anybody in NYC going to the KGB Fantastic Fiction reading Wednesday night?

KGB Fantastic Fiction is a marvelous speculative fiction reading series at the KGB Bar in Manhattan. It features many big names and some up-and-comers, and sounds like an awesome series.

October's event is tonight Wednesday night and it's a "celebration of Weird Tales". They'll have authors reading and will have "winners and honorees of the Weird Tales Spam Fiction Contest". And that's why I'm curious, as I was a Honorable Mention in that contest!

Since I'm across the country I can't attend, thus I'm curious if anyone is going. Because if they read my story that would sure make my week! So if anyone goes, let me know...

ETA: Fixed the date. You'd think I could read a calendar. Stephen Segal notes below they will probably read the top placing stories. People should go to the event! It sounds great!

[writing] well, got something done today

Up this morning and sent a story to Nancy Kress for her to critique. This was my prize in the KGB Fantastic Fiction raffle.

And every time I think "Nancy Kress will critique my story" I get a little "squeee" of awesome!

While the kids went to the school carnival and C went for a run, I then revised another story based on some feedback and sent it out. We'll see what happens.

So that's some writing that got done today. Which hasn't happened a lot in the last week and even in the last month. Time to get back on the horse. As lilithsaintcrow said recently, it's all about slow steady effort. Or, as I've also heard, "just shut up and write".

My reward for this will be to watch "Fight Club" before going to get E from the Homecoming Dance. And so will end Saturday.
