In less than a month I will start my residency in Heidelberg. Hopefully I will be able to get over to Poland. I was talking to a friend last night who is from Krakow. Sounds interesting. The main attraction is Auschwitz. I have been to a few camps but always wanted to experience Auschwitz. Mostly because my father helped liberate the camp in WW2. He said it was devastating. You could smell it a mile away. Since so much of The Z Factor involves persecution and camp life, I think it would be beneficial to my writing. Also puts things in perspective.

Not necessarily completely finished, but well on the way. After all The Z took four years.
