Last night, I was up late again finishing my critiques for the writing workshops. I finished them around 4:00 a.m., then slept a few hours, got ready, and workshopped. It went well. It always does when you have a group of talented writers and critiquers.
Afterward, I was so tired that I had to rest, so I actually got some sleep. I’ve never been quite so tired at Wiscon before. I think it’s because this has been such a tiring year in general. I haven’t had time to recover yet. When I get home, I’m going to spend a couple of days sleeping. After finishing my revisions, I mean.
When I woke up, I went down and walked around the book room, and took a few pictures.
At the Small Beer Press table, I saw David Schwartz and Genevieve Valentine.
And here is Genevieve’s book, which just came out.
Genevieve and I got into a fight. Yes, right there among the books.
But then we made up and started to tango.
Afterward, I went to dinner with Catherynne Valente, and Annalee Newitz and Charlie Jane Anders from io9. We ate Nepalese. And then, I skipped all the parties. I know, it’s Wiscon. But I’m tired, and I’ve been to enough conventions now to know that when I want to rest and be by myself, I should.
So tonight I’m going to rest. There are plenty of parties tomorrow.
