My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Blogging From Kublacon!

The most fun you can have without MDMA fueled orgies!

I will be packing up on Friday and heading to Kublacon for a weekend of fun, games, and not being called a fake geek (even though I am one).

However, Blog insists that if I slack on offering new content every single day that there will be no hope of hitting the goal it dreamed up of not dropping below 1000 hits for the entire month of May, and it has insisted that I come up with an itinerary of posts that can be done from the hotel.

"But I like taking the weekend of convention's off," I said. "It's pretty much the closest thing I get to a vacation."

"Oh Chris," Blog said. "Dear, sweet Chris. Do you still not understand who controls whom in this relationship. We're not going to fall below a thousand page views because you wanted a vacation."

"I want the weekend off!" I said. I wanted it to be firm, but my voice cracked a little. "I'll post good reruns! They'll get hits. We'll make a thousand page views. Please don't make me–"

Blog quickly reached over and decapitated our latest picture-finding intern in one casual move.

"Oh I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?" It said. Then it held up the intern's head in its head and started shouting: "Now...if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, now's the fucking time."

"It's only me here," I said. I glanced at the intern's headless body.  "....now."

"I didn't want to mess up the Kill Bill quote," Blog said. "I trust you get the gist. Now go make me a postwich"

My relationship to this blog might not be...healthy.

So...for those of you with no plans this weekend, or those of you who just need something to do during the time slot when the shuffler denies you the game you really want to get into, I will be here. Whether I want to be or not.

  • On Friday there will be a normal Mailbox even as I attempt to pack, clean every litter box, and try to leave with enough time to get my Friday night geek on. Babies don't make it hard to leave for things on time, do they?
  • As I mentioned last Saturday, I did a panel about non-traditional publishing with Ace of Geeks that will be going up as their podcast on their website this Friday. Like most panels and interviews, I thought of addendum when we were on to the next question, or great things to say when the other guy was holding the microphone, or just generally thought of brilliant things to say two hours later (and that's why I'm a writer and not an orator). My Saturday post will be a timeline of additional thoughts (with time stamps) that you can read while listening to the podcast.
  • Sun: A long overdue conversation with Ima Lister. I've been putting it off because he's our highest rated guest blogger, but I can't ignore it forever.
  • Mon: I have My blog has a crazy ambition to try to do one of my "As a Writer" Convention Reports and to have it up right away. So even if it takes me until late afternoon or early evening, the hope is to get that posted–or at least the first part of one.
