First off, I reached my 50 hours target for revision in March, with – well, let’s say, with a little time to spare. 🙂
In April, you’ll hear a lot from me, between A-Z challenge posts and Weekend Writing Warriors, but you probably won’t hear much about my Camp Nanowrimo process in between that. Never fear, though, I’ll be plugging away at “The Gnomes are Missing” and hopefully having a blast.
Oh, I’m also going to be doing the open mike night in James Street North Wednesday evening, reading two flash stories, “I heard Dad’s voice” and “Welcome to Your Revolution.”
So yeah, that’s what’s up with me. (Or part of it.) Probably won’t be juggling What’s up Wednesday until April is over.

I’m just a bit frantic at the moment trying to make sure that I’m ready to leave for Dragon*Con in the morning, but I wanted to share a few things.
I took the day off today, kinda relaxed in the morning and pretended that I was getting ready to pack without accomplishing too much in that direction. 😉 I also went for a walk, and realized it was getting warm, so on the way back I went to the parking lot to put the sunshade up in my car. Locked the car, got halfway to my building…
…and realized that I’d locked my keyring in the car. With my apartment key on it. I had a spare key to the car – inside the apartment. Along with my cell phone and presumably, a laminated CAA roadside assistance card that I’ve lost track of.
It turned out okay. I was able to call the roadside assistance people from the pay phone across the street, they were able to lookup my membership based on my phone number and other info, and a nice gentleman drove up in ten minutes or so, checked my driver’s license to be sure I was who I said I was, and open up my car. I’ve tracked down the little temporary roadside assistance card that I printed out for myself before they mailed me a laminated card, just so I’ve got my CAA number in my wallet, and I may try keeping the two car keys in different pockets for a while again, unless that drives me nuts.
And I had a great family reunion this afternoon, including some cousins from my mother’s side of the family that I hadn’t seen in ages. We chatted at my Mom’s condo, played in the building’s pool, and went out for dinner at Swiss Chalet. 🙂
What’s your favorite ‘day off’ memory?
