Because I know you’re always looking for reasons not to throw yourself off a bridge, consider this as something to get you through the weekend: Next week, I’ll be posting not one, not two, but three Big Idea pieces. Yes! Three times the joy! At least which one of which I intended to post this week, but then Bad Flight Karma and other things happened.Yeah, I suck.
Mind you, this is one of the reasons we’re doing BigIdeaAuthors.com — the site will have its own, far more responsible editor, who will make sure everything goes up on schedule and not just when I get around to it. That’s right, I’m outsourcing professionalism! And you should all be glad.
Incidentally, I’ll be having more details about BIA soon, so those of you on your chair for that, be ready! It’s coming. Not today, though. Today I’m, well, kind of flaky. It happens from time to time.
First, the popular and obligatory picture from the hotel window:
I can see the Washington Monument from my window, but right now the sun’s glare is keeping me from getting a good shot of it, so you’re all out of luck in terms of symbolic phallic symbols. Try to make it through the day anyway.
For those of you e-mailing me about whether I’m in town for a public appearance, the answer is no; friends of mine are getting married and I’m here for that. Also, I don’t know when I will next have a public appearance in DC; I suspect possibly the next time I publish a novel, but that won’t be this year in any event. Or I might finally get down to CapClave, which I keep intending to and keep not managing, because I suck. We’ll see. But in any event, no, nothing public scheduled at the moment. Sorry.
But it’s nice to back in DC; we lived in the area for a number of years and still have a house here, so I definitely feel a connection. Maybe I’ll just pop in on my renters and confuse the hell of out of them. That’s a day’s worth of entertainment right there!
