August Wrap-Up & September Goals

This month slipped away from me pretty fast, like the rest of this summer has, since time has basically ceased to have all meaning. I’m still working from home full-time, I’m still doing a lot of reading, and I’ve done some solid work on book 7 that I’m pleased with. All travel plans through theContinue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

Time has ceased to have any meaning. Or is it just me? This was supposed to go out yesterday, but I had a bit of a weekend and losing myself in romance novels seemed a healthier option. But I’m here now, to entertain you with all of my exploits! /checks notes Apparently there is stillContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

Con Report: Virtual Balticon 54

Last weekend, I did my hair, put on clothing that had nothing to do with working out, and attended (virtual) Balticon 54! I participated in four excellent and informative panels from the comfort of my own office with appropriate feline supervision. Perks to a virtual convention: Sleeping in my own bed, eating decent meals, notContinue reading “Con Report: Virtual Balticon 54”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

/looks around Wow, it’s been a month. So, nothing’s really changed around here. I’m still working from home. I’m still reading a lot and playing too much World of Warcraft. Despite my introvert tendencies, I’ve now missed two conferences, and I miss hanging out with people in person. I have not yet grown my ownContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

Cleveland ConCoction 2020 Cancelled

Based on guidance I received from my employer last week, I had already (with great sadness) withdrawn from attending this year’s Cleveland ConCoction. Later that same day, the announcement came out that the convention was being cancelled. I know this is a stressful and scary time for everyone, for a variety of reasons. I’m luckyContinue reading “Cleveland ConCoction 2020 Cancelled”

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

Happy Leap Year! If January 2020 lasted about a millions years, February 2020 only took about 5 minutes. My month has been full of useful and not-so-useful productivity (yeah, I started playing World of Warcraft again), but it was also filled with good books and lovely times with friends, so what more can a girlContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

Con Report: Farpoint 2020

I attended my third year at Farpoint in Baltimore, Maryland, this past weekend and had an absolute blast spending time with friends and being a panelist on some of my favorite topics. I wish I’d been able to hang out more in the evening with people, but I commuted from home this year and hadContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2020”

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

This year is off to an EXCELLENT start, if I do say so myself. I got lots of reading done. I got lots of editing done. I played a lot of video games. And I’m thrilled with my health progress. I know I said I wasn’t travelling anywhere, but I managed to sneak away toContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

Con Report: Starbase Indy 2019

Looking for the full slide set for my “Alternate History: Creating Stories by Changing the Past” presentation? See below! Usually I try to have my convention reports posted on the Wednesday after the con, but this month I had the crazy idea that I could do two events in a row. So because I traveledContinue reading “Con Report: Starbase Indy 2019”
