Business Musings: Conferences

It’s a very different world, so different, in fact, that I have to weigh each and every trip for the time it will take away from the connectivity. Conventions often mean that I’ll be slow to respond to business contacts and I’ll get behind on the projects I already have lined up. Instead of being something that generates work, conventions have become something that interfere with work.

Business Musings: Wish I Could Say Gone Fishin’

I had a blog all finished for this week, and it was to auto-post late Wednesday night. It’s all about the World Science Fiction Convention and how to use conferences, but honestly, I don’t want to confuse matters. For those of you who didn’t see the Wednesday morning post, I got into a run-in with […]

Show Trial

Back in September, I went to Germany for as the guest of honor for Elstercon in Leipzig.  I took time on that trip to visit Nuremberg for research on a book.  The book isn’t done; it’s still percolating.  But the first short story from that trip–a novella, actually–has just appeared. The story is called “Show […]

Appearance in Tennessee

The kind folks at Chattacon in Chattanooga have asked me to be one of their guests of honor at the convention this week.  The con will be held at the Choo-Choo Hotel.  If you’re in the area, please drop by.  Here’s the link to the convention: Chattacon

September 2010 Recommended Reading List

September was as good a reading month as I had hoped it would be.  I read a number of wonderful things on my long flights and during my travels.  Much of what I read was on Kindle and on my iPhone.  I do have a rant below about format, simply because some major publishers don’t […]

The Business Rusch: International Travel Tips Part Two

The Business Rusch: International Travel Tips Part Two Kristine Kathryn Rusch Great discussions after last week’s post on International Travel Tips.  Read the comments section.    I learned things. I’m sure you will too. I’m going to touch on a few things that people said in the comments section, but I’m not going to reiterate […]

The Business Rusch: International Travel Tips Part One

The Business Rusch: International Travel Tips Part One Kristine Kathryn Rusch Initially, I thought of doing this topic as a separate post, part of the travel writing I did while in Germany. But then I realized that I left travel out of the Freelancer’s Guide (more or less), and I figured I needed to spend […]

The Mountain/Monument–and Auerbachs Keller

After the convention ended, the con committee wanted to take the Bears and I to the Monument. I wasn’t that thrilled at the first mention. Monuments—when you travel, you see a bunch of them.  They’re…monuments. But when Thomas Braatz told me about this monument early in the week, he had trouble with the word.  (He […]

Elstercon Part Two

I wrote my last post on Elstercon in my last moment of free time on my trip.  On that last Saturday afternoon, I grabbed some lunch, did a few errands, and then wrote the blog post.  Afterwards, I headed back to the convention and didn’t leave until late. I spent the rest of the afternoon […]

The Business Rusch: Small World

The Business Rusch: Small World Kristine Kathryn Rusch Yes, I’m finally home.  I got home late Tuesday night and I’ve spent the day doing laundry, staring at my piled-up e-mail, and petting cats.  This column will not be that complex because I thought I’d have a day between getting home and writing the column.  Ah, […]
