I got home last night after midnight, Pacific time. 22 hours after I had awoken in Greensboro, NC. Damn, I'm too old for this shit.

Day Jobbery went well in NC. We had a moderate comedy of errors around rental car issues on leaving the client site, which caused my cohort to miss his flight back to Omaha. I made my flights, had some good luck on seating arrangements, got in a bit of writing and a ton of reading, and got home in one piece, albeit very, very tired.

By pre-arrangement, I'm going in late to work this morning. Even so, afterwards I am headed for the Cascade Writers conference for a pro stint. I don't like going into a writing event as exhausted as I am today, especially since I need to give a lecture tonight on revision.

I'll be fine, just meh. No down time for the wicked.

Good thing I've got lots of energy!

Glad you survived us and that things went well. I hope you have fun at the conference. I know you are working, but still.

Important point for your lecture: "Leave enough time for revision and don't do it when you're as tired as I am right now." :-).
