Touching base

It's been a couple of days since I've posted anything other than story stuff and a couple of comments to other people's posts. So I just wanted to touch base with everyone.

It has been a hectic week. It's crunch time at work and the deadline is tomorrow. Long hours but no panicking so that's good. Everything seems under control so far *crosses fingers*. Did identify a problem yesterday with something which was not working the way it was spec'd. But got the client to agree that it was a mutual problem so they're not expecting it for the deadline. *whew*

It's been strange weather here in Taiwan. In the morning it's dreary and looks like it's going to rain. In the afternoon the sun comes out and it looks like a beautiful summer day. By the end of the day, it's dreary and rainy again. So we try to go out for lunch.

Looking forward to a nice long weekend next week. Going to Boracay in the Phillipines with a group of colleagues. Never been to the Phillipines before.

Was on a roll with writing the current story so finished a couple of more chapters. Working on chapter 11 now. I'm happy that I did manage to develop a new female character who doesn't fall for Avon. Maybe she won't have to die...

I'm in the process of writing a big scene between two of the characters. It started off being adversarial and light; and was meant to be fun. But they decided to have a major blow-up. Ack!!! Now I'm trying to do damage control. Cannot have a story if they refuse to talk to each other. I feel like a referee...between fictional characters!!!
