How was your weekend?






I had a most enjoyable weekend. On Friday morning I drove through the rush hour traffic to give a talk at the Open Books Open Minds II, Literary Conference at Caldwell College.

Upon arrival, I prized my fingers from the steering wheel with even greater respect for Senior Management. I don’t know how she negotiates rush hour traffic several times a week without letting it affect her mood.

I thoroughly enjoyed my morning session, which was followed by a nice lunch and a mini-book fair, featuring the other folks who gave talks earlier in the day.

From there I dug out my passport and crossed the border into Pennsylvania, heading for Allentown and my fifth Write Stuff Conference (my first as a presenter). I love the family atmosphere at the Write Stuff. Everyone seems to go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I had fun hanging out with old friends and making new ones.

On the Friday evening, I sat on one of the page cuts panels, then gave two talks on the Saturday, followed by the book fair, where I got to use that clever Square thingy for people who wanted to pay by debit/credit.

Though I felt pretty tired when I got home, the positive energy from the weekend has me feeling mentally energized and raring to go.


How about you?

Not nearly so eventful as yours,
but I won't complain.

Lol, my old gran gave me some great advice about complaining:

"Don't bother, few people really care, most don't want to hear it, and one or two are even glad you have something to complain about. "

Of course, it never stopped her complaining herself ;)

Why did you need your passport for Pennsylvania?

This last weekend, I did battle with the after-flu cough and cussed out my PC several times.

The cough will eventually go away. I just have to keep on using the Vick's Vapor Rub, the Halls cough drops, and let my body do its thing.

As for my PC, as I type this, my CPU is at the repair shop, and I'm using Hubby's PC.

Not a terrible weekend, but it could have been better.

I'm glad you had fun. Someone nice should always get some good times in. :)

Sounds like you had an awesome weekend!

I was generating good will by helping out at Zenkaikon, an anime-centric convention in Lancaster, and I spent some time in the huckster's room promoting Philcon.

Same as usual for me. Got a solid 30k words into my serial and I'm down to five chapters (I hope) from the end. I'm looking forward to the end of this two year project. I got another commission, so I started planning that out. And getting my contingency plan moving for getting my book out this year which involved lots of back-and-forth between me and a cover artist. And, working on the font I'm hoping to typset the book in.
