An Exciting Weekend Ahead

Normally, I work Saturdays at the office job I have. Normally, I write Sundays with my year-round group that is part of NaNoWriMo. Normally.

Tomorrow, I’m leaving on the Great Train Escape from Los Angeles Union Station to Oakland (and then to San Francisco). The train ride is approximately 11 hours long. The entire trip will be filled with writing, writing, more writing, beautiful views of the ocean, wonderful company, and maybe a little bit of napping, who knows.

Saturday will be spent writing and possibly touring San Francisco and some parts thereof. I don’t have the definitive plan yet, but I know it will be awesome. Awesome is good. And it means that I’m breaking from the normal pattern of my week and taking a mini-vacation (though it is more like a conference than anything).

Sunday morning will be feasting (I’m sure) and preparing for the Night of Writing Dangerously, and event held by the Office of Letters and Light (which runs NaNoWriMo). Basically this night is food, fun, candy, and yes, writing. I am looking forward to spending this time with a lot of the wonderful people of the LA region and from all over the writing world.

I am fortunate to have been gifted this experience by Sara McBride a truly generous spirit and wonderful friend. Thank you.

  1. Nice post, Andrew! I look forward to communing with you on Sunday evening. I was SO looking forward to the train trip, but that’s not the way it’s going to shake down for me. Oh well! Next year…

    So, I’m driving up on Saturday and spending an evening in The City, then Sunday touring and feasting, just like you. Who knows, maybe we’ll run into each other at one trough or another. Then, it’s on to the Perilous Writing Caper in the historic (or is that hysteric) Julia Morgan Ballroom. Whoo-hooo! See you soon, Andrew!

    Safe travels, my friend,


    • Gah! I’m glad I got to see you tonight! Now that notifications are fixed for my phone I should be good. I’ll have to check the email settings. I will see you at the Julia Morgan Ballroom!
