Stepping off for a short story

Plague Child is taking a back seat for a short story based on a section of The Deluge. It's fun to go back and re-live some dramatic moments, and now I've got to 'book end' it in the future. These things don't let go, you know.

I've been watching scientific/space programmes and really love the idea that Betelguese (some pronounce it beetlejuice) could go supernova any day. It'd be as bright as a sun - how fantastic! Expands my mind!

Stopping at a good bit

I'm so excited! I KNOW what happens next in the thread I'm writing, but I'm exercising delayed gratification because I'm racing for the curtain and I want to do the whole thing in one sitting.

Getting all the strands to interweave without glaring anomalies is proving tough. But when it does happen it feels right. The reader will never know how disparate it was, but that's my job. It's supposed to flow.

My mojo!

My mojo's back!!! It took a bit of a holiday and I found it hard to get in back and I'm still working on the triggers to snap it back quicker than it wants to at the mo. But now it's back and it's great!
