My first try at writing a fiction story has been completed. I really did enjoy the experience and found that at times the story seemed to write itself. I was particularly blessed with many fabulous emails from readers that sent encouragement.

I was very pleased with the emails that compared my modest efforts with some of the SF greats. While I appreciated them, I know that my efforts paled in comparison. It was very heartwarming to get them nonetheless and indeed, those stories were the type of SF stories I cut my teeth on as an adolescent.

I'm going to take a bit of a break before I start/post a new story for a couple of reasons. First, writing is time consuming and at the same time, I felt compelled to write. My chapters weren't overly long, but I was churning them out every couple of days. It is surprising the amount of time it takes.

Thanks to Jack for such a good job at proofreading and making this story better.

Thanks so much to all of you for your support.
