Week 4 of 2019
I’m in Chattanooga at the Read House hotel for ChattaCon. It’s been a great week. I started the week with 50-some thousand words in a jumble. I ended the week with over 60k towards a book. I also cleaned up a bunch of things to match some of the universe standards.
In other words, I had a great writing retreat this week. I also made progress on re-editing The Eyes of a Doll.
Now it’s time for ChattaCon. Here’s my schedule
6pm: Revisionist History, Alternate History, and Historical Fantasy. Oh, my!
12noon: Shaved Werewolves and Other Oddities
2pm: The Book was Better
7pm: Benefits and Drawbacks of Traditional versus Independent Publishing
11am: Tudors with Machine Guns
1pm: Obscure Heroes
Lots of great stuff here, and I’m excited to be a part of it. I really want to thank Lani Brooks for letting me be a part of things here.
If you’re at ChattaCon, please join me. I’ll be giving away old SF magazines at my panel. This week’s phrase is: Anne Boleyn. You’ll see why in a moment. If you’re at one of my panels, I’ll give you a magazine if you’re the first person to tell me this phrase.
Current Playlist Song
Pellonpekko by Korpiklaani. These guys are a fantastic Finnish folk metal band and this is an amazing instrumental that I love.
Quote of the Week
Henry VIII secretly married Anne Boleyn on this day in 1533. She’s the first beheaded in this:
“Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived”
