How a day can evaporate

Lessse, got up nice and early ... but what the heck did I accomplish?

Well, I wrote 1,700 words of answers for a by-email interview for a Turkish national news agency (as a lead up to my keynote address in Istanbul on February 2).

I wrote 900 words of answers for a by-email interview by John Joesph Adams to support the release of his anthology Federations, which contains a story by me.

I wrote 1,000 words of answers for a by-email interview for the Italian SF site Fantascienza.com (in support of the recent release of my Humans in Italy).

I wrote the 1,000-word introduction to Distant Early Warnings: Canada's Best Science Fiction, an anthology I'm editing that will come out this summer (and about which more later).

I wrote up a brief comment about my virtual book-tour appearance in Second Life for an article to appear in Baen's Universe.

I recorded my parts for the Audible.com production of Wake (I'm voicing a small role).

I finalized arrangements for my accommodations in Saskatoon this summer for my stint as writer-in-residence at the Canadian Light Source.

And, oh, yeah, I did some work on Watch, the novel I'm currently writing.

Do you play any online game??? I am tempted to play EVE ONLINE since it is more space/scifi oriented. I have read several articles about the technology develop by space companies and I think that they have awesome ideas to write a
novel. It is incredible how EVE ONLINE has evolved so far.

Hi, Puppet Master. No, I don't play any online games, and I have no games installed on my computer. :)

I do have a very dear friend who plays Eve Online, and she really enjoys it.
