New story is posted at

I’ve posted the new story, Grandpa’s Hat, at Some of the people who read it in my livejournal complained that they couldn’t make any comment, so now they can leave a review if they so desire.
As for the writer’s block, I’ve got to do some research on Thailand (C. suggested that as a venue) and on building implosions. I think I have the rescue I need. Once I have the research in hand, I can go back and  pick up chapter 15 again. And I do need to get going with The White Winds as well. Things are percolating there again, and I am very grateful.
I also have a scene in my head for one of my original fics. I’ll have to write it down before it gets away.
More later as the muse moves.
