Writing FIREBRAND Year One

Another instalment from the journal I kept when I began writing FIREBRAND back 1992. This was a quiet day, it would seem!

K I Sawyer AFB, MI
(Marquette, MI)
January 3, 1992

Didn’t write a thing today. Cleaned greenware. Went to the ceramic shop (on base). Getting another tea towel framed. Somerset. Rather appropriate.

End of journal entry.

I have a decent collection of framed tea towels from when we were stationed at RAF Greenham Common in England—where the story line for FIREBRAND finally began to fall into place. Nice memories. The Somerset one hangs in our dining room now. Avebury’s is in the kitchen. Calne’s and Wiltshire’s are in the family room. Ah, Calne. What a quaint little town, with one of the best pub’s; the Wheatsheaf. Wonderful people who are still great friends 20 years later.
