Another month of this crazy year has come and gone. The spouse and I escaped to Atlanta for a week, to socially distance with friends who also work from home. It was absolutely lovely and reminded me how much I miss conventions this year. The TARDIS drove and charged beautifully on its first road trip, except for the part where an internal sensor broke and wreaked havoc on the passenger-side controls. Always an adventure, I supposed.
Hard to believe that fall is here, and that it’s still possible for 2020 to get worse before it gets better. If you are a United States citizen, please make sure that you are registered to vote. If you live in the United States, whether you are a citizen or not, please complete the 2020 census.

- I completed the detailed outline of book 7, Steel Legacy. It comes in at a bit over 10k words, which is significantly more than my original estimated goal of between 3k and 5k.
- I have not started drafting the book yet, due to the above-mentioned spontaneous vacation.
- I’ve only watched The Old Guard once this month, but I’ve been reading (and writing) a bunch of fanfiction for it. I have no regrets.
- Draft the first 15k words of Steel Legacy.
- Participate in Capclave 2020, which is online this year!
