• The interwebs tell me that today is [livejournal.com profile] herefox's birthday!  Hope it's a good one.
  • Bowercon was awesome.  Lots of food, talking, food, talking, talking about food, pretty things to look at, amazing art created by terrific friends, and we've established the programming committee for next time.  And I got to play with [livejournal.com profile] undinesprite's balls.  (I just checked.  That joke is still amusing to me.  SUFFER!)
  • Did I mention that I'm writing an ongoing urban fantasy serial on our writing blog?  Inkling (a Fifteen Minute Fiction serial)  There you go.  It's free, and everything.  Updated regularly.
  • In the next month, I need to do the following:
    • Write a full outline for Memory Keeper
    • Update my pitch to reflect that outline
    • Make sure the first three chapters are as perfect as I can make them
    • Write until my fingers fall off
    • Write some more
    • Finish altering my costume for the Steampunk Ball at Authors After Dark
    • Alter Michelle's dress for the Steampunk Ball at Authors After Dark
    • Figure out what I'm giving my friend for her wedding.  Which takes place the same day as the Steampunk Ball at Authors After Dark.  Which is also the weekend that THREE concerts I want to go to are happening. (The moral of this story is: JFC, August, give it a rest.)
    • Did I mention "write until my eyes bleed and there are no more thoughts in my head"?  Oh, good.
    • Come up with a new title for Memory Keeper.  Note that this item has been appearing in to-do lists for several months now.  So that's going swimmingly.
    • Swim.  Because exercise is good, and the pool is only open until September
    • Figure out how to permanently implant a "Mumford and Sons" album in my eardrums
    • Work on the Kellen Frey prequel story
    • Get my studio cleaned up.  Seriously.  It's going to crawl out the door and eat me.
    • Accept that I will not be doing any craft fairs this year. Because I might be crazy, but I'm not STUPID.
    • Try not to be super upset that our names are STILL (after 3 reminders) spelled wrong on the conference website
    • Curl into a ball and whimper, while still typing with my free hand.
      • Get extra set of hands

And of course, this weekend we're going out of town.  Which will be fun, don't get me wrong, but not exactly helpful in the "get shit done" category.  Except for writing.  3,000 words or bust, right? 

*But only when they occur in textual form.

Happy 40th birthday, [livejournal.com profile] ame_chan! May your year be full of joy and peace!
When everyone was here, we were talking about exchanging a bunch of recipes, and I said I'd create a community. So I did! [livejournal.com profile] bower_cooks

Come, join, share your favourites, pass the Crack Dip!
I just wanted to say, I have the kindest, most generous friends in the whole world.

You all made me feel VERY spoiled, and very loved this holiday season, not to mention year round.

Individual thank you cards are being mailed, but i wanted to make sure that you all knew how wonderful you are, and how much I appreciate your kind words, gifts, and support.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] ame_chan!

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] mat_t! I hope it brings you all kinds of awesome.
This is my official announcement. Some time next year, I would like to host a Bowercon at my place in Virginia, just outside DC. [livejournal.com profile] tammy_g has suggested around spring break, but [livejournal.com profile] marigot won't be in town that week. *pout* So, when would you guys be interested/able to come visit? The summers are generally not REALLY all that hot, though they can be quite muggy mid-July through mid-August.

I'm pretty sure I can promise some awesome ice cream, and if people are interested, possibly a session where we could all design a flavour and make it. Other ideas have been a visit to Williamsburg, specifically The Trellis, so Tammy can stalk appreciate the chef's pastries.

Drop me some comments, let me know if there anything you'd want to do in the DC/VA/MD area, and when you think would work best.
Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] debmats!

Thank you for keeping us all in line and together over the years. May your new year be full of joy and happiness!
In fine style, I want to take a late minute here to wish a Happy Birthday to my deer friend [livejournal.com profile] mat_t!  We've know each other for about 12 years at this point, and we tend to drift in an out of touch, but you've always been one of those friends I feel like I can pick up with anywhere.  I hope you had a fabulous day, and that this year treats you exceptionally well.  Happy 30th birthday!
