Currently battling the villains of writers block! It has been a dodgy war with many casualties and though the battle field is covered in a thick haze of smoke an end is soon to come. Though our heroine was at first greatly outnumbered, a sudden turn of the wind or a shift in fate has changed the course of the battle and she seems to be gaining ground.

A local habitation and a name.
– William Shakespeare (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream)
