Ah ... Labor Day. I have some loose ends to tie up here - and an announcement, of sorts.
First of all, there's this Reader thing I'm trying to adjust to. I had this habit, this routine, that I'd grown accustomed to. I saw everybody's blog, every day. I knew whether people had posted or not, because I actually visited their site from Bookmarks or had seen their last three posts listed on the feeds in my Google home pages. I knew what was going on and felt connected to 'my' blogs.
The Reader works differently - or, at least, I use it differently. Not everybody posts every day, I know, but I have lost track of what everybody is doing and I don't like the feeling that I'm not so 'connected' any longer. And I don't know what to do.
Second of all, there's 'Sarah'. I promised to lay out the book as I see it going forward. Basically, it's all still rather nebulous. I still haven't reached the point where the rest of the book has totally clarified itself. That said, there is a lot of the general direction which is firmly in my mind.
Training now moves to the line shack - where there will be fewer interruptions and training will be more concentrated. There will be some intimacy develop between Jake and Sarah, and she and Jake will have to deal with the rebel faction within The Sons.
She will go to Frisco and set up housekeeping with her Mom and son. She will continue her physical training and will begin learning hand-to-hand combat techniques from another ex-Marine - a friend of Jake's. While in Frisco, she will begin laying out her plan to deal with the members of Vito Giamatti's 'family'. And that's about it, so far.
Now. To the announcement. Tomorrow is Tuesday, and as such, Tuesdays, in the past, have been the seat of "Tuesday Tale" upon occasion. Tomorrow is just such an occasion. But it will be special. The first part of the story, called "The Infinity Cask", written in response to an 'Inferno's Dare', will be posted on The Inferno, an adjunct to The Artist Challenge site. The second half of the story will be posted here, on my site. There will be a link to this site from the story on 'The Inferno'. So remember. The post tomorrow will include a link the the first half of the story which will be on a different site and the second half of the story will be here.
