Going Off-line

Richard ArmitageCarrie Severide and Robert Bierce’s story is at a cross-roads.  Or a divided highway.  Or maybe just a squeezy hedgehog trail in the bramble.  It’s time for me to follow all the false starts to see where these two want to go.  Time to write the rest of this shitty first draft off-line.

I thought this might happen, and I apologize for teasing some of you with the first three chapters then leaving you stranded.  My intention is to finish this draft quickly, in the most shitty manner possible, then tackle the second draft directly.  Like Michelangelo said when asked how he carved David, “It’s easy.  You just chip away the stone that doesn’t look like David.”

Not that I’m Michelangelo.  

Not that this story is a masterpiece.  

But the principle is the same.  I’ve got some chiseling to do.

And not that I want to tease anyone else who might be wandering by, but there are three chapters here to read.  Sorry.  I can’t help myself.

Do not fall down the rabbit hole by reading the first chapter of Technical Consultant—An Unexpected Journey. 

Don’t.  Really.

    Happy chiseling.

    Sorry to have been absent since Christmas. Sara and I had guests from the US and then did some traveling around our new country–sometimes without internet. Trying now to get back into the swing of things.

    Hugs from Ecuador,
