Home Again...

... for two whole days.

Had a great week teaching at Clarion West. A very talented group of young(ish) writers. You'll be hearing from some of them in the next few years, I suspect. Assuming they want it badly enough. Persistance and hunger and a certain amount of luck are required to make it in the writing game, as well as talent. Anyway, I have left them to the not-so-tender mercies of Connie Willis, SFWA's newest Grand Mis... er, Master.

Now I get to be home for those TWO WHOLE DAYS and catch up on a thousand emails.

On Wednesday, I am off to San Diego for Comicon. I go direct from there to Spain. Don't expect a lot of posts here for the next month.

You are a very busy man. Makes me wonder when you have time for writing the new book. I will wait patiently but the suspense is killing me. =)

Dear George,

I hope to see you in Italy someday. I assure you it's a very beautiful country, full of pretty girls, good food (and wine too). Ah and naturally there are a lot of fans of your books!

how much time do you have for writing?
With all the other work you have to do, how much time do you have for writing? Do you budget a certain number of hours/day? Does your assistant help you with scheduling your work? Such as now you need to write, and then cuts off all calls and so on? I would think with all the projects you have going, its hard to juggle them.

btw, does Ty Franck still work for you? I think you mentioned a different assistant. I just picked up Leviathan Wakes. It has gotten terrific reviews. I really liked some of Daniel Abraham's other books and I am really looking forward to it.

It was a great many positive adjectives to have you here last week, and we can't thank you enough. I know we'll try.

Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

Clarion West!
Thanks again, George, for taking time to teach out of your busy schedule! We all had such a fantastic time, and we learned a ton.

For all those out there, yes, George is about as amazing in person as you would expect him to be.

I wish I was going to get to see you in San Diego... unfortunately I can't go to Comic Con... :(

I hope you have fun and decide to go next year (I think I can be there next year!)

One of the best lines I stole from the Flying Karamazov Brothers is:
“A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. And so do I.”

you should come and teach classes in New Zealand! You know, because it doesn't sound like you're busy enough at the moment. ;)

Have an amazing time in Spain! xoxo
