Life on Hold

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

I mentioned before that we were all not feeling very well. I’m mostly better, and so are the kids (Rachel a little more so, Vanessa a little less). Denise, on the other hand, is about the same, and it looks like she’ll stay that way for a while yet. So everything (including the writing) is on hold until things settle down. After having a crazy, exhausting week last week, this one is a lot closer to normal, but not quite there yet. I’m itching to get started on a number of things, but family comes first.

The Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy Returns

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007
The podcast about marketing your writing (any genre) has begun season two. The first new episode of Tee Morris’s The Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy since November was released yesterday. If you write, give it a listen.

DragonPage: Cover to Cover 2.0

Monday, January 15th, 2007
My first, and still one of my favorite podcasts, The Dragon Page Cover to Cover changed their format last week, and added Michael A. Stackpole to the mix. So far, so good. I haven’t heard this week’s episode yet, but it looks like they want some feedback on expanding book coverage beyond Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.

Sick

Monday, January 15th, 2007

All four of us have some sort of cold. Rachel is probably doing the best, which is unfortunate because she can run circles around us when we’re all feeling great, so now she has all this excess energy because no one will run around with her, and jumping about makes her cough. I’m trying to pretend I’m not sick to take care of everyone else, but it’s not always working.

My boss was nice enough to drop off my work computer at my house today, so at least I can get work done without infecting my whole office. I’m hoping to return to something a bit more normal any day now, but who can tell.
