|Seven days on the road

Seven days remain in the Cats Laughing kickstarter
. As anyone following along (which seems to be most everyone I know) is already aware, things have gone really quite increadably well. Moreover, the band is every bit as much a treat to work with as you'd think. So far we've awarded seven free signed goodies. (Winners -including lollardfish
, amung others-- are drawn from those promoting the campaign, no obligation to back fincially so do this and leave a comment, if you haven't). We've also shared four MP3 tracks with backers, including "See How the Sparrow Files"- a studio track off Another Way To Travel
. We've recorded/edited video of celeberty authors, had breakfast with the Cats, met with a professional indipendant film maker and gotten scads of advice (and a sweatheart deal to bring him into town, ohh I hope-I hope), did a production crew + Cats conference (call complete with Wha-Wha-Waa and Ba-Dump-Bum sound effects), bought some advertising, talked to some excellent local vendors and gotten to spend some time considering how to make what is sure to be a wonderful Minicon 50 even more outstanding. Tomorrow I need to update the Beyond Conventions Cats page to start moving toward that (rather than Kickstarter) as being the one-true source of information, and also should our press-release generate actual press.
It's really fun to do stuff with Dee. While we get into the occasional scuffel over technque or wording or prioritization or whatnot, this turns out to have been somewhat absent from our life together; project work is a very nice place for that to exist.
Miklos and I have almost finished Superfudge. We tried starting a couple of other things while the rest of the series wasn't findable at the conclusion of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing but they we're quite grabbing at him the same way these have been. Not quite our first chaper books, but pretty close. Once we get though these I think it will be time to try something Fantansy or SF.
Meanwhile, bought groceries, did a small amount of cleaning and wrote a song-or-poem-sort-of-thing for which Dee may be able to round up some music.
