I was reading the end of "The Steward, the Kriegsherr, his Femme Fatale & her Brother" and the start of "Dirk Dangerous and the Giant Balls of Doom" and I felt there needed to be a bridge between them. It means I won’t be introducing Dirk to the world for at least one more story which is a shame as I like writing DD. On the flip side I get to bring in another group of characters who’ve been hanging around in the back of my imagingation, Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle. A group of young women with many talents but when they meet knitting isn’t on the agenda. I’ve knocked out the first eight hundred words about them tonight so there are definitly legs on this one.
