Ephemera and Update

So I missed a day of blogging, which might not seem that unusual because I don't post something here every day. But between this blog and the D.B. Jackson blog I had managed to post at least something each day of the year. Until Sunday. I was doing the single parenting thing (Nancy is on a work trip), and had managed to write a Magical Words post for Monday morning AND do the grocery shopping AND make dinner AND take a little time to watch some basketball AND stay up with my older daughter who needed to talk through some school/college stuff.

But only when I finally got into bed at about 11:30 did it occur to me that I hadn't written a post for that day. And by then I was too tired to get up and post something. I haven't missed day since, and I am going to try not to miss any more. But I'm a bit annoyed with myself.

On the other hand, I'm pleased with the work I'm getting done this week. I'm revising a book that I have worked on, on and off, for the better part of seven years. It has been through several incarnations and has a long and tortured market history. But I like the way it's coming together, and I think this might finally be the year I get it contracted. Hope so, because I think this is the last time I can rework it before I finally give up on it.

Other than that, I'm getting ready for MarCon next weekend in Columbus, Ohio, where I will be a special guest; I'm looking forward to having Nancy back home and (eventually) putting an end to this rather lengthy period in which we've been apart more than we've been together; and I'm enjoying this odd but lovely spring here in Tennessee.

Hope all is well with all of you.

Somehow missed the MarCon date. Of course also didn't know that it's no longer on memorial day weekend. Also missed that you were going to be there. The page only shows the main guests but, not you or Faith...

It would have been nice to catch up and I could have worked for Larry over the weekend as well.
I will see you at ConCarolinas and maybe ConStellation in Huntsville.

Sorry it won't work out for MarCon, Wayne. Looking forward to seeing you at ConCarolinas, though, and hopefully at Constellation, as well.
