Just got the second proof for the softcover in. Now just waiting on the hardcover and crossing my fingers, since that's the one which really had issues last time.

The sky is turning to ash and falling.
I took today off intending to have it be a vacation, but, that would require more going outside than is safe to really take advantage of at this point.
I kinda wonder if they ended up cancelling work today anyways at this rate...

One of my books (Leaves of Chiaroscuro), and a lot of other great Fate books are available on the Bundle of Holding.

I backed this Kickstarter for more Lamentations of the Flame Princess material. It needs some love! Just a few more days left

I'm at that stage where I'm feeling overwhelmed, and like nothing really is going to go right.
Now, there actually are several things going right, but, they add a lot to my plate. Then there's things going less than stellar, or downright awful too, including my budgie Domino dying this week. That pretty much has painted everything in a negative light.

I got in the print proofs for A Far Off Land, but have to redo them. Means the print will be a bit later than I had hoped.
But, the hardcover didn't turn out quite how I wanted, and there's a few issues with the interior (which is by and large really lovely).
Among these issues, is that I have been using this G+ collection a lot, and included the link in the book. Of course, just after I ordered the proofs I find out G+ will be no more. So.... now including that in the book just seems like a bad idea too.
I want to cry just a little bit.

In any case, I plan to send the new version in by this weekend. That still means I might not be able to send them out to backers until next month or even slightly later (I really hope not slightly later), but, the only other option is sending out something that I believe needs just a little more tweaking (I'd rather not do that).

If you want to keep in touch with me after G+ shuts down in 2019, I am on Twitter... I'm not super active on it, and can't say I really 100% get the platform yet. But, I'm on there.
I may find some other social network to use the way I've been using G+, and I'm open to suggestions.

Continuing to weight lift, and track my exercises. I've done weight lifting every day this week, up until today. I may make today a rest day.
I've noticed that when I first started I would be sore and it would take me a few days to recover. Now, I have hardly been getting DOMS. I've been able to increase the reps with the weights I was using before definitely, and am moving to higher weights (with lower reps) than I could previously handle. So progress!

Interestingly some of the people around me have, however, noticed changes that happen to me visually before I even notice anything (I kinda just look the same to me, but apparently not to everyone else around me).

There was a long period of time where I very much didn't think I'd ever be in half-decent shape, but now I'm doing things I really couldn't come close to doing before.
Still tracking on Fitocracy as well, which, while I get the impression might be a bit past its prime has been really handy

I'm thinking of getting some retraining, and this looks like a pretty exciting opportunity!
