Facebook Ate March (and Half of April)

  • I spent last weekend in Bradford at Eastercon. It was delightful and a good kick in the “write more!” pants, as cons usually are.

  • I had a birthday! It was swell.

  • Also swell: I sold two stories, “The Prettiest Crayon in the Box” to GUD, and “Where the Time Goes” to Asimov’s. I submitted the first (unfinished) draft of “Where the Time Goes” during week six at Clarion West 2005, but just came up with an ending during revisions this fall.
