Two good updates for me today. One, there's a decent chance I'll get a promotion at work, or at least a redefined job description and a new role. Considering I've been doing the same gig for 13 1/2 years, a change of pace is something I really need.
Two, I've been working on a story for a while and I ran into a tough spot last week. With a bit of good advice & prompting from the helpful people on a writing forum I frequent, I think I worked through the problems tonight. 10,500 words down!
On the obnoxious side, today I got a summons for jury duty for July 14. I'm on vacation from July 4 - July 13, so while it doesn't directly interfere with my plans, there was a possibility that I was going to extend my vacation a few days, and I'll most likely have to nix that now. There's still a chance I won't get summoned; I have to call some number the weekend before to find out for sure. I could ask to have my summons delayed, but I need to firm up my plans first.
