Hey readers,

Sorry for the lack of postings the last few days.  I've been pretty busy with some stuff, and I feel like writing a list right now, so you better goddamn believe that a list of stuff I've been busy with is about to come up. 

Stuff I've been busy with

1.  Writing. 

Yes, my actual job.  I chunked through a tidy stack of pages (for me) last week, and I'm a polish or two away from sending my new book off to my editor. 

2.  Being sick. 

Because chunking through a stack of pages comes at a cost.  And that cost is  puking a lot and having fever dreams.  But, on the good news side, this left me with plenty of time to catch up on Top Chef Masters.  Dang that is a fine program.  Granted, it was kinda rough to watch the food stuff, you know, with all the vomiting I was doing and all, but other than that, those were some fine hours of entertainment. 

3.  SCBWI Conference.  (author's note: that's Society for Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators, for those of you not hip to the acronyms)

Which was awesome.  I'll do a bigger post about all the cool things that happened there in a few days, but it was a super fun time and I got to meet some really cool people. 

Okay, so that's what has been going on with me, but now that I'm not writing as much or being as sick or going to any conferences for the next few weeks, I'll definitely have some more time for blogging.  So, get ready for that. 


I'm going to be talking at the Emerging Writer's Institute in Berkeley tommorow.  So, if any of you out there happen to be an emerging writer, or just squatting in a classroom on the Berkeley campus over summer, you will most likely get to hear me talk about writing and stuff.  So, that's gonna happen too.
