Since signing up for her first-ever NaNoWriMo, self has been cutting pages from her novel-in-progress.

Today, she began a new short story.

Isn’t NaNoWriMo about writing novels?

‘Tis. What can she say? When told to write a novel, she writes short stories. Later, she’ll take a Rohrschach Test to diagnose her disorder.

I was told only that morning, in Luxor: I would be needed to make a delivery of a woman. At the time I received the summons, I was making offerings in the Karnak Temple. Naturally. When I am not at my desk, I am at the Temple, thanking the Gods for my unusual longevity.

I was not told the purpose, but it has always been thus. Our Enigmatic Sphinx knows how to guard its secrets.

I made the retrieval in Guangdong Province. The woman was not conversant in Cantonese or Taishanese and my Mandarin was — well, let’s just say that Professor Ibn Tulun in the Great Mosque did not have the purest Beijing delivery, but he was my teacher and that was the best I could afford.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
