a long time

It wouldn’t be accurate to say I’ve begun my next book. Like “It’s Like This”, the next one – either a single story or two, both mysteries – has been hanging out in the corners of my mind a long time. I’ve come home to visit these past few days. Backpacking the stretched-out wonder and practicality of the “Now what happens?” – a finishing issue. A couple of long, novella-length stories I’ve romanced for years.

Ann’s taking me away this weekend – all expenses paid – and there’s something of a plan to sit quietly amidst the vastness and see if one or both of those mysterious tales wish to travel just a bit farther down the road. The one with the sign that says, “Ain’t nobody here but us cats.”
