Current state of the work is: efforts to combat distractions. Because life is full of things that need doing, and it's easy to get distracted from the actual job of putting stories into pixels, I've been writing in the morning before I get out of bed. This involves a certain amount of typing around the kitten swarm, but has the double benefit of Actually Getting The Words Done, and also making me feel good about myself for the rest of the day.

So there's that. I did the first round of revisions on the short story yesterday, and I'm increasingly happy with it. It's called "What Someone Else Does Not Want Printed," which is, as you might know, the second half of an Orwell quote.

More on its disposition when I can.

Also, I just posted two links to podcast interviews (both of them with Scott Lynch as well as me) over on my Patreon.

Next project is seeing if I can get a few more words on Rook and Ruin, which is the possibly final title of the Karen Memory novella I'm working on. I think it's finally coming together--I have to figure out a bit of social engineering to make the caper work.

Capers are hard.

But with a little luck I'll get myself back into the discipline of working and creating every day.

When it feels like the world is burning, sing.
