Once again, I’ve been activated. And once again, this could mean a lighter touch on the blog and social media (though that didn’t happen last time, contrary to my predictions). Depends on the op tempo once I report.
This comes at a good time. FORTRESS FRONTIER has a completed 1st draft and I am currently awaiting inputs before collating my notes and pressing ahead with a rewrite. I’ve also completed a 1st draft of another trilogy proposal and I have some other pitches that I’m currently hammering out. CONTROL POINT isn’t coming out for 7 months and FORTRESS FRONTIER isn’t due until after that. So, if there was ever a few months where it’s okay for me not to be writing full-time, this is it. Also, I’m just being activated to augment staff at a stateside garrison. This isn’t Afghanistan.
Don’t be shy about sending your pal Myke an email in the coming months. When you’re deployed, there’s a weird sense of the world turning on without you. Your friends develop inside jokes that you’re not in on. You see pictures of parties that you missed posted to Facebook. That part sucks, and folks tapping you on the shoulder to remind you that they poured one out for you at the last shindig goes a long way towards softening the impact. You can reach me on the PERSONNEL TAB. Just sayin’
