Looking down the road apiece, I see a few things. I’m going mostly offline this weekend to work on some writing related program activities, prep for Tourbillion and catch some headspace. A blogging holiday, and mostly an email holiday. If that works well I may try to do it every couple of months.

Off to Omaha next week for Day Jobbe. Off to San Francisco the week after that for a trade show. The weekend after that I’ll be in Redmond, WA for Foolscap.

I expect to be back in Omaha three or four more times between Labor Day Week and the end of the year. I’ll be at FenCon in October, then World Fantasy at the end of October, then OryCon in November, which pretty much closes out the con season for 2008.

Next year I’m writer GoH at RustyCon, Toastmaster at RadCon, doing a writer-in-residence gig at an East Coast prep school, then going to China for two weeks in April with the_child, her mother and my parents. This will unfortunately cause me to miss Norwescon, which is the first time since 2000 I won’t be there.

I know I’ll be at WorldCon in Montreal and World Fantasy in San Jose, but my convention travel is otherwise going to be very limited due to the time and expense of the China trip.

There will eventually be a more official calendar, but all this is just in case you were wondering. You know.

You will be much missed at NorWesCon, but you have a blast in China.

China? Well that's almost Australia. I hope you have a fantastic trip. I see from your history that you have spent time in Asia in your youth. China has to be the last undiscovered country. Enjoy! I'm going to put it on my to visit list. I think Montreal will be my next foray into international fan forum. After Fiji of course.

China, what an amazing trip to experience. I can't wait to see the pictures I know you will take.

I just realized (while looking at my new calendar) that I am going to miss Foolscap...bummer. The mother-in-law will be in town and we must entertain her.
