I’ve been busy lads, sorry. After my ridiculous reading binge that led to 39 book reviews in just over two months, I turned my mind to other matters. I’m still reading, currently up to #43, but I’ll get round to reviewing them later 
So, what other matters?
First and foremost is the impending release of the full-colour Daygame Mastery second edition. It’s taken longer than I expected purely because I decided to spend more time writing new material for it. When the 468 pages from the first edition were re-laid in the Infinite style, it came to 401 pages. It’s now 481, the extra 80 pages being entirely new content. So, about a 20% increase.
It also takes a ton of time to carefully monitor the layout to get everything right. These are complex pages with a lot going on. I sent my latest amendments on Friday. If I’m lucky it’ll be finished by the end of the month but don’t bank on it.
The other big project was returning to volume three of the memoir, Younger Hotter Tighter. I’d written the first half by the beginning of January, twenty chapters, then parked it. It’s good to cool off from a book and let ideas settle, then come back to it cold. The book review and Mastery projects pushed it back further.
So, this week I wrote four more chapters and a total of 25k words. It’s up to 95k in total but there’s still 16 chapters remaining for me to chip away at. I hope to reach the end of chapter 30 before I begin travelling, and then cheerfully plod on while I’m on the road. Don’t expect to see YHT any time soon but be sure it will be done. This isn’t an idle fancy. My memoir project will be completed this year.
I have ten days of hibernation remaining.
 So far, my reviews total almost 50k words, which is the length of a short novel all on its own.
