How's your weekend shaping up?






After a somewhat depressing three hours in the dentist chair on Friday morning, I'm having an excellent weekend so far. On Friday afternoon, I treated myself to Darth Vader's voice on my TomTom GPS. It's worth driving past your turn just to hear him say, 'Do not disappoint me again'


Yesterday morning, I went to do a 'Meet the Author' talk at the WH Walters Library in Alpha, NJ. I've had my name on flyers outside a library before, but never on a proper sign. Definitely a 'Savor the Moment' moment. I met several young writers, one 14-yr-old lad had even written a complete novel. Definitely someone to keep an eye on!



In the afternoon, I moderated an NJAN panel/Q&A at Edison Library, NJ, with fellow New Jersey Authors Network members, Hildy Silverman, Gary Frank, Jim 'JJ' Lair and Dan Wilensky. Great fun, as always.

This morning, I reached another milestone in my quest to get in shape (or at least into a somewhat less round shape). The Wii Fit managed not to sound too surprised when it informed me I've lost 25 pounds since the end of January. I'm now just 13 pounds from my ideal weight. All in all, a good couple of days.

How about you?

Spent Saturday at the semi-annual Chiller Theatre autograph and collectible show in Parsippany, NJ. I've been attending this convention faithfully since 2000 along with my fiancee who is also a fellow autograph collector. It has moved twice since then but I hope it remains at the Parsippany Hilton. It's a very nice area.

Some of the celebs included Dean Cain, Parker Stevenson, Bob Gunton, Richard Lynch and more. Here is a quick recap with pics:

We were home by 3:30PM which was plenty of time to write another 2,000 words in the first SF short story I'm working on for an anthology due out late next year. All told, not a bad day.

Conversely, today I'm housecleaning. Talk about highs and lows....

Housecleaning is a great way to occupy your conscious self while thinking about story ideas :)
