The following was originally posted on my Not A Travel Writer sub-tumblr. As tumblr dies following its ridiculous self-destruction, I have decided to correlate all my previous posts, from several places, here. It makes sense and, crucially, means I own my content. In theory, it also means it cannot be removed by anyone else.

WIP TKTOWERS. First day back at the wordface this calendrical year – I have covered continents, seasons, and thousands of miles since my last update. I have spent time in the winter mountains, passed through desert nations at dawn, warmed my bones on a tropical island, and now I am back in the northern jungle. I have also crafted a poem, the first for many moons, and done more editing on TKBABY. This first draft of TKTOWERS is at the sharp end, where Things happen and Events occur. I think there will be several thousand more words, however. Perhaps even reaching 30k total. Watch this space.
