I did manage to write an article though. It was a short article for beginners on creating/using state stacks in games. Its a fairly easy topic but one that I've seen asked in the Beginners forum every now and then. I sent it off to firstname.lastname@example.org on Sunday. No reply yet, but I'll give them a few more days before I follow it up.
I'm just have to finish off the sound code in my engine and then I'll get down to work on the game. I might have that done tonight, but definitely by tomorrow evening.
