October did actually happen. I got to the Ixiasoft DITA CMS conference in Montreal; it was excellent. It's cheering to see something I was involved in the beginnings of doing so well. There was a federal election that avoided disaster. (It might have been a good thing; ask me this time next year, after we know what happens to C-51 and a bunch of other issues where Liberal policy is at best dubious.) I got a bit of cycling in. Commonweal #3, tentatively Safely You Deliver, is off to copy-edit after acquiring more unicorn viewpoint. (I may have acquired a bit of extra gibbering.)
I have at long last managed to pull apart the various narrative threats, err, threads, which are (I think) going to turn into Commonweal #4, #5, and #6. There's a pile of notes, chunks of actual narrative of uncertain utility, the beginnings of a formal timeline, and somewhere past 10,000 words on #4 for the... fourth? I think fourth... time. But it has a nice simple plot now, rather than trying to get everything into the one book.
