Derry, Northern Ireland
A book I'm working on is set in this town.

VOT continues to make headway in my head, even as I rework IF. I may be a true schizophrenic person, or else damn good at multi-tasking. I dunno. Maybe it's the compartmentalization of my brain. Am I so much like a Mac now, I can use multiple windows? And how many different ways can I say the same damned thing about me?

Anyway, I have everything figured out for VOT, and now it's working its way into becoming just as hard-assed as some of my other work...which it should be, considering how vicious RIHC6 got.

What's proving interesting is, this attitude is not really translating into IF. Maybe it's because it's being told by Vinnie, a good Catholic boy, and he has this off-handed manner of telling the story. Sort of like Ace in "The Lyons' Den" but without the 'tude. He's turning out to be somewhat fragile, Vinnie is. Things keep popping in to add to that fragility...and it's making me just a bit uncomfortable. But it's necessary, considering how the story turns out. What'll be fun is the reaction of the guy whose life it's based on.

And now off to do some research on my latest choice of murder weapon. This one's gonna be fun, fun, fun.
