Good news!

After thumbing through Herodotus for the millionth time last week, I came across a passage I hadn't paid much attention to. It involves part of the Spartan marching (sneaking?) off in the middle of the night in order to help their allies up north before the battle of Plataea. This passage suddenly sparked an idea for my story, and my writer's block has been removed! I am now on the last stretch of the novel, and hope to finish it by mid-March at the latest. It's all hand-written, which means I'll have to type it up at some point, as well as add/subtract chapters and do lots of editing. But just writing out "The End" will be an awesome milestone!
