October went by in a flash, so here are some personal updates!
I was put in charge of the New England Science Fiction Association’s (NESFA) Reading Group, which is a monthly book club that meets in Somerville MA. I’ll be organizing the schedule and leading discussions (really, just asking questions to get readers talking).
I’m excited! I joined NESFA to get exposed to new SF books/ get to know the industry better, so I’m glad to give back.
This November 30th (7pm) we’re reading Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology.
This January we’re doing a throwback and reading Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama.
If you’re in the area, feel free to join!
As for writing, I’m nose-deep in NaNoWriMo, and it’s going sorta well. I keep resisting the urge to edit/worldbuild. Hoping to get to that 50k mark! I have some short works I’m editing, and one of them is a rewrite + resubmit request from an editor I really want to work with, so here’s hoping I can succeed!
Also, my baby and I were awesome this Halloween:
