Tell You What's Going On

Woke up this morning to find that the warm spell is over. There's about two inches of wet sticky snow on everything. I'll have to walk to the gym today. Still very busy trying to catch up with work, but I have to take a break before my brain turns to porridge. Coffee in a moment.

But I had a great time at SFContario 2. Met new people, had some great conversations, learned a lot about the craft, particularly short stories, and sort of got some perspective on where things are going with ChiZine. Speaking of which, several of the Chi folk seem to have picked up Auroras, for which we are very pleased, and I believe they were well deserved.

But I missed all that having to come home early to do work that showed up late on Friday and needed doing before Monday morning. Poop.

But one nice surprise on coming home was to find an email from art_ungulate saying that I'd sold a poem (The Screech Owl) to BULL SPEC!!! (Yes, it warrants the all-caps and three exclamation marks).

Now... where's that grindstone? My nose needs a little off the end.
