About to get at it this morning, first sun in days – and my desk is calling.
Latest comment at Lit concerns TimeShadow, to wit: take your time. So, that story is out there, hanging in the breeze, and while I’ve been thinking about it most of my own limited brain capacity seems taken up by this Journey from Driftwood, which I hate to say has been consumptive of all my time for the past few weeks. The first installment of Ceremony of Innocence wakes me up in the middle of the night…a thought here, another there, go down and fire up the Mac and before I know it I’ve been down there working for hours. This poor story has been written and rewritten three times now.
Still, TimeShadow. It’s scope has been expanded somewhat, which will of course mean revisions to what’s already out there. So…as I think I mentioned in an earlier post, when that story finally comes to a boil it will have been consolidated from the current slow, multi-chapter postings to one big heaping plateful of SciFi spaghetti.
And I guess that’s the point of this little early morning ramble. I’ve got this whole Journey thing going, and TimeShadow, and then there’s the whole over-arching Mr Christian project guiding the way, all on the stovetop bubbling away. AND I want to consolidate and garnish Passegiatta, fold it into the Driftwood project. AND the ancient Starlight Sonata, as I see it now, belongs in the mix too.
AND I see on my calendar this morning…an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow, and that stuff weighs on my mind, too. That old shark, still out there, circling. Writing keeps those thoughts from intruding, but that’s a concern as I write.
So enough of that. Time to head back to Seattle and Vancouver and the dusty corridors of the Memory Warehouse, because Ted and Carol’s story, and Hope’s destiny, are waiting to take flight.
Ceremony of Innocence Chapter 1 is complete and I’ll post it today, so hopefully you’ll see it on Lit within a week or so.
Comments, questions or gripes? I think there’s a comments section here that might work, or over at Lit. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and coming along.
