Steve’s Update 12/18/2017

(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 week?

  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet”: Edited out to Chapter 9.  The plan is to get the first run done before/around Christmas, then take a break.  I’m also working on the revised plot outline for the second run – which will take 2 months.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: My editor keeps getting hammered, but hoped to have it early this week.
  • Blog: I queued up even more of my personal agile methods.  I may finish this before December.
  • Other Stuff: Got sick so things slowed down.  I also started a new generator and finished my Christmas stuff.

What am I going to do this week:

  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” Just more editing and more on the plot outline.  Fortunately I have the first fifth re-outlined – and it’s going to be not only more fun, but get into some crazier areas.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: Really hope to get editing.
  • Other Stuff: Vacation starts soon, so I will relax – and prepare for Christmas!


  • This has been an odd month with many ups and down, illnesses, and more.  I may make some changes to plans once I slow down during the holiday.
