Brain dump A funny thing happened to me after I finished writing Hellenic Immortal: my brain stopped working. Oh, it’s not like it’s actually fully non-functional, but it’s tired.  Really, very deeply tired.  In fairness, it’s been running non-stop between the promoting of Immortal, the rewrites, and some screenwriting stuff I can’t talk too much…
