I've been extremely pleased with this month. I didn't get "Diminished Capacity" completely revised, but that's partly because I have a couple of colleagues reading it who haven't gotten their comments to me. Another change from my goals was that I worked on "Frozen in a Memory" instead of "Poor Richard's Fire" this month, though I exceeded goals in finishing it instead of merely beginning it. This is an auspicious start to 2006, and I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring.
