LAST WEEK
  • IMPERIAL RULES: continue getting it ready for publication - PUBLISHED!!!
  • TOP NOTCH: type out the third Olympic event scene - This one has been tougher than I thought it would be. Incomplete.
  • ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: conquer the trouble spot and have it ready for proofreading and critiques - Done...but I found a brand new trouble spot. [Big Grin]
  • (unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - not much got done here
  • SCRIPTED - I'm letting this rest until ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE is done. - Resting.

THIS WEEK
