I hope everyone in the US enjoyed a fun, long Independence Day weekend. I gave most of the Palladium crew the entire three days off, though Matthew Clements, Alex and I only took the 4th off, and spent the rest of the weekend working away on Megaverse® in Flames™ and The Rifter® #67. Speaking of which, I sure hope none of you think we are looking for sympathy when I talk about working through weekends and putting in long hours. I talk about long hours and working through the weekends so that you know we are not resting on our laurels, but working hard at producing the products you want.

A lot of people seem to think writing (and art and editing, for that matter) comes fast and easy, like rolling off a printer. We wish. Some days you bang out 20-30 pages in that 12-16 hour day. Other times, it’s 5 or 6 pages in the same amount of time. There are days when you’re pulled away by the demands of the business or the writing just comes slowly. That could be due to being tired, emotional state of mind, working on a tough or tricky part of the book (i.e. game mechanics, stats, or something high concept), or just because. I've been writing for more than 30 years now, and there are days where I still can’t figure out why writing went poorly or so well.

Happy Independence Day. May it be fun and safe.

Since it’s the holiday weekend, and we are busy as all get out, I’m going to keep this update very short.

I’m giving most of the Palladium crew Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. Trust me, they deserve it. I’m afraid Matthew Clements and I will be working at least part of the weekend, though I do need to take at least one day off. I've been working so many long hours and days in a row that I have no clue what day it is and I’m feeling pretty exhausted.

The good news is that writing is still going along well and we have all kinds of good stuff in the final throes of development. Megaverse® in Flames, The Rifter® #67, Dead Reign™ Sourcebook: Graveyard Earth™ and a surprise (one of our secret projects) should all go to the print in a week or so.
