Maps and Mad Men (no spoilers)

Well, the map is just about done and it's prettier than ever. I just have to add the cities back in tonight. Then it's back to the actual writing.

I watched season one of Mad Men this past week, mostly forcing it to share the screen with Photoshop or Microsoft Word. It's gorgeous-looking and damn interesting, much more so than the simple slice of life in 1960 that I was expecting. A couple of the characters even went in some unexpectedly dark directions. The writing is pretty crisp, although I did find the pacing a bit sluggish, but that might have just been me since I wasn't giving it my full attention.
