Sorting Marlowe

Yesterday i collected my Kyd and Marlowe stories, and put them in order. I am going to try to see if they need filling in, or (much more likely,) removal of parts, to make a better story. I think going back through at this point will help me with going ahead. I am still going ahead, the going back may be invisible to anyone outside my brain.

I still feel I am in the 'getting to know them' stage of things. The guys are revealing themselves slowly-- as are the other people in their lives. Writing them is fun. It is fun to allow myself to invent their world.

I added up my word counts, I have about 20,000 for Marlowe stuff. More than I thought.

That is actually a little scary, because it is so dwarfed by the Hornblower writings.

Thank you all for slogging through with me. I am so grateful for everyone who has taken the time to read, even if they never did comment. And, of course, the comments I have gotten have been so kind, so thoughtful,

Nobody has said  'Who are you, and what do you think you are doing, you imposter! Go away!'

Everybody has said 'Come over here, it is fun isn't it? We know what you mean.  Look over there-- isn't that cool?.'

How good you all are! I want to take you all home and feed you cheesecake! You all mean more to me than I can say.

So, onward. I am going to try and do some more of what I have been doing. And new things too. It is fun, isn't it?   Look over there!
