Steve’s Update 11/13/2017

(This column is posted at and Steve’s Tumblr)

It’s my weekly Scrum style standup for my audience, so what’s up?

So what have I done the last weeks?

  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet”: I am now into Chapter 12 and am planning to blitz on this to try and get the draft done by EOY.  Frankly I think I have to ram through it.  Chapter 11 did not get deployed yet, just got busy.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: Is done and off to editor this week!
  • Giveaway: Food, Culture, and Worldbuilding is free this week to celebrate NaNoWriMo
  • Other Stuff: Mostly just chores and some career planning.

What am I going to do this week:

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: Get it to the editor!
  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” Deploy Chapter 11 – which will be the last one to go out before I buckle down.  Then i buckle down.
  • Other Stuff: Lots of book, professional and speaking events.  Also planning Thanksgiving!


  • The attempt to write more is working really well – if I keep this pace up I’ll have written nearly 50K words.  Which is good for uh . . . not doing NaNoWriMo.
