I have, however, been pretty busy, lots of road work, short scheduling, that kind of stuff. I do make a concerted effort to schedule my time, but sometimes life intrudes. Being reactive to real-life situations requires rapid changes in plans.
Right now I am working on a chapter of "Christina", and hope to have it posted early next week, and we can get on with the normal output schedule once more.
To all you who emailed me, thank you! I appreciate that you're paying attention and your comments spur me to greater efforts.
