Good News on the Gneechy Writing Front

Current story sent off to the editor this morning. It’s a short whodunnit starring Suburban Jungle’s Squash and Stretch, Private Investigators, written for Roar, Vol. 3. While the final decision on what stories will make it in hasn’t been made yet, I put a lot of effort into making this a good story and I’m pretty confident of its chances.

Next project for me, I think, will be getting the collected Fictionlets into print form.

Also, while I’m making announcements, I’ll go ahead and spill the beans that I’ve been named Guest of Honor for Confuzzled 2011 in Manchester, U.K.! How awesome is that? :D Time to actually go get that passport, eh? Big thanks to the whole CF crew, it means a lot to me!

That's great news! You'll stop off and see London too, right? I know I'm not the only one awaiting the chance to buy you a pint.

I certainly hope to; I harbor an idle fantasy of stepping in to the Groucho Club and bumping into Stephen Fry. ;)

There's so much to be done, tho! Paranoid Panther has offered to shuttle me over to Portmerion, and I'd like to get over to Cardiff to check out the Doctor Who museum ... but I'm going to be limited by funds and vacation time. I won't really know what is going to be realistically achievable until we get closer to the actual event.

PS: I would actually be surprised to hear that Stephen Fry has been anywhere near the Groucho Club within this century. But I did say it was an idle fantasy...

Oh, oh, one of my colleagues bumped into Stephen Fry a couple of weeks ago! Almost literally! She was walking back to the office and they did that thing where you both try to get out of each other's way and keep stepping in the same direction.

I work in Soho so he might well have been on his way to the Groucho.

Good luck with getting the short into Roar, it'll be good to see it in print if all goes well :)

And congrats on the GoH thingy, I'm informed by reliable sources that they'll take good care of you :P
