Productivity galore

I'm working on two different sections of the same part of the third book of POS. Sounds complicated but it isn't, really. I have two chapters, back to back, that are slowly filling themselves in -- one from start to finish; one where I'm linking the beginning and the end (because the middle is the hardest part to deal with). Overall, I got 14 pages done and I feel good about what's in them. They'll still need to be worked into where they fit the total scheme and timeline, but they're solid enough for now.

So I jaunted up to Niagra Falls, Canada and had a birthday dinner at Tony Roma's -- and spent a LOT on it -- then toodled on back to finish adding bits to one of the sections.

I don't really feel like writing any more, so I thought I'd share some of the places I was in, this month.

First up -- Iowa City, IA. This is the Iowa River drifting through the U. of Iowa.

And this is downtown Milwaukee from the breakwater.

I passed over the Mississippi, too.

But nothing from Chicago. Airports tend to be dreary places...and O'Hare at 3am with stranded people wandering about was just too creepy.
