Phew. Hot day, too. Then again, what else did you expect for August?
I've resuccitated a few tools with my new found sharpening fu. I can't make them shaving sharp yet, but my hand planes now work, as oppose to not work. Same with the chisels, except that those things have a terrible plastic coating on the outside that makes sharpening them rather irksome. I also did a round with the cooking knives.
I think that the novel needs another round of polishing. I was aiming for a September release, but I may need to push back to October. That won't delay the next novel, however, as the two are in two very different stages. I can easily plot while Hers Truly watches Strawberry Shortcake. I only need about half-an-hour of plotting per day to make progress.
