As quick note to respond to recent questions. I have been actually setting up Von's next adventure and the first organized words are working out of piles of notes, character points, plot points and background work that has been underway since September. It is a slow process but an active writing project that I am calling Castaway: Explorer.
Broken Wing is a short story I wrote for Christmas, testing out third person writing. I may pick him up again in the future but that story line isn't an active project.
