2/17: No words to speak of. It’s been a heck of a last few days. My laptop died, and a new one is on the way. I did surgery but was unable to revive it.
In the interim, I’ve decided to give Vulcan Rising one final pass, and I cannot believe how many word-choice changes I still want to make. I’m not sure in retrospect that this was a good idea. As in, am I making it better or just different? Oh well. I’ve done the first seven chapters. Might as well do the rest.
