Appreciate the comments about that old writing and working struggle.
Devon — no fear of that.
Wynn — thank you; so many endeavors, it seems, and so little time!
Adrian — yes, I always keep Anthony Trollope in mind. He rose early, wrote his pages, and went to work at the post office every day.
Been thinking about A Geometry of Vapor, thinking that I’d try it as a mystery in a futuristic, alternate earth setting. Don’t know who the victim will be or who the murderer, but the seed is betrayal; a betrayal that has dire consequences and will lead to murder. Associatives: loss of confidence which leads to loss of trust which leads to the betrayal, and another associative that might be useful: a broken promise. Me likee; me will see.
