Dog's barking, can't fly without umbrella.

I feel like I'm slowing down. Probably a mix of burnout and deadlines being behind me. I finished the first pass on my short story for class and emailed it to the special lady friend for feedback and editing.

Class is going well. At the very least I think I'm getting everything done and I at least entertain my other classmates with my writing exercises.

I've been approached to work on another roleplaying game. My hopes are not very high. The person has offered to pay me for some previous work I've done but such payment has not manifested.

Nothing has moved forward with me being in the Kansas workshop. I sent the info to my mom, and have gotten only a minimal response in return. I'll probably have to either figure out an alternate payment route or just give up on going this year. A little disappointing, but I'm feeling less confident lately.

I think that's about it. Come March, I'll start having monthly deadlines for short stories that are due places. I will probably also try to shop some of my other stories around. I've got leads on some additional venues I may try out.
