  • Thu, 16:02: (paraphrase) If a man and a raptor have sex, it's erotica; if they have sex in outer space, it's science fiction!
  • Fri, 07:39: Letting the Interwebz keep me from writing. Bad writer! (In my defense, the story is a tough one)
  • Fri, 07:40: Who knew I'd see a day where the Internetz are full of discussion about dinosaur butt sex?
  • Fri, 07:49: Well, it is the Internet after all.

Sitting in coffee shop, waiting for the copy shop to open. Should be writing, but poking around the internet. Internet is full of discussion of dinosaur butt sex. This is a unique morning.

Still tired after playing Australian Rules Football last night. And it's Friday. Double low energy.

"Voice and the Void", the current story I want to rewrite, is a tough one. There's emotional depth there, and I want to add more. Not ready to climb the hill.

And that's the morning! Time to go pick up the copies for Sunday's math contest.

"Voice and the Void" rewrite will wait for another day.

So, an organized group has again demonstrated that an organized group can nominate for popular awards in an organized fashion and pretty much determine the nominees on the final award ballot.

I'm certainly not surprised by this result, having seen popular votes gamed on the internet for, like, forever.

Time to vote the way I always vote: Read the nominees. Determine what I like, in order of preference. Use "No Award" to draw the line between what I do and don't want to give a Hugo.

Two early predictions for Worldcon 2016:
- A fairly short Hugo Awards ceremony, similar in result to 2015.
- The "E Pluribus Hugo" and/or "4/6" motions pass with large majorities.

- yeff

ps - that My Little Pony episode better be *really* *really* good.
