Treasure In Storage

FeatherFlow
Yesterday was spent helping my mother sort through one of the last two storage units they have in Indiana. Amidst stacks and stacks of boxes, we found half a dozen boxes of my things -- mostly books, some files over ten years old, Dev's old toys.

But stuffed into a box of books was a stash of spiral notebooks and a large envelope just the right size for a short manuscript. I pulled it out, not at all that interested when it seemed to be nothing but a partial of a story even now sitting on my computer and waiting for attention. But it looked like there was some printing on the other side so I turned it over and...

I jumped up and did a dance of joy. I'd found a full copy of a novella I'd thought lost forever in a computer crash five years ago. I stayed up far too late last night reading it. It still holds together and I'm still mostly happy with it, though I can see where I made changes I'd like to un-make.

That is my project for the week.

Now the only piece of writing that seems utterly and forever lost is a short story about Marty Dust and his Shelby. Alas, I did so love that story.

But! I have Serpent's Bedouin in hand! I'll start on it this evening.
