"A Chance to Breathe"

A few days ago I mentioned that I might start working on a new Living Stump story. I started that (and still hope to get back to it by the end of the month at the latest), but then I got caught up in a completely different story. If I think it's ready to go out in time for the deadline, this will probably go to Shimmer for their clockwork fables special issue. It certainly fits that, with something of a new weird slant, at least at this stage. Who knew that giant, sentient beetles suffered from consumption just like humans did back in the industrial revolution? I should be able to wrap the first draft up this afternoon, and then we'll have to see where it goes from there.

"Sentient beetles suffered from consumption just like humans did back in the industrial revolution."

That's enough to make you stop and go hmmm. Wonder what that story would be about.

Good, I'm glad =) Now I hope the story lives up to that.
