Kicking into gear.

First attempt at sequel writing: 1157 words.

Leave it until our houseguests left following Memorial Day.  Meanwhile, I get a new thought and transfer first attempt to the back burner.

Once I began the second attempt, I found myself caught in a writing vortex that lets up 4574 words later.  Will be going with the second idea, apparently.

The sequel is off and running, folks! Huzzah!
