Yikes! My 9-5 has been working me pretty hard of late. Maybe it is a good thing because as I stand and wait for things like the bus, copiers, elevator, lunch, etc I'm always thinking of my stories. I am running scenes and ideas on improving what I've written or new directions to go in.
Still, I hadn't realized it had been this long since I posted a chapter. To wit, Chapter 9 of TTOC.
