On the road again: Sasquan, Spokane, day 2

Today was chock full of con stuff.  After a quite reasonable amount of sleep, I headed to the convention center for a presentation by my friend and exceptional artist, John Picacio.  As always, I enjoyed seeing both his old and his new work.  I've been fortunate enough to have John do the covers to two of my books, and I've loved both works.

After a quick and reasonably tasty lunch at a nearby Mexican restaurant, I dived into a three-hour writers workshop, where I was one of three pro writers critiquing the works of three newer writers.  The sessions went well, and the event ended early enough that I could make it to Publisher Toni's Baen Traveling Roadshow presentation.

Dinner was a treat from Publisher Toni for a group of Baen authors.  We ate salads and (mostly) steaks at Clinkerdagger, a local institution.

In the latter part of the evening, I hung with friends new and old in the hotel bar.

After now having caught up on non-PT work, I intend to sleep a great deal.

I do have to say that Clinkerdagger is a great name for a restaurant with steaks.

Very true.
