I expect to be doing it, so that means during that time I write, or attend to writing business. Even if I only write 50 words, or if I edit away 500 words, it's still writing.

The first one focuses on a group of merchants traveling between homeworlds and the second focuses on Origon and a new space-faring invention.
I'm also reworking an unrelated fantasy novel set in a land like the antebellum southern plantation culture of the US mixed with Babylonian themes.(less)
