[writing|conventions] Off to RadCon, Endurance notes

I'm off to RadCon this afternoon. Carpooling with [info]camillealexa, which will be nice. Supposed to go on a Hanford tour Friday morning — those have always been fascinating. Then programming begins, and a nice long weekend with a thousand of my closest friends.

I'm most of the way done with the Endurance copy edits. Next week I'll commence working on the next chunk of Calamity of So Long a Life. I may put it off a day or three more to knock out a short story, but in any case I'll be writing. Depending on how RadCon goes, I'll get the copy editing done as well as that possible short project done while I'm there. I'm not holding myself to any hard expectations on that.

There's been an interesting dissonance in reading Endurance for copy edit. I finished drafting Kalimpura not so long ago, and I keep seeing ahead, as it were. Asking myself idiotic questions such as, "Why did Green do this when she already... Oh, that's the next book." The dangers of multivolume projects, I suppose.

I love writing at this pace. It feels good. After the chaos and stress of the past year and more, I really hope I get to hang on to this feeling, this state of energy flow, for quite some time to come.
