Let it not be said that I neglected the deadlines of some of the stuff I do. I've been devoting those hours where I'd hit a wall during my draft rewrite to finishing my entry in the annual Bolter and Chainsword Librarium Painting Challenge, and somehow it turned out alright. Much like everything else in … Continue reading Addendum: Librarium Painting Challenge Vow Complete!
My own afterword at the end of my rewritten first draft pretty much sums up the frustration and disappointment I felt over the course of its creation: This is pretty much a complete rewrite of the draft I initially submitted, and is literally the product of almost a week’s worth of long evenings.

I'm … Continue reading Status Report: March 26
Hmm. I really wanted to go faster, but some progress is better than no progress at all. Depending on how it goes for the rest of the evening, I might be able to start on the other draft tomorrow. That's something to be happy for, I think. But, my, is the draft shorter this time … Continue reading Status Report: March 25
