Bear with me...

Sorry I've been uncharacteristically missing from blog space for a few days (even from commenting). It's not entirely because of the move (and haven't left for Switzerland yet). The problem is that I have this weirdly obsessive-focus personality, and sometimes get immersed in a project to the point where I can't think of anything else day and night. As I said, I thought of some ideas of how to continue the story threads of the novella I wrote at the end of November. I have the entire thing mapped out scene by scene, and have most of the remaining scenes essentially written in my head. It's currently a little over 33,000 words, and I have three-and-a-half chapters to go. It'll probably be around 40,000 words when its done. I can't write anything else until I get this out so I can clear the mental registers. ;^)

I'll probably be done by Monday, then I'll be back among the living. After that hopefully I'll go another three or four years or so before this happens again. ;^)

I hope the writing goes well and look forward to your return to the atheosphere.

As a writer, I know the feeling of needing to write when the words are flowing.

Have fun with it.

And yes, as hard a thing writing can be sometimes, I always have fun when I'm writing. :)

Well done, I'm looking forward to reading more of your writing. I've gone a bit lacklustre on posting myself, but not because I have a novella in the pipeline...no, nothing as fantastic as that. Good luck finishing it off, chanson...

Thanks everyone!!!

Ima -- true it's fun. The only problem is all of those pesky real-life responsibilities that I end up letting slide...
