You couldn't make it up...
No fic yet; I’m working simultaneously on ‘Tabula Avatar’ and ‘Came the Thunder’ and I hope to have a chapter of one or the other finished by the end of tonight. I’ve been stalling, because I’m not looking forward to writing a particular death scene, but I’m going to make myself do it.

Last night I was wandering through various story archives, outside my usual fandoms, and I stumbled across a story with a summary that included the following passage:

A bio-virus has been released into the atmosphere and is ravaging the globe. The scientists in the sealed bio-lab are working night and day to find an anecdote.

Bwahaha!

"Okay, Doctor. We have to find this anecdote! Let's review from the beginning: Three scientists were working in the lab one day, when . . ."

Maybe an old classic from Bennett Cerf would pass the times while they pass away LOL. Too funny!

Really looking forward to the updates. Have to admit I need to go back and reread TA and look forward to it but avid for more of Came The Thunder...so very original! Just glad when you get the time to write at all.

What, like a "laughter is the best medicine" kind of thing? In that case, I'd just recommend your Vi-con. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

"The earth is doomed" is all I can think of to say to that! Oh dear...

Wow, that one caught me by surprise!

;) "anecdote" That surely must be a "new-age" virus when only an anecdote is able to deal with it!


Cheers for the cool find!
