No Place Like Home

We got back home last night, after a pleasant weekend at LepreCon. The convention was very small, only half the size of Bubonicon, but the Phoenix fen were a friendly bunch and we had a great time.

I should never go away, though. The amount of stuff that builds up when I leave, even for a short trip like this one, is truly daunting. Hundreds of emails, huge stacks of snail mail (bills, contracts, junk, with a few real letters salted in)... and, for this trip at least, must be a hundred or more new audition tapes for parts both small (Rast, Mord, Jhogo) and large (Lord Tywin, Ser Barristan, Lysa Arryn) in the HBO series. I was keeping up with the auditions pretty well. Now I'm way, way behind...

Well, nothing to do but get into it. I have another convention trip coming up soon, and lots to do before we go.

June is fast approaching
Sorry to hear work has piled up in your absence. With June fast approaching, and filming of the HBO series due to commence, will you be taking more time out to visit the filming sets, and risking more work pile-up or will you be taking more of a back seat and following it from afar?

Re: June is fast approaching
Much as I would like to spend a lot of time watching the HBO series being filmed, it is simply not possible. I have way too much work to do here at home.

(And truth be told, a writer on a film set is often as useful as nipples on a breastplate. By the time the cameras start to roll, the project rests in the hands of the actors, directors, and showrunners. I am none of those things on GAME OF THRONES)

I may decide to visit the shoot when my own episode -- episode eight -- is being filmed. But even that depends on when and where and what I'm doing at the time. I will likely also drop by Belfast for a day or two after Octocon in Dublin come October, since I'll be in Ireland anyway. (If we're shooting in Belfast at that time, and not on some distant location). But only for a day or three.

Also, FWIW, I am now informed that the start of principle photography has been pushed back to late July.
