Still on a high after attending LTUE. Not really prepared to set any goals yet as I'm still getting back into the flow. However, I'm concentrating on weaving some rising actions from the three view point characters in this new fantasy novel I'm working on. Other than that, not much.

Not all that much work on the novels. Working on a couple of longer stories and a couple very short tales.

Next week I want to get "The Courier" organized and the last chapter written and the last scene written revised. I need to find a place for both too. And decide if I should split the longest chapter. I may take out one short section and add it to that scene I referenced. It will be okay if what is left over is still the longest chapter by far,
