Here comes MacNicholas!

Every now and then, Eddie's muse visits him, and together, they produce the most amazing creative writing. Often, it's after 9:30pm, when Eddie should be in bed asleep, but instead, he is sitting up in his bed, with his bedside lamp on, writing away on scraps of paper.

A few nights ago, inspired by (and obsessing over) a Scottish Santa statue he saw in a mail-order catalog, he penned the following tale, still a work in progress.

Besides the obvious care put into the penmanship and the quality of the writing (never mind his persistently poor spelling), what impresses me most is the fact that he used an atlas to research the place names in the story.

It's truly wonderful!
