Lord Tesla and Another Missing Month--UPDATED

This is getting to be a habit. One I'm trying to break.
There has been progress. "Mechanisms" hasn't progressed much. However, this morning saw the completion of an outline of sorts for the completion of a series of Flash Fiction I wrote some time ago, but never completed--not because I hadn't ideas or the inclination, but because the Flash Fiction Challenges from the Fan Creations Forum here ceased to operate and I figured the conclusion should await an appropriate opportunity there.
Also related to the sorely missed Flash Fiction Challenges: inspired by Bango31 returning to post a response to a past prompt in the series, I've written a new flash. I'm juggling a couple of titles right now, seeing which one handles the best...but, it's 300 words, exactly, and...if it comes back favorably marked from Beta Reader, it will be going up today in the appropriate Challenge thread. (Links to follow, if and when needed.)
Then, finally, there is still hope for "Mechanisms." If these other projects get off the ground, and if I can keep hold of the original thread that bound the incident of the story together, it might not be too great a challenge to get the thing done and posted. Timetable--well, it's too early to talk time tables. There's a bit of research to be done if a key location is to be accurate, something on the order of 80 pages' worth. If that hurdle can be cleared, well...
I'll keep you updated. Watch this space.
Thanks for your attention. Questions and comments welcome, as always. This entry ends...now.
UPDATE: The word was good, the flash fiction is now posted in the appropriate thread. It's called "An Exchange of Views," and you can read it by clicking on its title. Thanks for your attention.
