Jumper

(no subject)

Found out I'm going to be very, very busy for the rest of the year, but that's a very, very good thing.

Also working on an anthology short story that was supposed to be turned in yesterday, but the editor was super nice and gave me an extension. I really like how it's turning out so I hope she does too. I'm hoping to be done with it by the weekend.
