The house I was looking at has sold to someone else; I wasn’t able to offer quite the price they wanted. There are plenty of other fish in that sea, though.
My writing is getting back up to speed, but slowly. I wrote five days this week, for the first time in a while, but I still didn’t manage any short stories.
On the other hand, I did do a bit more work on my stalled WIP, Conkers.
Good luck and happy writing!
