My Christmas present to myself this year is two gallons of special paint
to turn one of my living room walls into a plotting and notes erasable
whiteboard for my creative writing.

One of my guilty pleasures of escapist fiction has always been the end
of the world novel (Alas, Babylon; The Mote in God's Eye; The Stand) --
the more realistic, the better. My tech writing experience is letting
me get deeply enough into the details of my own effort in this genre to
have literally made the hair on the back of my sister's neck stand up.
Heh, heh, heh! A good start! She doesn't scare easily!

I'm also working on a little thriller. Feer mah powrz!

I can't think of any tech writer I've ever known who didn't admit to
having a fiction book idea in the back of their brain somewhere. I
think I'll do an informal poll at tomorrow night's STC gathering!
