So I’m going to have to put my cur­rent project on the back burn­er for the time being. I need to do a lot more research, it looks like, before I set a sto­ry aboard a 17th-cen­tu­ry ketch. What with being a child of the land­locked prairie, grow­ing up in the late 20th-ear­ly 21st cen­turies, who’d’a thunk it?

But that’s okay. It’ll give me a chance to return to a cou­ple of sci­ence fic­tion projects, Earth Fleet and Salyx (this last being my Nano project for 2005).

Off to write!
