Err...maybe that should be, "Clear the log jam!" I don't think canoes had decks -- just bottoms that hopefully didn't spring any leaks. At any rate, I do believe that I am finally set to actually write something.
Oh sure, there are still a couple of small housekeeping things to do as well, but they won't get in the way of my creative process. I can get serious about "The Backbone Of The World" while sitting on my butt bone in my chair instead of working with techies trying to fix my machines over the phone.
This new project has all sorts of possibilities, not the least of which will confound the readers' minds, if I do it right. A good mind-bender is healthy for the constitution once in awhile. Here goes!
