She took me to her castle

It’s been an amusing day. Kay has been glued to her new Cintiq tablet practically since we woke up. If you missed the post about the miraculous circumstances that ended with Kay getting the table, read here. Today we were trying (halfheartedly) to aim ourselves back to our routine, since we have to return to [...]

A day in the life of someone else

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, the details of WorldCon will come tomorrow (Tuesday). Today we’re exhausted, from the long drive home as well as the big birthday surprise I sprang on Kay (her birthday was Thursday). HUGE thanks to the more than 20 co-conspirators who helped make it happen. There’ll be completely separate posts dedicated [...]

But it’s just a crazy game

WorldCon continues tomorrow, but not for us: we’re driving home tomorrow. It was a crazy whirlwind four days, and we had a blast, but we are very ready to be home. Our friends the Wus had a great day today: Brianna Wu, who did the Issue 9 cover Free At Last, sold a gorgeous framed [...]

I’m sorry about the lack of updates. I know I said I’d do daily posts, but internet connection is pretty spotty, and we’ve had very little time for anything other than the convention. I’ll just promise that there’ll be full, detailed descriptions of WorldCon once we’re home.

Seems like I’ve been waiting here for all eternity

Surprisingly enough, the drive from Boston to Montreal wasn’t too bad. We left about 45 minutes earlier than expected (I know, WTF?), and arrived more than an hour ahead of expectation (I suspect it’ll be worse on the way back). Part of that had to do with the border crossing: I thought it would take [...]

So honey, let me help you with that suitcase…

This has been an incredibly stressful day. It would have been anyway, just getting ready for our trip tomorrow, without all the various small but significant things that went wrong. As it is, I feel more stressed out than I can remember feeling in a VERY long time. Without going into details: we did (eventually) [...]

Wanna be creative but the man won’t hear it

We have very little time today to work directly on actual issues of CG today; it was our last non-work day before we leave for WorldCon so we had to make the most of our time to get ready. We went shopping, we packed, we cleaned. We got a lot done. The main issue-related things [...]

Praying for the end of time

…or at least, the end of this seemingly neverending span until we leave for WorldCon. I can’t wait! Today saw a pretty good response to Issue 9. I decided to forgo advertising except a few penny ads here and there, to see what kind of response we’d get without it. The results were pretty much [...]

I blink and answer “Neon.”

I was up late last night getting the issue out, so I was exhausted and forgot to post. This morning I posted separately about Issue 9′s content. So yesterday… oye. Well we got a bunch of stories at the last minute, like usual… even a couple within the last hour. Overall we eclipsed our previous [...]

I’m not meant to play this part

You people are really keeping us busy. The submissions keep on coming. We’ve whittled them down to a slim pool… it turned out to be tougher than we expected. I don’t know why I’d be surprised, it makes perfect sense: the more submissions we get, the more impressive a pool to choose from. You know, [...]
