A submission I made yesterday required a synopsis. I didn’t have one, and a quickly scribbled one starkly revealed all that was flawed with the story. Clearly I should write a synopsis as soon as I know shape of a story, and use the insight produced to improve the story.
I just wanted to mention that I’ll be attending WorldCon this year. Anybody else here expecting to be there?
“I might come into conflict with Nambiar, and I’m wondering if something might give me a bit of an edge—”
“No,” Charles said.
“Well, I’m no martial artist, and Nambiar could kick my ass—”
“No. He would not do that. He would simply kill you.”
“I gave odds you’d be here admiring this sculpture.”
At the princess’s nod, I looked back to the sculpture, in which Shiva’s arm reached around Parvati’s back to fondle her breast.
“Oh. Yes. Very much my sort of thing.”
“You and any man,” she said.
I have booked a room at the Hyatt Regency for myself and my brother @author_sdbrewer, and booked travel on Amtrak, to attend WorldCon.
If you’re going to be there, let me know! I look forward to seeing you!
Long after I probably should have done so, I have finally joined SFWA.
My brother @limako and I bought our memberships to WorldCon some weeks ago. If you’re in the sf world, you should come too! Membership rates go up May 1st, so you’ll want to join right away.
We just got word that the website for room reservations will open in less than three weeks!
Jackie and I went to Barnes & Noble for the first time since the start of the pandemic. I bought a copy of each of the science fiction and fantasy magazines they carry, with an eye toward re-subscribing to any that seem good.
I saw #writerslift on a twitter profile, and thought I’d found a community of writers who also lift weights. But no.
What with laundry, grocery shopping, fixing lunch (bone-in ribeye steaks), and then eating lunch, I had not gotten to my writing for the day. But now I am fueling up with a (probably unwise) energy drink and #amwriting.
