[travel] A bit more Crescent City, with conference and redwoods

Saturday morning in Crescent City. Had a lovely day at the North Coast Redwoods Writers' Conference yesterday. We had a great panel on biography in fiction, which I will podcast soon. I also read "The Dying Dream of Water," a short story from Original Destiny, Manifest Sin which originally appeared in Flytrap. (Speaking of that sort of thing, I got a nice fan letter today off "Tom Edison & His Telegraphic Harpoon" in the current issue of Weird Tales — it's also from Original Destiny, Manifest Sin.)

Had a story sale yesterday, which I'll announce details of once contract stuff is cleared. Today I'm leading a couple of sessions on how to know if you've succeeded as a writer. I'll probably podcast that eventually, too. We've got another group panel this afternoon, then tonight there's a wrap party for the conference. Home tomorrow by the slow road, up the coast on 101 from Crescent City to Newport, at least, maybe further if time permits.

Meanwhile, here's a couple of pics from yesterday.

As usual, there will be more at the Flickr set — just not yet, due to bandwidth limitations

More to come, time and bandwidth permitting.
