    Crazy Busy

    Well, November is packed with (writing/editing) work:

    * Freelance editing project, at my day-job rate.
    * Starting DFRPG edit work Real Soon Now. [1]
    * Working on STotC at odd moments. [2]
    * UA PDF project progressing. [3]
    * Day-job editing of many, many 2 yr old DOCs.
    * Once again, pondering Hyperworld. [4]

    I think that this weekend is the last anyone will see me in a social context until December.

    NOTES:
    [1] That would be the Dresden Files RPG.
    [2] That would be the Strange Tales of the Century sourcebook.
    [3] That would be the Thin Black Line, the Order of Saint Cecil sourcebook.
    [4] That would be the revisiting of my "Hyperworld vs. the Invadroids" CiaB. . . and a backdoor new edition of T&J under the PDQ# rubric.
