An absolutely fantastic day! We started with the SFWA business meeting, wherein the results of the election were announced. I was not unanimously acclaimed for Director-at-Large, though there were 292 (I think) aye votes. There were also nays and write-ins. Of course, I’m now Vice President, but the overwhelming positive vote was nice. When it was my turn to speak, I thanked those who voted for me as Direvtor, then paused and said, “Surprise!”

The highlight of my day, though, had to be sitting down to talk to Jane Yolen about her time as SFWA President!

The Nebula banquet and Awards were fun, too.

Each table had a lovely robot centerpiece created by Don Jones.Art robot centerpiece

Sadly, most of my photos of the actual ceremony are blurry and not worth sharing.

There were a number of alternate universe acceptance speeches after the awards by nominees who did not win.alternate universe. ebula Award winners

And I got my picture taken with Jane Yolen, who said, “You make me feel tall!”Erin with Jane Yolen

And after I got up to my room, I wrote 115 words and this post, and now I am going to sleep!

A lovely final half day at the conference, breakfast for volunteers, conversation with others, and a great neuroscience talk by Ben Kinney.

And then escaping the area before the hockey fans arrived, the beginning of a long drive home, wherein I’m sure I annoyed the Google Maps lady by ignoring her instructions to take the turnpike. (Turn here to take 476. Okay, take the next exit to intersect with 476. Okay, the next one? No? Fine, take Pennsylvania 33, then. See if I care!)

Anyway, it’s been a wonderful break, and tomorrow is all about catch-up. But I did get 104 words!
