Pirate Twins, 9

Thanks be to God, I’m able to write again.  My wife made bag-in-the-skillet dinner, a minor victory for her, freeing up an hour for me.  Don’t mistake:  I enjoy making dinner for my family – for the same reason I enjoyed being a design engineer or enjoy writing:  the creativity.  But when HAVE to write… well, other writers understand.  Last night I was a basket-case:  alien to myself.

Anyway.  Who’s up for a road trip to Lubeck?

Pirate Twins, 7

Skipped dinner to knock this out.  I’ll grab some cheese before bed.  I introduce three new characters in 1200 words.  I hope that violates MANY guides to Proper Writing.  Not sure where this is going tomorrow night, but I’m pretty sure busty, bossy Libby will be in it!

Pirate Twins, 5; End Act I

Europa’s appearance was originally in Part 4, but the break didn’t fit.  This installment is a little shorter, but my action sequences always are.  You’ll see more of that next week once ‘Cursed Hearts’ is commercially available.

Editing of Proof Copy this weekend.  Shall I come back to Logres & Europa?  Move onto something else?  I get many ‘Likes,’ but comments & quesions are very welcome, too!

Pirate Twins, 2

RealLife(TM) work followed me home, not much, but I was off the clock, which sucked.  I’m trying to make this a 4-5,000 word story complete by the time my CH proof copy gets here (irrational deadlines!) so that’s 1k words each night.  That’s about what’s below the fold.  Makes sense:  my stories are characters and their interactions; this whole entry is Logres on his own, so, honestly, it’s a little boring.  I had to get him halfway across Europe; now that that’s done, I hope he and Europa can show me what comes tomorrow!
