spring

that very chymerical combination, the gasbag where the warderworks

Been pretty head down most of today, working on tonight's class lecture and exercises as well as looking at the stories to be critted. The lecture is basically a 3k boil down of Nancy Kress's excellent BEGINNINGS, MIDDLES, & ENDS, along with some in-class exercises to illustrate various points, and some amplification injected here and there where pertinent. I'll also talk a little about the con -- why people go to them, what various sorts get out of them, the advantages/disadvantages. Etc.

Tomorrow I'll take a run at slush beyond the one I made while at WFC, as well as revising some stuff to get it out.
