Well, I put together a little premise and started to post a new story called, "Bullet." I've gotten some interesting comments and will continue adding chapters to that story.
Readers of Claire, don't worry. I have not given up on that storyline. I will post another chapter there real soon. Perhaps by tomorrow it will be up and running here on SOL.
I just needed a little break from writing Claire so my writing would be fresh. I might even alternate releasing chapters of the two stories. We'll see.
