Worked on my SC novel--still haven't finished that chapter even though I am close. Hopefully tomorrow or the next day.
My MC woke up, not sure how much I should describe of the action that happened while he was out. Or if I should make that happen now that he is awake.

Started the-hopefully-final revision of Two Struggles. Getting some of the kinks-nitpicks-out of it.

About three fourths of the way through the first chapter.
