I finished the tax journal for authorpreneurs today! I had promised people that it would be ready for Can-Con, and it will be. Barring printer problems, idiots at customs and so forth, of course. I don’t have a table at Can-Con, so I’ll have a few in my bag and a box in my room, …

It’s been ages since I posted, I’ve been crazy busy, and the world has just gone crazy. After my mom’s wedding a little less than a month ago, I worked a book fair, dealt with pain levels that would make a grown man sob hysterically, attended two milestone birthday parties, started a garden, had three …

So, it’s been long two weeks.  Maybe a long month, I’ve lost track. I went to New Brunswick on May 8th to help my mom with the last preparations for her wedding, meeting her groom for the first time. Eh, he’s OK, better treat her right, I know what he looks like now.   This …

I entered a short story contest put on by Radish a few weeks ago. Radish is an online story sharing app, kind of a pro-level Wattpad. Except that it just goes to Mac Apple products for now. (They are working on an Android app) I entered a short story based in my world for Nets …

Well, so far today. Major pain from being in town yesterday. I had a Dr appt, where she doubled my morphine dose (that’s always a good sign, right?), told me the xrays of my back revealed “significant erosion” from L5 to L3, and there wasn’t enough healthy bone left to try to operate to fix …

8000 steps yesterday, and every one hurt. I’m supposed to do 1500-2000 steps a day. I did 4-5 X that much. Owie! But I’m back, almost in one piece, and eager to get editing my fantasy epic.  April is Camp Nano, and I’ve chosen to edit my book so that it makes sense, tighten it …

Today I am starting to organize myself for the Beltaine Craft fair on April 23rd.  Yes, that’s a long ways away, and yes, I do need to start this early. Part of it is my chronic pain making the necessary bending and lifting almost impossible, and part of it is my #mybrainisajerk syndrome.  It works …

Easter dinner at the in-laws, nowhere near as bad as it sounds. Rare roast lamb, Caesar salad to die for, asparagus… and plenty of wine. It may not be thanksgiving, but I have much to be thankful for. Including the opportunity… nay, the duty…. to tease my niece about dating the son of one of …

As I sit here, arthritis and migraine in full swing, I think… “At least it’s Spring”.  Because it has to be damp and changing air pressure to hurt this bad, right? But the window proves me wrong. Or proves that old adage “In like a lion out like a lamb” wrong… BECAUSE… it is snowing …

This weekend the registration for authors writing in English opened up. Within 48 hours (taking time off from processing for food, family and Gotham) there was only one table left. One half-table. Wowsers! It was a great test of the process we worked out, and it worked! It was even pretty painless, with 2 minor …
