Vacation (all I ever wanted)

Just coming back from the better part of two weeks' vacation. More as I reacclimate myself to the grind...

...breaking a vow I made to myself, I decided not to work on "Confessions" on the train ride in this morning but revisit "High Tide," the short story I had lost half of at the end of the last year, as spending a fortnight in the role of beach bum had given me some fresh inspiration for the re-write. There's some major surgery involved that will ultimately expand the story into something more like a novella, but I think the extra effort will give the existing characters room to grow--something that was palpably lacking as I reread the first half again this morning. We'll see how it all turns out.
