Hi everyone! I am ensconced in North Carolina, near Wilkesboro, which is an hour from Greensboro or Charlotte. The good news is that Ch. 104 is complete at 10,331 words and I am 744 words into Ch. 105. The bad news is that things are looking very crunch-time busy at MIRI up until the end of 2014 once I get back, so I have revised significantly downward the probability that I will be able to start posting the final arc before the end of 2014. Grump grump, trust me I’m not happy about it either. Regardless, I shall still try to storm my way through the draft of the entire final arc while I am in North Carolina.
Email me if you’re reading this and would with high probability come to an HPMOR meetup near Wilkesboro, NC. I don’t know yet if that will happen, but it seems worth checking.
The next Progress Report will post on September 12th at 5PM Pacific Time. I’m putting it there (two weeks from now) to give myself an incentive to have more progress to report.
