Made our reservations last night for flying to Montreal, so it looks like we'll be at Anticipation (Worldcon) barring hurricanes and airline hassles. I hope I'll be seeing some of you there!

This one's half done, I have to finish it. And that's a good thing, because I go through this mental game with every book I write.

Image by Thorne Enterprises via FlickrI had jury duty today. This is the fourth time I've been called to the voir dire, and I've never been seated. I think it comes from knowing so many attorneys. In today's session I knew the state's attorney, the two lead defense attorneys, and the judge. And I'm married to an attorney who's active in the Bar, so I'm known in those circles.
