Erin made progress on the outline for a long story.

Nick edited on his Earth Ends novel.

Benjamin found a long-term client for his writing business.

Ciuin has added characters and two thousand words to Stories of Paris and a thousand to Search for Nightmares.

Laura is developing an idea for a series based on her work for the anthology.
