I've revised "University" and Belfort and Bastion has printed it (with a cover featuring the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge). Look for it on Amazon.

Flight Plan

A keen-eyed reader has written: "The flight plan via Wagga Wagga in my experience would be atypical. More likely stops between Sydney and Menindee would be Orange, Parkes or Dubbo. To travel via Wagga would be a significant southerly deviation. I am well-acquainted with both situations as my sons did their Air Force basic training at Wagga, and I have visited the far west several times - a good friend is now the mayor of the nearby city of Broken Hill."

He's right. Parkes would make far more sense. My apologies.

Thank you

My heartfelt thanks to those of you who've written over the past week. I truly appreciate all the comments.

I've begun writing again; I expect to post a chapter by Friday, 23 June.

Problems ...

I've rather liked the last 2-3 chapters. However, the scores have fallen. As a result, I've decided to re-think where the story is going. I'm revising all of "University," so I've got time to think while I execute the revision. I'm not looking for advice, but I may have used up Patrick and Rachel.

Anyway, there won't be another chapter for at least a week.

Walkabout is nearing its (logical) conclusion. I have two short stories in the works. One concerning Rachel's dissertation; the other concerning Patrick's future. Next year I will be eighty [!]. I hope to continue writing.
