  1. Thanks, Bryce! I love these things. They’re like games.

    As a side note, you may want to check out WriteItNow; it’s a piece of writer’s software with idea and character generators built it. I haven’t tried it yet because I haven’t really had time, but I’ll fool with it some before long. Might even buy it someday if I ever get back to work again.

    Hope your celebration was a happy one and God bless, bud.
