So, after quite some time, I’ve managed to actually work for a whole week on my novel. I suspect this marks an official end to the sabbatical. We shall keep our fingers crossed.

In the intervening time I have finished off another chapter of the Brocade Goat, so the sabbatical wasn’t all laziness and non-productiveness, and at the moment I’m working to finish off the next chapter. After which I’m liable to take a foray back into writing short stories, which is a sphere I’ve neglected horribly these last few months. (But, on the subject of short stories, there’s some happy news which I’m only really able to tell the public about later — how much later, I’m not sure, but I’m looking forward to sharing the news!)
