Several things have been happening, and my apologies for the lack of updates. I've been very busy as of late, with the training, the social events, and the work I've been doing with my editor.
The project is still very much alive, as we've now gotten to the half way in terms of editing. We've just finished up the edits and the evaluation for Chapter 11, and things are moving along well. I've recieved invaluable feedback from the editor, and friends, so that's very positive. This process itself has sparked interesting changes in the people involved, from new awareness, new found abilities, to a sense of overwhelming clarity at times.
During the time I've had since the April completion of book I, I've been busy training myself, upgrading myself, and essentially saturating myself with information. Things from Psychology, to NLP, to Hypnosis, to Kung Fu, to music, ... and my personal favourite, the combination of all of these that has enhanced my rapport and conversation skills.
Through my experiences at work, I've been able to utilize much of my above training, and have observed the results directly. The results have been fascinating. Many of the experiences that I've been harvesting will be embedded in some way shape or form within the next series of books.
Book II is looming, and is never far from my mind. Right now, I'm taking a bit of a break from the creative process, and allowing this rest period to mature me. When I feel ready to begin, I will. But until then, there's much work to be done.
