Busy few weeks (also, I need your opinions)

So, I’ve been working 6 days a week recently, and thought that I would have the motivation to complete June’s edition of Camp NaNoWriMo.  That was a wash.  I’ll try again in August.  The exhaustion is ruining my writing process.

Then there’s the homesickness I have to contend with.  As much as I hated Webster, I liked it better than Florida.  This place is a hellhole, Jacksonville especially. (Apologies to anyone who lives here.)  Being away from most of the people that I love, in a place that is so completely inhospitable and, frankly, weird, has taken its toll.  I’m a New England kind of girl, and the mindset that Florida is putting me in has brought me down hard.

I’m trying to get a handle on it, though.  It’s hard to run a blog about writing when you can’t get any done, right?

I do, however, have ample plotting material for a piece of fiction that I’m trying like hell to get rolling on.  I put Muse on the back burner for the time being.  I’m not executing it as well as I’d like, and I need to go back and see where I went wrong and where I can improve.  The piece I’m working on has been mentioned on G&L a few times, and still has no title.  The main character is Kadri, the clone.  She’s spiffy.  I love her.

Which brings me to the point of this post:  I’ve already gotten a physician’s take on this situation, but I need the opinions of the readers of science fiction.  Ready?

If a certain group of people are genetically engineered, would they pass their alterations down to their offspring?  If those genetically engineered people only breed with one another (taking incest out of the equation), are they more likely to pass down those alterations than if they produced offspring with a normal human being?

Thoughts?
