The new short short story, “Locked and Loaded,” seems to be fairly popular! At least with the few who’ve read it, that is. (I actually hate emoticons, but I digress…) At any rate, I did some work on the novel last night. The characters are really starting to come into their own, which is interesting to watch. But now I have to go to work. You know, places to go, people to do, things to meet!
