Well, it’s been a long 3 weeks, during which time I’ve managed to write nothing. Not entirely true – I have about a quarter of the next chapter written. But between travel for work, two weeks of a miserable head cold, repeated attempts (and failures) to actually get xmas shopping done, and all the other joy that comes with the season, well, there hasn’t been a lot of brain left string words together in any coherent way.

Today may actually be the real turning point – I’ve hardly had more than a dozen coughing fits. Chapter 28 has to wait until next Sunday. I’ll try to make it worth the wait.
