December 3 2009 –
This year, I got reacquainted with L. Timmel Duchamp, author of The Marq’ssan Cycle and publisher of Aqueduct Press. It took me a couple months to work up the courage to approach her, but she remembered me from a story she critiqued in a Potlatch workshop in 2002 and from various times I’ve talked with her over the years, and she welcomed me warmly. To make a long story short, I’ve been posting over on her blog, and here is a post on the pleasures of reading, writing, and listening. In the near future, I’ll repost bits of that in this blog.
Next year will be an exciting one for me. I’ll be attending Potlatch and Norwescon, but best of all, the Fishtrap winter workshop. I’ll also be revising stories I’ve already written and submitting them to magazines.
