Progress Report, in which I pat myself on the back

Tax guy has come and gone.  I was pretty well prepared this time around, though of course it was a mad scramble to get everything ready.  Still, I have to say that after doing this for <mumble> years, I have a pretty decent system for it.  Not perfect, by any means, but pretty decent.

Tax season is also the time when I appreciate anew the database I built lo these many years ago, which I use to track not only submissions, but also expenses and sales.  And damn, is it slick, able to retrieve the necessary data with just a few keystrokes, which can then be easily imported to Excel.

Not that tracking sales is normally a difficult task for me, you understand—especially last year.  But still . . . it’s a pretty slick database.  Y’all don’t mind if I pat myself on the back, do you?  Thanks.

Once I got taxes out of the way, I managed to bang out another thousand words of that new scene for From Earth I Have Arisen.  Again, my inability to multitask is apparent.  But hey, word count, is word count, so here’s Magic Meter:

It’s gonna be a bit longer than I had thought, looks like.  No surprise there.  And once I finish it, I have to figure out how to insert it into the body of the novella.  I might have to break it into a couple of pieces.

But those are concerns for later.  Taxes are done for another year, and I can get back to revising this thing, which I hope to have finished by the end of the month.

Write Club update:  Just over three months to a tier one reject from Night Terrors.

Nose, grindstone.  I believe you two are acquainted.
