criminal minds elle lucky

tryin' to catch the devil's herd across these endless skies

Off on the first leg of my trip to Brighton in a little bit here, to meet a much-delayed scott_lynch at the airport. Of course, I'm really starting to feel like I'm getting my teeth into Karen Memory, but I'm going to try to keep putting in at least one writing session a day on it, even while traveling.

We'll see how it goes...
