MacBook is back in fighting trim, after an unusually difficult Time Machine restore. Still not sure what was wrong there, but all is good now.
The space opera now has a working title, Sunspin. It’s 99-44/100% likely that will not be the final title, but now I can call it something besides “the space opera.”
the_child asked me today what state was Red Stick the capital of. Heh.
Now to poke at Sunspin with a stick for a little while. (Yes, I swear I’m about to write some short fiction, but the novelbrain hasn’t yet shut up, and I need to play with it for a bit.)
