Ella and the Admiral
But just a few days ago I dreamed about this admiral and a woman. Neither of them had names, but they had some sort of history - she had been in Fleet - and they met again in very different circumstances. A restaurant, fireworks... A glimpse of a story. So I've abandoned my current WIP for now (I'll go back to it) and did some work on this new story while the creative juices were flowing.
I had to think up a name for the file on the computer. I already had the imaginatively named WIP (I still haven't come up with a title) so I figured "Ella and the Admiral" would do. And then I wondered if I could use that as a permanent title. Would you read something with that title? Given an appropriate SFR cover?
Apart from that, I suppose I must be one of the last Star Wars fans to see the trailer for Rogue One. I've made it clear in earlier posts that The Force Awakens didn't exactly have me turning enraptured cartwheels. But boyoboyoboy Rogue One looks great. I can't wait. If you're even later than me to catch up, here's the trailer. Or even better, read through this tantalizing tale. Yum. Bring on the 3 minute trailer 2.
Oh - the new story will be fairly short, I expect (although you never can tell) and it will be another Dryden Universe. Wish me luck!
