It’s been a busy week! Right at the end of poetry month there was a magazine issue to get out, working on Colleen Anderson’s poetry book, the weekly Authortunities, the Visa paperwork process, Portuguese lessons, working on some publishing things here in Brazil I can’t quite announce yet, a Space and Time magazine thing I also can’t announce yet, and a really cool thing with the show I can’t quite announce yet… (sorry!) and now it’s time to get ready for the Nebulas!

I have four panels scheduled for this weekend talking about AI, virtual reality, trends among younger readers and the rise of Asian-American literature followed by a special panel discussion on AI for the Horror Writer Association. Pre-register for the HWA panel for free here.

What am I doing after Monday? Hopefully, nothing. I’ll be keeping up on my new Midjourney poetry collaboration on Twitter. I learned a lot from the first one. Shorter lines, a more unified art style and I’m breaking the long poem up into three directions of focus. You can watch it come together here.

For the rest of this week I’ll be posting things here and on the HWA blog, working on my column, that final story I owe, some poetry I owe, Inujini edits, and spending more time pacing myself. This month Colleen Anderson will be visiting and I’m looking forward to doing poetry nerd stuff with her.

If you are attending the Nebulas, say hi during one of the panels (I’ll be sharing more details in this week’s Authortunities) or pre-register for the HWA panel on AI.

  1. Pause for a breath, maybe, but only ONE breath — or so it sounds, and you’re back to multi-tasking — ain’t it the best fun?!! I think so!
