What I did the week after my vacation.


Worked at the DayJob.

Then, worked some more at the DayJob. Worked overtime.

Worked lots of overtime, since tasks assigned to me do not stop coming when I’m not there, and no one else does them while I’m gone. And if their execution is delayed too long, they explode.

Managed to get to the Funky Monkey exactly once, and managed to write some small amount… just enough to convince me I was on the right track. This was the high point of my week. Then, back to the grind.

Result: I basically feel like I’ve been hit with a hammer. Tired and frustrated…

But then Lee posted this comment which made me feel a whole lot better.

So, thanks, Lee — that was good stuff to hear!

My plan for next week: No More Overtime!

    I read Lee’s post and soooooo agree with all of that. I found the Steerswoman’s Road through an Amazon recommendation and bought it. O frabjous day! What a story you have woven. I’m so glad I discovered your books.

    I just wanted to tell you that as a biologist, I love your attention to details about the flora and fauna in the setting, and of course the demon world was fantastic. I believe you have ensorcelled me.

      Melissa —

      Ah, coming from a biologist, that’s especially nice — And good to know that all the work I did on the Outskirts ecology and Demon Lands stood up to the scrutiny of a pro!
