It's Been a Month

Playtime's over. 

I started another short story today, this one based upon a short story I wrote a dozen or so years ago. It's almost a rewrite except for the fact that I'm taking a simple ghost story featuring two sisters as the main characters and expanding it to involve dissolving of the immediate family when one of them dies as a child.

The NaNo novel is due to be worked upon again any day now, as soon as I'm done with the handful of short stories I have in the pipe. They've been waiting for me for too long and I really need to get them finished before I can focus on longer works again. Also, to be completely honest, I'm a bit afraid to go back to the novel at this point. It's almost like I've lost the ability, and just after I learned how to boot. It's all in my head, I know, and once I'm at the point where I can focus on just this one project I'll get it done. Eric's been asking about it lately as well, and I'd like to make him happy by giving him a conclusion to look forward to.
