So, for various and sundry reasons which are too many and too long to enumerate here, I haven't put new words into memory for about a month now. Bad David. No cookie.

However, tonight I finally managed to get my head back on right and started part 4 of Span of Empire. (I'm putting the other project on the back burner to simmer for a while.)  This is a good thing, for which I would ordinarily reward myself with a virtual cookie. However, it wasn't very many words, comparatively speaking, so it merits only a cookie crumb. Tomorrow I shall do better.
