It’s certainly been an interesting month.
Things aren’t too bad where I am, at least where the COVID-19 outbreak is concerned. The BC provincial government has generally been pretty good about taking precautions, and our new case count is both low and generally declining (nearly 2/3rds of active cases in British Columbia have already recovered).
That being said, I’m still taking precautions, sheltering in place, keeping my distance from other people, washing my hands regularly, and doing all the other stuff I can to avoid catching or spreading the infection. My chances of getting the Coronavirus are slim, but it takes a collective effort to keep it that way.
In the meantime, I’m now about halfway done the last iteration of Chapter 5. After that, I’ve got the two versions of Chapter 6 to write – which is where stuff really starts going off the rails.
This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are now up, as is the first installment of A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding, a new Patreon-funded column about the mechanics of well… writing and worldbuilding.
