Really good commentary from new editor/old friend

An old friend of mine who is a professional editor has apparently decided I write well enough that she's going to keep giving me advice and hints.

This normally would make me happy, but due to the absolutely excellent things she had to say in the first review session I'm pretty much giggling in ecstasy. She not only nailed the problem with Children head on, she nailed it hard in the heart in a way that nobody else has seen before. This is going to be so very awesome.

I'm also (hopefully) going to start working with a new writer's group down here in the South Bay. Likewise this group seems to have a really good feeling, and they are actually writing and publishing so it's a lot more focused and practical. Awesomeness abounds.

Dogsitter in the south bay?

My roommate decided to bail on watching my dogs this weekend, so I'm going to be making 3-4 trips home each day during the con (not the worst problem, being only a few miles).

Unless I can find a dogsitter that someone else knows and trusts down here. Because I'd rather just curl into the Hyatt and wrap my legs around a chair and stay put all weekend if I could, and I'm willing to pay good money for the option.
