300 followers! Wow. I never dreamed so many people would take an interest in my blog. Thanks so much to all of you. I appreciate your comments and your support and your friendship. I sincerely hope I'll have something to say here at the Writing Chair that will be valuable to you.
Two new hats!
Aren't they cute? I needed something to chase away the January blahs.
I wrote yesterday! Only for half an hour and only one page, but it was one page more than I've written on any other day this week, and I actually felt good about what came out of me. Perhaps the end of writer's block is in sight.
And something that's got me really happy dancing:
Registration is now open for Life, the Universe, and Everything (aka LTUE)! February 17-19, 2011 at the Harman Conference center on the BYU campus.
But the part that really has me all giddy is that if you click on the schedule, you'll see my name there. I am on four panels. Two of them with the amazing Dave Wolverton/Farland. I have been waiting for this day for something like fifteen years! I'm really excited. And nervous.
In case you're going to be there (and all you local folks, I sure hope you are!) and are interested, here are my panels (subject to change):
Thursday, 4pm The Writing Life (How to set and keep goals, prioritize, etc.)
Friday, 10am How to Write a Good Short Story
Friday, 1pm Dialog Tags and Speech Patterns
Saturday 9am Religion in Science Fiction: How to Make it Work
So, what are you smiling about today?
