Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Majorca Flats

I've written over 35,000 words of my soap opera, Majorca Flats.  That's between one third and a quarter of a novel.  I'm astonished.   I started it as an exercise to get me writing again and it's certainly succeeded.  Right now I'm working on issue 8 of Wilde Oats, but I'll be able to start posting episodes again in a couple of days.

Meanwhile, some hints of what's to come in the next 35,000 words:

  • A revelation about Jason. The truth at last!
  • Cody's back at his old tricks (tricks being the operative word)
  • Somebody really evil comes into the story.
  • Jason gets into trouble with the immigration authorities. Will he be deported?
  • Eleanor Cumberledge needs help.

I don't know from day to day where each episode is going.  The characters tell me in no unceratin terms what's going to happen.  I'm a mere scribe.  That's what I enjoy about it.
