--==( Week Off )==--
My week off was fantastic. Enjoyed time with my kids, got to meet their teachers and friends. Even got along with my ex really well (shock!). We had a couple of mini-adventures too. Sunday, it snowed almost all day, so they ended up with no school on Monday! We spent the day playing PS3 and watching movies. Tuesday, it was back to their normal school routine. Wednesday, their mother and I joined them for lunch at school and some other activities that afternoon. We went grocery shopping that night and when we got home, my daughter realized that her backpack was missing! We searched the car and the complex, but didn't find it. The next day (Thursday), I helped put together some things so she would have what she needed for school and their mom wrote notes to her teacher for her missing homework and the librarian for the missing book. However, the Librarian had a surprise waiting for our daughter when she gave her the note. Turns out someone found her backpack at Wal-Mart after we left and turned it in. Wal-Mart found the library book with the school's stamp in the inside and called the school to let them know where her backpack was. The twin's mom and our daughter raced over there right after school to pick it up --- all contents were accounted for. Friday we overslept. It was a race to catch the bus, but too late. So their mom drove them in. Today, I came home, somewhat sad because I had such a great week with them, but also ready to get back to writing.
--==( Sibling Magus )==--
While the kids were in school, I spent my time going over all of the chapters currently posted for Sibling Magus. I was looking for anything that didn't fit correctly, or wasn't consistent. I found a lot of little problems and corrected them all. I also decided to change how Seth addresses the Sheriff, Stephanie Dalton. Previously, he called her Sheriff if he was upset with her, and he called her Stephanie when they got along. I changed that. Now, throughout the story, he calls her Dalton, or the Sheriff (when referring to her by title). I hope this doesn't cause too much confusion.
There were several points where some changes were necessary and one chapter that I all but re-wrote (ch20). So, for those who've kept up with the story week-in and week-out, you'll want to go back and re-read it. I'm sure the story overall will feel more cohesive and less confusing.
As usual, if anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot me an email.
