Having read Carl Hiasson’s latest novel Razor Girl, with a female protagonist, more an anti-hero, I decided to revisit a story idea I started more than a year and a half ago.

Maybe get some fresh thoughts and idea peculating in my writer’s mind. At right is a picture of what that looked like this afternoon. (Click on the picture to enlarge in a new tab.) As usual, it’s always a work in progress, but thankfully I’m back at it again.
