Tangent Online reviews All-Star Zeppelin Adventure Stories. (thanks to Toby for the link) I didn't "go horribly wrong." That's nice to know. (My favorite review ever is still "not entirely without merit," which was one of the Sherlockian groups' response to "Tiger! Tiger!")

I wonder if this is what a mature novel feels like, or if I've simply lost the ability to plot and generate tension?

My dad bought a welder.

He wants to build a wind-driven music box out of old bicycles.

In case there was somebody who suspected I didn't come by it honestly.
