"Confessions" is moving right along now at a good clip. That makes ten thousand words - give or take - for the year so far, a far cry better than the past few seasons of writing and more on par with 2003, when I was cranking out chapters and short stories in a torrent of verbosity.
Speaking of short stories, I urge you to hop on over to Jason F.C. Clarke's Biggerboat at read his latest: "Johnny Sniper and the Cave of Fear". Good stuff!
