..or back to fiction, I guess. I've picked up my story after not writing for about 2 weeks (although i did work on the outline on the ferry from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar. Wish I'd gotten a picture of that..hundreds of travellers exhausted by the heat and the rocking of the boat, wrapped in kangas, and I'm there sharpening my little pencils..) A bit of research has shown me that I'm going down the wrong (inaccurate) track on a major story line,and I'm trying not to be despondent about it. Still....it's fiction for pete's sake. How much do the rest of you feel obliged to stick to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but...? My series is set in a fictional town in CT.
