In the story I’m writing, Our Heroes have been caught in a huge thunderstorm, that’s causing some flooding, and other problems. Oddly enough, there’s no wind. Several of the characters have remarked upon it, as well as noting that there’d only been “isolated showers” forecast for that day.
Finally it occurred to me, maybe this is no ordinary storm! doo doo doo doot. doo doo doo doot. Which probably means that the McGuffin that I merely meant as a plot device to get Our Heroes together with the Wise Old Sage, and get his mind thinking in the correct era, may actually be Something More.
I need to get back to writing.
