After getting nearly eleven hours of sleep last night, I feel better today. Still pretty yicky, but better. Matthew's looking a bit ragged, too. He's been spending most of his days doing website updates and schedule coordination for his track.
The Dragon*Con schedule grid is live! I'm also nearly finished constructing the Daily Dragon orientation packet. Got to work out the desk staff schedule, but I can't do that until I hear back from all my volunteer people. dude_the will be flying in this weekend. Going to see about assembling the skeleton and tendons of Thursday's edition so that all I have to do when I get onsite is its flesh and makeup, and running it off--barring egregious schedule changes.
Also, the D*C volunteer coordinator is going to swing by and pick up over twenty boxes of promo stuff to distribute. Hurray! But the Fed Ex. Man came and brought six more. Boo! There's still dozens of boxes littering my dining room, dammit!
This week is a two-weeker at Critters due to the Labor Day holiday. Did both my crits and sent them off already since I expect to be rather swamped next week with Dragon*Con and all.
The amount of wordage that I've been able to accomplish can be summed up with a big ole goose egg. But then, I tend to experience a significant writing hiatus both before and after D*C.
Hey Eugie, you got a mention on the GPF comic DragonCon discussion board. I don't know if direct linking will work, but if so, here is the post: http://forums.keenspot.com/viewtopic.php?t=66672&sid=a1b8d61ea0eb6c08fcafad55ba5aa33a
Quite welcome! I figured that it wasn't likely the cartoonist would remember a message out of the blue like that, so pointing you at it seemed easiest :-) Hope the con doesn't wear you out too much and you get to have loads of fun!
Geez. I really should read those Critter automatic mailings more often. That's acutally good because I'm moving to NYC next week so if I do two I'll be caught up for now. Of course what sucks is the fact that I'll have not a chance to go either World Con or Dragon Con. Maybe next year.
