Well, I’m here. I’ve got a ton of catching up to do. I want to thank everyone for their kind messages, and I’ll get back to everyone individually as the week rolls on.

I got a smidgen of writing done yesterday, but also a lot of background writing on both novels. I went over the Hero Factor outline and realized I only have four scenes left of the “Great Swampy Middle” (tm jimbutcher), and my middle climax is already written, so from there it’s on to Act 3 and coasting downhill to the end. That is good news.

It’s amazing how much writing you can accomplish when you just don’t want to think about real life. :
