Post: Life, The Universe, and Everything

There is much for me to be excited about this week. Each year, BYU hosts a free Symposium for Science Fiction and Fantasy literature, called Life, The Universe, and Everything (LTUE for short). It's a great and golden opportunity to meet professional writers, editors, and other aspire-es. I'm looking forward to this weekend, to learn more about the craft and visit with old friends and associates. Getting a book or two signed is part of the deal, to be noted.

You can read more about it here.

Update: You're going to hate me. Chapter 6 is STILL not done ::sigh:: The reason is because I didn't get much time to write last week. Chapter 6 proved to be a larger mess than I thought. The last three pages had to go through a rewrite. I finished the read-through, so it looks better than it used to. However, it's nowhere near as refined as the previous five. With any luck, I can finally tell you that I'm onto bigger and better things next week. For now, Chapter 6 is still numero uno on my to-do list.

I had an idea for another short story, but it's uncomfortable, sad, and disturbing to think about . . . the plot, that is. Don't know if I'll ever get around to writing it, but I'll put it on my "rainy-day" shelf for another time. Still awaiting word on Forerunner from WotF. Thank you everyone who has wished me luck! I'll let you know if anything comes of it.

Well, that's all for now. How about those Saint's, huh? I watched Winnie-the-Pooh with my son so I don't know what the final score was or anything. I could look it up, but I have 45 minutes until the official work day starts. I'm off to chapter 6!

Oh, and the guacamole was delicious, by the way.
