Weddings are nightmarish things and I’m glad it’s over. That said, we had a great party and an amazing outpouring of help from friends, with many folks enjoying the ceremony we wrote together. Our wedding was declared, “the geekiest wedding I’ve ever seen” by many people.
The writing schedule is still a bit delayed, due to daily efforts to vacuum up this ongoing glitter infestation. If the question is glitter, the answer is always no. Remember this.
I’ve got the barest glimmerings of an essay on how to throw a cool wedding that I may shop around in the next few weeks. I’m disturbed by the number of wedding magazines out there, it’s a terrifying industry.
It took several days to excavate my apartment floor, shoving tulle and glittery vases into enough plastic tubs to build a respectable-sized fort around the kitchen table.
I have acquired more casserole dishes than I quite know what to do with, but I also have a KitchenAid mixer and that is just lovely.
I will hopefully be writing short story reviews for a science fiction publication next month; I’ll post more about that once it’s solidly happening.
I’m going to try my best to get back on the blog-every-day train this week, and jump back into fiction word counts as soon as I feel good about the outline I’m working on.
I’ll post some wedding pictures when we get them back from the photographer. I was running around so much that I didn’t take a single picture of the decorations we put hours into. Or our very cool cake.
The Speculations Newsletter will also be back this week.
