I'm working on the sequel to the book in my signature. Soon I need to start researching alternative energies--geothermal, wind, nuclear and so on--which is some of the science that will be woven into the sequel.

I'll be in the NaNo cabin too.

Writeminded--good to see you. It seems to me that a lot of threads don't really kick around much. Personally, I try not to intrude on threads where I don't belong (like the next circle) and sometimes the critique threads I feel like an oddball with my opinions anyway. But the accountability threads have been good to keep me writing. I try to check in daily there.
