I am experiencing page-loads on the site of up to five minutes per page, and a current average of about four minutes per page. Because of this, until I track down the problem with my connection, I am going to be very, very scarce in the community. If you need to get in touch with me, please DO NOT use the community Private Message system — I’m not checking PMs right now. Use the e-mail link.
Note also that due to the double deadline (Midnight Rain proposal revision, plus Talyn first draft,) I’m reading all my mail, but not answering any writing questions via e-mail (and responding to very little e-mail of any sort). I’ll keep checking the main discussion board — ask any writing questions you may have there. If I miss them, the other writers in the community will be able offer some help.
