Irons in the fire update….

Weather: It’s just damn swampy. High: 92º and possibly rainy.  GAH!

Yeah, I’ve been horrifically deficient in regularly posting here. The good news is I have made progress on my writing. The bad news is I hit a drought for about a month.Until this morning, that is. Yes, the story fairy paid me a visit and clocked me upside the head with her magical epiphany anvil.

So, a particularly vivid dream had me waking up, scrambling half-asleep for my moleskine, and scrabbling for a pen so I could quickly take down what I’d just conjured in my addled brain. I haven’t had a plot point resolved in a dream in AGES so I took it as a sign to get cracking on it.

On my commute in, I also came up with what I hope will be the final scene in book #2. I’m literally BUZZING with ideas right now. Unfortunately, I have to serve the first master that is my day job, before I can focus on the deluge of story bits.

In the interim, here’s the current standings on the writing front.
