Your Tour Starts On Yancy Street

239 words and another story finished. This one is razor thin and will be in need of serious revision with hinting of what motivated the characters at the end. I have a tendency to be overly subtle on things like character motivations on first drafts, which can leave the average reader puzzled.

This often includes myself, if it's been long enough since I read the story. At any rate, been doing this for 44 days, or just over six weeks. I guess that's a habit.

Arthur C. Clarke has died. I can't say it's a surprise, considering his age, but still. Very sad.

Reading: Two things, actually. Triangle: The Fire That Changed America, by David Von Drehle (about the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire in 1911) and The Marvel Comics Guide to New York City, by Peter Sanderson. The first is straight nonfiction; the second, nonfiction about a fictional treatment of a real place. My only complaint: it needs a map, even an overly simplified one. Ah well.
