As you can tell from the dates of the other threads on this board, I haven't been posting here in a while. The Night Shade Discussion Area had gotten invaded by spam-spreading bots, and it made even browsing a pain in the ass, so I just stopped visiting. Then last week, on a whim, I checked out the ol' space, and lo and behold, all the spam was gone, vanquished by our humble hosts, and banished to the nether regions of cyberspace from whence they came.
So. I have a lot to tell y'all about.

I got some writing done on the tower novel, and am now up to 18,400 words.
The Fall semester at St. Augustine's College begins next week, and I'll be teaching three English composition classes.
Over the summer, we traveled to Madison for WisCon, Des Moines for DemiCon, and Singapore to visit Janet's family. And after receiving some medical news, we decided that we will be hauling up stakes and moving to Singapore sometime next summer; rather than take up space here, I'll just point you to my blog entry with the details.
So that's pretty much what I've been up to since March. I'm glad to be back here again, among such groovy folk. So, what have you been up to?
