Another colleague moving on. Work environment stress ratcheting up. Meeting to clarify spreading of duties just made it more muddy than before. I keep doing what I’m doing. Two new hires starting soon, then another round of sorting out job descriptions and interviews.

I’ve started a new thing in writing. I have a prompt that I’m going to respond to every day for at least four weeks. No word count requirements, just write what I feel that day. The prompt is:

Tell me how you crumble when
you hit the wall, the place you
cannot go beyond by the strength
of your own will. What carries you
to the other side of that wall,
to the fragile beauty
of your own humanness?
Oriah Mountain Dreamer, The Dance

After I finished Kushiel’s Chosen, I’m back on Benedict Jacka. Got through Chosen and now on Hidden. I also am working on Volume 6 of Locke & Key.

Tomorrow is my first professional presentation at a conference. All the nerves, but it will be fine. I have been getting a lot of practice here at school, so it won’t be complete stage fright, just a bit jangled. I am prepared and have all the info I need, and all will be well. I put a lot of work into this project, someone ought to hear about it.

Then my first GenCon, first live CR show, followed shortly by my second WorldCon, first time in Scotland and a best friend’s wedding. It’s a great month ahead of me. All the excitement! I even put pockets in my skirt!

I had a great time with friends this past weekend and a nice trip up to see family. Duvet cover for my birthday, I have reached adulting status. (Thank you, Pete and Sarah.)

I finished Ender’s Shadow, Wishes and Wellingtons, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Vox Machina Origins II issue 1. Now, I have picked up a new author with Fated by Benedict Jacka. It’s a modern British wizard story in the vein of Dresden, he even references him a bit at the beginning. I also picked up issue 2 of A Darkened Wish. It’s so Pretty!
