After writing more than two thousand words last weekend, which represented a real breakthrough compared to what I’d been experiencing for the rest of the month of February, I haven’t written any words this week. This feels like a betrayal of myself. But it can hardly be helped.

What I have done is revise the first ten chapters of Vulcan Rising. Just some cleanup editing. I hope to do another twenty chapters or so this weekend, then finish up with it next week. Then I can truly put this behind me, except for the marketing, and really focus on Walls Ascending.8
