10/25/05: Briefly...

Editing continues apace. I'm about 1/3 of the way through on this pass -- things are going much faster now that I've answered some of the hard questions in the early chapters -- with a total word count increase of around 800 words. It's coming along nicely (though perhaps not as great a change as might have been hoped) and at this rate I should have no trouble finishing by World Fantasy Con.

Speaking of which, I got my program schedule for WFC. One panel, "A Maze Demands a Minotaur", at 8pm Sunday. No reading, alas.

I'm starting to get really conflicted about missing Orycon for WFC this year. I had hoped to be able to talk up my newly-sold novel at WFC, but once again I have a major convention and it's still in limbo. And I'm going to be missing a lot of friends at Orycon... and Kate, too, of course. Waah.
