I’ve been quite busy this week, so I haven’t spent the time on the blog that I’d like. I’ve spent the day today rewriting chapter 19 of Jake and the Dynamo, which is still set to post at the usual time of midnight tomorrow night.
In the near future, I think I’ll be adding a news roundup for Fridays to go along with the web novel and irregular reviews.
And just for a quick update, I am currently working a night shift, and next week I’ll be moving and preparing to start school. Chapter 19 of Jake and the Dynamo is drafted, but my writers’ group informs me that it’s not ready to go. As you could likely guess from the end of chapter 18, it’s mostly an action sequence (like about every other chapter, by design).
The action sequences take me longer to get ship-shape than the other parts, so I’ll probably let it percolate for at least a week while I work on chapter 20. As mentioned before, I’d like to work on getting my buffer back, so even though I managed to race out chapter 18 last week, I’m going to put this officially on hiatus. For real this time.
Should have another review up tomorrow, and Jake and the Dynamo will post Sunday night as usual.
I’ve been out for a few days as I’m trying to catch up on things. We’ll see if we can get another review up in the near future.
And, of course, chapter 7 of Jake and the Dynamo will go up tonight at midnight Mountain Time, on schedule.

I just finished a series, and I seem to be getting over my flu bug, or whatever I had. I’m taking screenshots now and should have a new review up tomorrow.
I was going to spend the day on a new essay, but I want to finish the draft of chapter 16 of Jake and the Dynamo to keep my healthy ten-chapter buffer, and I need to finish editing and fact-checking an essay I’ll be submitting to another venue.
And I’ve come down with a flu or something.
Anyway, chapter 6 of Jake and the Dynamo will go up tonight as usual.

I’m an archaeologist by day and a magical girl geek by night; I’m behind on reviews, but it’s field season for me now, so I’m working long hours, and I want to spend the evening on chapter 15 of Jake and the Dynamo, as I want to keep the novel updating on a weekly basis for as long as I can.
So … no new material tonight.
