It was an amazingly awesome conference, probably the best I’ve had so far, but my expectations are pretty high for NYC. So I say “so far” with great foresight.

I hung out with lots of cool people, didn’t see some people as often as I’d like. Altogether, the conference went amazingly well, considering how fast the board put it together.

I’m now in Alabama, doing a writer’s retreat. And that’s going very well. I might actually survive the summer… and all the incipient deadlines. It’s super hot, here, though, so I don’t want to leave the aircon. How are y’all keeping cool?
