Not that I'm not glad you're here. It can get lonely sometimes.
So, I started work, and that ate a week. Then I went on vacation, and that ate another week. But I got to do some awesome stuff and meet some awesome people, so I'm not sad.
I've worked some on The Neif , but most of that has been trying to catch up to where I was when I paused writing it. Due to me not being as paranoid as I should be, about 10K words of The Neif were lost. ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR WORK. DO NOT TRUST "THE CLOUD" TO KEEP IT SAFE. The internet is terrible about hanging on to things that you'd really rather stuck around. So, that's what's been up.
I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo starting today, which is awesome. It's basically a chilled out version of NaNoWriMo, where you can set your own wordcount goals, or goals for amount of time spent editing or researching. There aren't regions, so you can be a lone wolf, join a cabin of people with similar writing interests, or hop in a cabin with your friends. Last time I did this (two years ago, ouch) those locally interested met up for write-ins and s'mores, because no camp is complete without s'mores.
Wanna know a secret? I totally didn't start planning on the beta version of Story Shop for my NaNo novel this year. Since I'm definitely not filling it in with the bits of the story I have in my head already, I won't tell you the working title, Head Games.
