What’s Going On

On October 27, 2014 by Seth

I just realized this week how many weeks had slipped by since my last update. Tempus Fugit.

On the writing front, things are going slowly. My attempt to transition from OpenOffice to MSWord has been unsuccessful, largely in part to MSWord being unfriendly to formatting attempts. I still like a lot of the features of MSWord such as the editing features, but it will be impossible to make it do what I want for publishing. I’ve decided to continue writing as I have in OO, and when I want to proof, simply load the file to Word, then make corrections on my OO file. Tedious, but functional. Also, the self-imposed publish deadline has been removed though I am still aiming to wrap up The Coral Arrangement by year’s end.

On the medicine front, I’ve received an invitation to interview at WVSOM next week. This is great news for me, considering it’s the one and only place I want to go. If they accept me, I’ll start school again next July, which gives me nine months to finish books five and six before putting my writing on the back burner and focusing on my studies. I’ll still write, of course, but only when I need a short break from medicine.
