I'm hoping one of my friends here in General can help me. Relax; it's nothing serious.

After more hardship than I'd like to think about, my novel project, 'Outcast,' is finished. I've already passed over it once for edits, and plan to pass over it again once more just to make sure.

The question now though is, where do I go from here? What's the next step toward eventually getting it published?

I've been busy these past few weeks, editing my novel project and getting it into better shape before getting it beta read.

I'm also working now on getting 'Outcast' ready for a limited Second Life release. It's not much, but it's a start at least.

I could use a little advice.

A novel project I started years ago and went cold is now nearly complete (thanks to some good friends).  When I stopped writing, I also stopped podcasting (rookie mistake, podcasting a novel before it's complete), but now that I'm nearly finished, should I nuke my old audio and start from scratch, or just push through to the end and plan for a re-release?

With the insane weather we've been having in Calgary, I finally buckled down and bought a UPS for my desktop.  Hopefully it'll be one of those things I never have to use, but at least now I'm prepared.

In a word: "Whoa...."
Later this year, #Dragon will deliver a 3D printer to the ISS for +NASA. For the first time ever, NASA will demonstrate the potential for spare parts, and even research materials, to be printed in space.

This is week 3 since I've started back at the gym.  I'm just doing cardio at the moment, 3 times a week for about an hour before heading to work.  This morning I almost...ALMOST...opted not to go this morning, but I managed to power through and get there.

The result?

I went to a writer's meetup last night with the crew from the Fangs and Fonts podcast, a local writing show.  Admittedly I've been away from serious writing in a while, and I found it interesting that the story I used to try and unclog the creative pipes was the sequel to a fan fic I wrote for +Chris Lester 's Metamor City podcast.

It was probably the most fun I've had writing in a while.  I can't wait until next week. :D

Now that I'm more mobile I've been able to get to the gym at a decent time.  It feels good, being able to work out for an hour, shower, and still make it to work nice and early.

Ok, so...Texas.  Love the food, the people have been great so far, but I've just got to know...WHAT IS UP WITH THIS RAIN?!  Holy crap!  I haven't seen a storm like that since...well...ever.

One more night in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and it's back to Calgary.
