I'm gearing up for the adventure that will be the writing challenge of October. See, I've got a lot to do between now and the end of the month, when I (along with a strong contingent of the CWSB gang) will be heading off to the World Fantasy Convention in San Jose. It would be very good (required, in fact) if I were to have the new novel The Office of Shadow completed before I leave, in addition to getting in all of my existing comic book work. The best way to do that is to do a writing challenge. This isn't a competition, but the "winner" will probably get dinner bought for him at World Fantasy. Not that it's a competition.
But it is.
