Hello!  Feeling mostly better, if a bit behind, but definitely back on track.

That illness finally stopped kicking my butt.  I figured out that many people at work were sick, so it wasn’t that I wasn’t getting better, but my body kept fighting off new invaders.  So I worked from home a bit and it helped.

This is important – if you can work from home stay home if sick AND if everyone else is.

So what have I done the last week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:  Past the halfway point and on a tear.  My goal now is to finish the technical editing run in mid-October, then do a very serious read-through and integrate any prereader feedback.  November looks good (but I gotta get to the cover)
  • Way With Worlds: Not much I’m afraid.
  • Other: Nothing that stands out this week except I feel better!

What am I going to do this week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: Keep editing!  I want to get through 1-2 chapters.
  • Way With Worlds: I am going to get back on track this week, with a target for, sadly, probably November as well.  The first book will be on Organizations in general, the second on specifics.
  • Other: An easier week hopefully!  Also I’d like to do more blogging.
