Readers, I have been remiss in not saying anything here for the past three and a half months. Unfortunately, I can’t offer you any actual writing at the moment: We Sail Off To War is still in progress. It’s only a few solid evenings away of writing from the ending. I’d like to have the next entry posted on Thursday, but I know better than to say that and you know better than to trust me. Writing-wise, I’ve been embarked on two other projects: first, editing We Sail Off To War for possible e-book publication (which is looking pretty good), and second, working on a collaborative universe with a friend (I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but I will hint that I obtained two atlases from 1930 as research material).
In other news, I played Mass Effect 3, complained about the ending, moved on (but not without a measure of melancholy), started learning to play the hammered dulcimer, bought a Nook (the e-ink variety, not one of the tablets), discovered that Games Workshop does not release the Ciaphas Cain books in e-book form, decided to build a good-sized trebuchet this year (there may be pictures when it happens), bought rudder pedals and some other CH Products products to greatly enhance my flight simulation experience, developed a surprising fondness for children’s television show Phineas and Ferb, and probably did a lot of other stuff that didn’t make it over my threshold of easy recall.
Anyway, I hope to dive back into writing soon. It may well not be more of the fantasy series I started with, but in the end it’s my decision, so ha.
