I had a very successful day yesterday, Gentle Reader. Lots of little things accomplished: good news from my first Beta reader on Heartless
, just enough word count on Secret Project F to give to my agent without worry, most of my packing done, bank dealt with, and decisions made. Now I feel I can head off with at least some
of my affairs in order.
Hotmail has decided, in its infinite wisdom, to remove the vacation away feature. Probably because too many were using it to notify of a change of email address leaving hotmail. In any event, this has forced me to leave, too. Sigh. This means that any messages directed to my hotmail address will go unanswered while I am off the grid for the next few weeks. I do not mean to be rude, it's just that my footman is forgetful. When I return, I will be leaving hotmail for good.
I've prepped an FAQ to post tomorrow morning before I leave, so if people come searching they will know where I am. I look forward to meeting many of you over the next month and I hope you all enjoy Blameless
