Reading: Still poking at Anathem, like broccoli on my plate and reading Packing for Mars. Just ordered Honeybee Democracy and Never Knew Another from the friendly neighborhood book store.
Planning: Weekend with the lady-friend.
Writing: Brainstorming a gonzo sci-fi idea with an artist friend, talking with another about a comics pitch and trying to find my re-entry point on my wizard novel.
Heading up to Oakland to hang out with Chris, Fred, Ryan, Jason, Steve, and others. It’s going to be fantastic.
You might wanna consider audiobooking Anathem. I found it very difficult, and listened to the first two six hour files, then went back to the first one and was able to grok the whole thing. It was a tough experience, but worthwhile in the end.
Reading: Finished reading all of 2nd edition Victoriana (interesting how dated some of the system / gming advice is, and this is a fairly recent game), slowly working my way through the Havering Adventures, planning to run the first as Kerberos Fate, with modifications of the plot.
Planning: Recovering from what we think is scabies. Had to cancel a group creation session for Smallville, between the scabies and the general concrud we seem to have caught at Arisia (aka the Great Northeast Winter Germ-swap). Coordinating on larp writing plans. Hopefully, picking up most of the laundry tonight.
Writing: Catching up on email right now. Was too out of things yesterday to boot up a computer.
