I'm sorry to say it, all, since some of you are paying the price, but it is nice to have a little time to myself again. Before digging myself into deadlines and such, I was working on Iceland. This was just a couple of hours work. It needs cities, adjustments to elevations and what small hydrofeatures that will exist, but on the whole I'm pleased with the size of the thing. I felt initially that it would not cover so many hexes.
I have been basically relaxing all week, aside from working in a bakery on 95-degree days, as the city is going through a heat wave. The house is so hot it is hard to sleep at night. Still, yes, I am sorry about letting this break spin out overlong, and I do plan to get back to writing. I hope I can hammer out a few words this evening, if it would just bloody well cool off.
In the meantime, there's a little Iceland: oh, how I wish I were there.
There is one feature on the map that shouldn't be there, as it wasn't "land" until 1963, the year before I was born. But what the hell. I've said, it isn't the real world; it's my world.
