Head in a hole

I know I've been rather quiet except for the Wednesday glimpses of Mayotte, but I'm still here.

I'm participating in the OWW synopsis focus group (sorry, too lazy to do links) and am learning a lot. I'm sure I'm going to come away with a usable synopsis for The Traveler's Daughter, and I hope I help others achieve the same. I'm holding off on advancing with Witherwilds until I have the time to work out a synopsis for it. I want all the motivations, arcs, and plot clear and laid out up front before I drown in so much detail I don't know which way is up.

I'm still writing on To Be Undone; I've got 50K + under my belt. Today, I realized that I'm at a point where I can summarize a fair bit and move on to another tack. For this draft, I'm probably very close to the 2/3 mark.

I've also been watching a lot of rugby. Yes, I know, the majority of you couldn't give a flying flip for my favorite sport, but there you have it. One more weekend and the 6 Nations tourny will be over. That went by too quickly!

I've been working on my Spanish, going to dance class, going walking with N, reading...keeping busy, in other words.
