Terry Pratchett talks about inspirations sheeting down through the universe randomly making connections with minds. I tend to believe him because I know I have some really random ideas, some of which make no sense. Those - obviously - aren't meant for me. Sucks, but there it is.
So I've been worrying that I'd have to take TDC down if I sent the novel off to the publisher because of the whole copyright issue, which I totally understand. It would suck because I'd have to stop working on the series and let everything hang where it is, let you all down, etc.
But I had an idea that would totally separate the novel from the fan fiction (a different way the dragons could have become humans), also the novel humans have talents of their own and the bond is different. So I think that means I can leave the fan fiction up and keep working on it. Well, at least until I get the novel published. Then we'll see what the lawyers say.
Also I found a CD (Legend of Twins) that I'd been searching everywhere for and was able to download it. Its a Japan release not out in the states or on iTunes yet, so I'm really, really happy about that one. But the program I downloaded - winzip - to open the CD file gave my computer yet another trojan virus. I mean, really. Seriously? That's FIVE since the start of the year.
So, long story short (too late) I'm back to scanning every bloody file on the computer with three different systems. I have chapters for some folks - Jess and Steph - that I'll get to just as soon as I can and I know its safe to send back to you guys. The last thing I want to do is get someone else's computer sick. *grumble*
I am so taking my tax refund and buying a Mac.
