Of all the ironies, my muse came a-calling too. 1000 more words on the little fantasy I started and it's done. Zero draft completed. It's a short piece, a sort of mystic/spiritual examination of war as a theme. It was inspired by one of the songs on the CD britzkrieg gave me for my birthday: "The Queen and the Soldier" by Suzanne Vega. The lyrics stuck me with me, haunting me with images until I sat down and hammered out a story to frame them. So, hurray, my first completed story of 2004. Having Matthew first reader it, and then up to Critters it goes. But also, ouch.
Wish I could learn how to type with my toes.
