I actually wrote a story today, out of the blue. It's only about 350 words, but it's still a story! I've sent it to EDF.
Work on Blood and Taxes has slowed to a crawl. I really like it and I'm still having lots of fun with it, but I can tell I need some time to recharge the novel-writing batteries. I'm cool with that. I am working on short stories, so it's not like I'm being lazy.
Still no word from Mundania or the agent. I'm really hoping I hear from both by the end of the month, because this is just ridiculous.
