So, the last thing I said 2 weeks ago was... "Time will tell."
Time, it seems, is a conundrum of epic proportions. As such, I've been away for a while. Fortunately, stuff got done, for the most part, and I return once more to the madness. A few things left undone, though not for lack of trying.
I've actually spent the last 2 nights working on The Ozian Adventure of Pickleless & Blu, trying to wrap up a pun, and not quite getting it done just yet. It's all in the wrist, they say.
I now immerse myself in Patchwork Girl of Oz (1913) by L. Frank Baum and work towards presenting my protagonist, so to speak.
Research goes on in other areas as well, owing to the absence of yours truly.
