Having got through my quota of words for the NANOWRIMO project, I turned my mind to another story I’m writing.
It started out as a bit of a lark, just to see if I could write a story that fitted around with an old castle we’d visited in Tuscany, after hearing stories of the pockmarks on the walls attributed to gunfire.
It conjured up a group of men occupying it with a single mission, to capture and return a high ranking German boffin who wanted to defect to the allies.
The twist is, of course, that the occupiers are British, sent there to facilitate the repatriation to England, only the men are really German double agents.
A bit far fetched, but from some of the stories I’ve read and shows I’ve seen, it’s not quite beyond the realms of possibility.
And, after all, it is fiction.
So, parts of this story have been running around in my head, waiting for a time to put it on paper. Now is that time.
So, three more episodes have just been completed, and I’m thinking of watching Von Ryans Express again just to keep the mood going.
Oh, and the NANOWRIMO project, it’s proceeding apace.
