Wow! I’ve been on a roll, today. I’m finally into the really exciting ‘meat’ of Cloud Dancer. This is one of the parts I’ve been waiting and so far, I like how it’s come out.
It was rather hard to imagine an air-sea battle between a destroyer and an airship. After all, even in the early stages of World War II, it was a given that airships were too slow and made way too big of targets to be of any serious use in an offensive role. They were considered very expensive transport for rich folk.
Since I was determined to not only fight my airship, but to have her win, it took a lot of day-dreaming to work it out in my head, before the first words hit paper. With that in mind, I managed to break thirty seven thousand words before noon!
Oh! And one other thing to report… I’ve started another drawing. This time, I needed to have a firm idea of how and where the Cloud Singer was armed and how she would relate to an enemy destroyer and the Cloud Dancer. With any luck, I should be able to wrap up the new set of plans this evening and I’ll share some of them with y’all.
Keep on writing!
