Well, it’s that time of year, which means I spent two whole days without working on anything — aside from a brief mid-afternoon discussion on Christmas afternoon about playtesting something we’re working on at Catalyst Game Labs. I’ve been pretty busy for all of December [and, really, since Catalyst became a go!] and so it was nice to sit down and relax and spend some quality time with family.

I’m back at it now; working on final corrections on several books that are going off to press early in January, and starting on a book that should … should … also go to press in early January. I do like making miracles. And I’ll need to, because I have an actual vacation booked in January. It’s enough of a vacation that I’m contemplating *not* taking the laptop, and I sure as hell aren’t going to spend the hours before leaving copying work files over to it, even if I do take it.

This has been a hell of an interesting year. I hope to find some time over the next week to write a bit of a year-in-review post. Whether you’re a friend of mine, someone who stumbled onto this site via a web search, a Shadowrun or Classic BattleTech fan, or someone else entirely — I hope that 2007 was a fine year for you and that 2008 will be even better. Happy seasons!
