Burning Skies today, driving to Seattle tomorrow  
Word count: 9929 | Since last entry: 3176

Busy day today, ending with dinner with davidjwilliams and kzmiller before David's reading from his new book Burning Skies at Powell's.

The writing is going well but will plainly blow way past my 10,000-word budget before I'm done. Could be as much as 15,000. As I said, I see some places to cut, and I think the exercise will also tighten and swiften (if that were a word) the story.

Heading for Seattle tomorrow, to hang out with scarlettina and markbourne and e_bourne and attend the Clarion West party for matociquala at marykaykare's.

And that's enough namedropping for one blog post.

I guess we'll see you there, then.

The 2nd Sunday pub meet is the next day, if you're interested in such things.

To nitpick, you weren't dropping any names, only LJ handles.

? You didn't say anything, else I'd have come, too.

Oops--his reading, not yours. Must remember to check the Powell's list, now that I'm starting to try to build a habit of getting there....

We're juggling grandchildren this weekend with Shandra's assistance, so we won't make it to the Clarion West party.
