Today, Chapter XXXVIII of my life began.
After having survived past the midpoint of a year that’s really been more bad than good so far, I got to spend some time with some good friends, and had a chance to take a good look at some stuff on the horizon that makes me smile…
- I’m starting a new dayjob on July 15th. I’m working for the same uni health center, and I’ll still be pushing paper. But, as I joked to a friend today, I’ll be pushing higher-level paper at a higher pay rate!
- I just submitted my first piece of fiction for 2011 today. Given that (a) life has made it very hard to get into fiction-writing lately and (b) most of my writing time has been spent preparing for my presentation at this year’s Rod Serling Conference, I think it’s quite the accomplishment. It’s like a dam just broke. Which is good, ‘cos I got a lot more fiction planned for this year.
- In just 11 days–Readercon, where I’ll get to renew some friendships and revitalize my writing mojo like I did last year.
Y’know, things may just turn out all right.
