And the mighty Mules continue their march toward March.

Yes, the University of Central Missouri Mules won their 17th game in a row this evening over Truman State 77-63, tying their second-best start since 1990. The Mules are now 17-0, (8-0 in conference) this year with 10 games to go in the regular season. The other good news tonight was Emporia State lost their game to Northwest Missouri, dropping them to second place in conference at 16-1, 7-1 in conference.

Yes, I'm rather proud of my alma mater. The Mules are one of four teams still undefeated in NCAA Div II and one of only eight undefeated teams among all the four year colleges (NCAA Div I, II, III, NAIA I, NAIA II).

And it's a go

Got a note today from Marco. Short and sweet.

"Heard back from Paula at CBS. Outline approved."

So, barring my inability to get this puppy done on time, I'll be in The Sky's the Limit, the 2007 Star Trek Anthology. Course, it would help if I was a tad more focused, but it's been tough writing these past few days. I got some words written (538 words), but I'm going to have to really bust my butt this weekend to make up the lost days.

I can see where I'm going to have to trim Redshift down some also. I'm already pushing 8600 words and I've got three more big scenes to write. Oh well. At least I have some areas where trimming isn't going to be painful. It's the other section I'm going to have to trim that's going to be painful. It's a really interesting scene between Pulaski and Wesley, but I'm going to have to look and see how much of it is accessory and how much is actually pushing the story forward.

Writing short stuff isn't easy. I'm much more a novella/novel person.

Also, got half my other short story outlined. Just waiting to hear from the editor that the plot has been approved and when he's going to need it by.
