Gonna have to put the graphic novel manuscript on the back burner for the next few days, so I can firm up my keynote next Friday at the Once and Future Fantasies Conference in Glasgow: fantasy.glasgow.ac.uk/index.ph The other keynote is by Marina Warner. Who knew when I first started reading her folklore scholarship decades before I even dreamed of being a writer that I'd one day be featured at a conference where she's also speaking? Yet it's happened twice now.


fibromyalgia, chronic pain, chronic fatigue 

Had to miss Marina Warner’s keynote; too much pain and fatigue. I guess I’m still recovering from the flight. Yay, ! Instead I limped — literally — back to my hotel room to add some furbelows to my own keynote. She greeted me this morning at breakfast, says she’ll be at mine, so now I feel doubly chagrined. :(
