[personal|travel] Headed west once again

The Paradise Lost conference is wrapping up this morning. We had a great day yesterday, complete with a Howard Waldrop reading.

That was followed by a party last night, and me being up til about midnight.

Nice long walk this morning, featuring roosters, owls, a whole host of morning birds and one very insouciant raccoon. Some more conferencing, then I hit the road for home. Won't be in til about midnight West Coast time, which will be a bit rough on me.

I did manage to get two requested stories written this past week. One more to go, a little bit of WRPA, then I'll be on to Kalimpura revisions. Feeling pretty good about all that.

Be well, write more, have fun today.
