First, I’ll try to have a chapter of Rogue Magic sometime this week. Please forgive me, I’m still battling Through Fire and can’t get my head away. Except there will another chapter of To The Dragons in subscribers area sometime this weekend, because the whole thing has downloaded itself in my head. I think the plan now is after through fire take a couple of weeks and finish the d*mn thing, and see if Toni wants it, and if not bring out on my own.
Yeah, I should be writing The Haunted Air (sequel between WF and RM) and finishing my books for Baen. Now you know why the muses used to be thought to drive people mad. Getting the idiot in the Greek robes to get the needs of business is beyond me. If someone has an idea, let me know. For now, I’m keeping To The Dragons quiet by throwing bits of chapter at it, so it will let me work on what I’m supposed to.
Part of the reason almost nothing happened on Through Fire this week is that I got very sick. The problem is between my being allergic to something in this neighborhood (reminds me of when we lived on the west side and the neighbor’s yard was full of ragweed. Every time they mowed, Dan’s face swelled up. Took us forever to figure the link.) I live in a baseline of “somewhat stopped up” and this illness was gradual, so I was just getting mad at myself for wanting to sleep all the time, and not getting anything done. Until I realized a) I was feverish b) friends scattered throughout the state had the same symptoms. I’ve been using the inhaler, for the first time in months, but I AM feeling better.
I’m now almost well, though this is why I slept 12 hours last night. I’m now going to get more tea and actually sit down to work.
Because stuff must be written.
And yes, there’s other stuff going on, which I’ll report later, maybe. It’s not bad and it’s a personal thing. (And no, I’m not knocked up, though if any of you wants to pray for a miracle similar to oh, the parting of the sea, go for it.) We shall see. We’re starting a new venture and there’s plans crackling about. Depending on how it goes you’ll hear about it later.
Now, having saved the worst for last, Cyn Bagley’s husband passed away from cancer. If you’re praying people, please keep her in your prayers, as her health is far from good, and she needs strength through this time. She’ll be moving to be near family and away from the net for a few weeks. I told her to let us know if she needs anything, and that we’ll be here when she comes back, because she’s family.
And all of you, go and hug your loved ones right now.
