This Is Not a Post

I had been hoping to make a more substantial post this morning, as there's so much I want to talk about:

• I finished a few pieces of writing, and I'm working on others;

• I saw a friend do very well at the ACPT;

• I have some thoughts about the dearth of women among this year's Hugo nominees;

• I set up a LiveJournal community (LJ: sfwa) for outreach from Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America;

• And I'm still dealing with a lot of the repercussions of my Mom's death.

But Passover starts tonight and we're going to be mostly off line for about a week and a half. Expect me when you see me.
