The Latest, if not Greatest

Here's what's up:

I'm starting a new story - another adventure for Alex and Evan for those who read my fiction - tentatively titled: The Shallow End of the Abyss.

The tricky part is . . . On March 22nd I'll be having surgery on my right elbow (see previous post), and unable to use my right hand for a few weeks. So typing this story is going to prove challenging - thus I don't expect it to be complete until well into this Summer.

The fun part is . . . During my few weeks at home with nothing better to do than daydream about this new novel and work out all the kinks, I'll be totally psyched about playing with Alex and Evan once again by the time I can use both hands on the keyboard!

In the meantime, I'll be trying my best to bang out a plot outline and hopefully the first chapter with one hand - and that should be interesting, if not comical.

My intention had been to write something new, explore some completely different characters in a completely different setting - I was even playing around with a non-sci-fi piece of fiction in my head, but before any of that could materialize, as I was passing some time one afternoon by reading Knowledge of Power, I suddenly felt an overwhelming need to visit Alex and Evan again.

For those who don't know (or don't care to know - I'll tell you anyway) my fiction can be read at:
www.mymidnightmuse.com And if you've never met Alex and Evan - well, you're missing out :-)

What can I say? I just love those guys!

Luckily for me, I've got a stash of DVD's lined up, a laptop and finally - a wireless cable internet connection - so surfing (one-handed) should be entertaining!
