Someone, many years ago, told me that once you turned 65 the weeks just flew, you know, like when a day was a long time, days will seem like hours, weeks like days, and years, well, it’s like watching the time clock on a time machine.
That last week went really fast.
I finally knuckled down and got some work done on the multitude of writing projects I’ve got going on.
I’ve recently been working on a story I’ve been calling ‘The helicopter story that’s been keeping me awake’, that got to the fifteenth episode, the end of what I now call part one, and as of the sixteenth episode is now under the ubiquitous title of ‘What happens after an action-packed start’.
Now written through to episode thirty, it starts on the third part and the climax of the story, and I may call it ‘What happens when you’re sent on a fool’s errand’.
The story will have three parts and will become a novella. The title, “Under the Cover of Darkness”, and Part 1 is called “Crash Landing”. More news on the other parts soon.

Another that I have been calling ‘I Always Wanted to go on a Treasure Hunt” was a whimsical idea that cropped up because I was stuck on an aeroplane, where the initial idea was formed, then home where it was a hot afternoon, and it reminded me of a desert island, just where you’d expect to find treasure.
Of course, the treasure isn’t on an island, it’s somewhere on the Florida coast, and there’s an intrepid adventurer who had the ‘real’ map, sought after by a variety of bad people.
It’s now rounded out into about thirty episodes, and there are more on the way.

Last week I even began drawing up the treasure map, after all, you can’t have a treasure hunt without a map, can you?
Then there’s Betrayed, we maybe it will be called that. It’s the third time I’ve put the title up for grabs, and it might not happen again. It got to episode 16 when I found I had written myself into the proverbial corner, so a rewrite of the next three episodes put it back on track.
It’s in WW2, and the Germans are about to discover all is not going their way.

There is a fourth story, under the title “Was it just another surveillance job’ that has surprisingly found a new life, and I’m having fun trying to work out the lies from the truth, except in the spy business, no one ever really knows which is which,, do they?

Stay tuned for another progress report.
