Hiatus (sort of)

I've decided to work on a short for a bit and get away from the novel for a while. The short was inspired by a quote from Winston Churchill and ends by flouting one of the rules from Elmore Leonard. Or maybe I should say it pays homage to Elmore Leonard. I hope that you will see it pass through the group by the end of the month so keep an eye out for it.

While walking the dog I got an idea for another short or it might be a flash. That is why I like the shorter formats. One idea, a few thousand words and I'm done.
