Well, I think I've been productive. I've executed a bunch of essentially administrative tasks (Con programming surveys, emails needing answering, etc.), did most of a major rewrite on an existing short piece, did minor rewrites on three other short pieces, submitted some stuff, wrote a decent chunk of a proposal for a novel called Geopolis. ("The word for world is city. Covering every inch and acre from polar ice caps to the tropical shores, it has stood from time out of mind.")

That's probably 5,000 words of new fiction today, counting the work on the proposal, as well as umpteen emails and fiddly bits beyond that. I really want to get the major rewrite done on Monday, and a couple of other small things. I have to get on to the Escapement CEM pretty darned pronto, and the next novel looms. (Details TBA.)

Wizards of the Coast did a fantasy city-world called Ravnica for its Magic:The Gathering line. I only skimmed through one of the books, but I enjoyed the concept of a city-world when I played the card game. Happy writing with your novel!
