Truth is stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense

Hi, I'm Still Not Dead Yet–

Chris and I are still very much in transition to a new phase of our life and it ain't. easy. All the things that piled up while we were taking care of Old Eternal now have to be dealt with. Most of the piles are literal, and date from the time Old Eternal had to live with us. That was a year and a half of hell for all concerned. But even after she moved out, our living room never quite recovered and we had no time to make a plan of attack.

But the one thing that is getting done: writing. I'm making actual progress on a novel. I mean, actual, real progress. I'm not just working on it. It's progressing. It's a book-length story with sub-plots and angles and surprises and I haven't had this much fun in a long, long time.

I can't say too much about it because, as I've said before, I don't talk about my work. Some writers do, some don't. One is not better than the other, it's just personal technique. But the most wonderful thing happened this week: the novel finally revealed its title. I'm using this as a working title. It may not be the final title–I'm not always good with titles. The working title for Dervish Is Digital was The Person In Question. I didn't like that title and the book knew that so I paid close attention as I was working because I knew a better title would pop up.

Which is the long way of saying the novel I am currently working on is, for the moment, titled: See You When You Get There.

And now I'm off to Neptune again.

All very best wishes with this.

It's good to hear you're having fun! Keep it up!

Long may the creative flood continue!
