Deaths and Births

Don't worry, I'm not talking pets or humans.

I'm talking, first, my 5 year old 17" Mac Powerbook. It died this weekend. This machine has seen hard use, day in and day out, running 9+ hours a day. It is the tool I used to write pretty much everything since 2003. I will miss you, Mac Powerbook.

On the lighter side, I finished the 2nd draft of a Forgotten Realms novel last night (on my wife's computer). I started this one last March, turned in the 1st draft in December, got back comments, and here we are in February, done! I'm not sure I can divulge the name yet, as it hasn't yet appeared in a catalog or on Amazon.

I have two weeks free before I have to get to work on the second in the trilogy. Perhaps a new laptop solution will find me before then.

Looking forward to the big reveal. Congrats on getting the hardest part done (I think.)

Can't wait to read a copy.

Thanks John. I don't know if the hardest part is done, sadly. In two weeks, I have to outline book 2; that could prove hardest. Until Book 3 next year, that is ;-).

I think that in the short term I'm going to see if I can rehabilitate my old iBook orange clamshell for the outline. Longer term, who knows?

Bruce,

any chance you will write a FR book dealing with Jhaamdath?? I would love to see some psionic goodness for the Realms.

S,

Hmm, an interesting idea, I'll have to think on that.
