I had a really fun time in Santa Fe at the Jean Cocteau event. George and I were on stage arguing about which is better, New Mars or Old Mars. George is an ardent defender of Old Mars, the Mars we wrote about before we knew anything about what Mars is actually like. I’m a big fan of New Mars, the only planet known to be entirely inhabited by robots.
Between the trip to NM and visiting my parents, who puppysat Lily for me, this turned into a long weekend of travel and socializing, and I’m exhausted. I need to curl up on the sofa with the electric blanket and a hot toddy. Fortunately, season 2 of The Expanse starts tonight, so I think I’ll get my chance to just…chill…out…
Let’s see if I can get some writing done before I go hibernate. New Novel is at 26,000 words. Onward!
