A Game for Balticon

Last week I posted a new PSYT on Flying Island Press. If you haven’t heard it yet, you might want to do so. In it I talked about the need to disconnect from the interwebs, the phones, everything… It’s good for the psyche. And during the recording of said episode, I had a thought. Why not make people find you through a scavenger hunt.

During the weekend I will give hints on Twitter @LN_Dragonsong to find where I am hanging out.  The hunt itself has some pretty awesome prizes and I would like to thank my friends in the Science Fiction Collective for sponsoring this game.  I will have printed out copies of these rules at Balticon, but they stand as follows.

Lookit, I’m posting.

Alrighty kids. I know you are all frothing at the bit to hear more about Stargazers, Absolution and the like. Let me just say, Absolution is a beast that I am taming slowly but surely with the help of Ayoub Khote and David Sobkowiak. We are working really hard to get it done but part of that requires me to record. (Bad Laura. Bad)

As to Stargazers, I realize I have been neglecting the story and its characters, so I am handing over the reigns to the woman who has lovingly helped me create the world, Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard. I don’t know how she works on all the shows that she does at the same time, but she does it with style!

Other than that I have been actively being crafty and working on getting a job down in Massachusetts so I can move down there. As we all know the job market is crap right now, so it is really difficult for me to get out of the customer service field. If anyone has any leads, let me know. I have, however, started working on making things like those tiny top hats for ladies, and I have to say, I am excited by the product. I will post pictures later, but what do you think some one would pay for a custom made mini top hat?

That’s all of my random thoughts for now.

NaNo 2011

Hiya folks,

Well it is that time of year again when us writer types get all crazy, forget that we have lives and write like the mad creative geniuses that we are. For me, getting started has been a challenge because of a great social life, recovering from surgery (had my tonsils taken out) and getting back into the swing of things at work. However I plan to get stuff done, just not sure how I would do it without the Write or Die app that I recently purchased. Thank you portable technology.

So let’s see… Pandora is up, Write or Die is up, I have caffeine, social media is off. I think I am ready.
