I left a nice “good luck” message on the old CW forum,though it seems largely inactive so it may go unread.  But I wish the best for Jordan, Rochita, Randy-the-Robot-Overlord, everyone else I met on the forum and everyone I did not.  I’ll be watching for CW diaries online, so don’t keep us in the dark (but don’t sacrifice your writing, either).

I still have eyes on next year.  Until then, back to the keyboard.

    Yeah, the forum is inactive because they set up a Google Group for us that we’ve all been using.

    I wouldn’t give up hope until Tuesday. I seem to recall a year where someone bailed on the second day.

    I would be hard pressed to make it at this point. Life and plans move on. It would be a hard offer to decline, but it might be harder to accept. Honestly, I’m at the point of hoping the phone doesn’t ring…not for that.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Yeah, I suppose SUPER short notice would be hard to manage. But it would be a soul-searcher, wouldn’t it?
