Quick updates on various items:
The Kids' Writing Camp concludes today. I have some talented young fictioneers and the class has gone very well, with just one blip. Every day a midmorning snack is delivered to our classroom: pretzels or cookies or whatever. Wednesday it was a big bowl of animal crackers. However, it turns out that there is a fascinating fad among the twelve-year-old set for seeing if it is possible to drill a hole through the center of one animal cracker using nothing but the leg of a second animal cracker. Everyone immediately forgot about effective prose and became absorbed in accomplishing this important task. This does not happen when I teach Clarion.
DOGS video: The You Tube video for DOGS is up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lydTlKD0Wc Tachyon Press put this together with no budget whatsoever, and I am grateful. It will make you either want to read the book or to sell your pet.
Story for TECHNOLOGY REVIEW: This is still under review. I hope to hear soon that it's been accepted by the magazine, which I very much want to be in.
Idea for a novel: I still don't have one.
