This is not a complaint. I'm actually really happy with this weekend.
Saturday was normal enough. I awoke early-ish, fed the cats, got dressed, went to teach martial arts for two hours, returned home, did some writing work while listening to hilarious YouTubers.
Sunday, I awoke earlier than I have on a Sunday for a long time. Ordinarily, I would remain in bed and relax for a good long while. Not this time. I had been lured from my bed by wonderful human being Marie Bilodeau with the promise of a turkey dinner and some writing. It turned into a work session for the upcoming Can Con.
It was a productive session... though more so for the other members of the committee. I was responsible for tweeting that day. Guys, I think I might be on a committee or something. I'm still not sure what happened... Or if I'll be invited again. I mostly supplied the sarcasm.
That said, this year's convention is looking amazing. I'm really excited about it. It's going to be marvellous! I'm on a few panels, and I will be moderating one... for the first time in my life.
It was decided at this stealth work session that I didn't have enough to freak out about at this convention - I mean, who cares about pitches, right? - and I needed to also moderate a panel. I'm very worried that moderation is a little outside of my skill set, but it's a topic I'm fiercely interested in, so hopefully it'll be alright. I feel a panic attack just thinking about it.
It's going to be okay. It's going to be alright.
The point is, however, that you'll really want to be at Can Con this year. I've had a look at the panels, and they look amazing. Can Con's programming is second to none, and I mean it. I'm so excited about this year.
Now, Can Con could use some volunteers to make sure the weekend runs as smoothly as possible. If you feel like making yourself invaluable amongst geeky writerly types, click here to find out how. I got my foot in the door by buying a table at Can Con. I wish I had known about it before I embarked on my writing career. I'd have been on much firmer footing had I volunteered first.
Well, I was side-tracked.
Monday was sort of a restful day, but there was a lot of family stuff going on and so, I awoke this morning feeling a little more tired than I would like. One the bright side, I'm at work so I can rest.
That's how this weekend was!
Now I have to write an article on Skara Brae, which I meant write and have sent away yesterday. I doubt I'll get to any actual writing today.
Wish me luck!
