The day job has been demanding far more hours than its usually due this week, requiring all the time and effort that I'd normally put into writing but hey, gotta keep paying those bills. Turns out I am motivated by money after all, or at least the risk of not having any.  Still, I managed to have some ideas and will attempt to get them down in black and white this week.  No more news from agents yet, so the show must go on as they say.
