455 words, short fantasy story. Worked on the Ladriel story this morning, searching for a heartbeat. Not at full-on writing stage yet, just exploring ideas, letting the pen drift. At the moment it’s tentatively titled A Geometry of Vapor. I have the start of a situation. I’ve composed the opening but it may very well change, become a later scene in the story. Right now I’ve got a tiny spark and I’m blowing on it as gently as possible.
