Thinking about what’s next

I have a new thing bouncing around in the back of my head; I have a good double handful of things that need finishing. I need to make a list and match it up with the various sub-calls/due dates, then see what happens.

The New Thing seems to be asking to be a semi-historical: set in the mid-60s and featuring an older guy (40+) running a diner. I’m wondering how long ago something has to have happened to be considered “history”, not to mention whether I’m going to write it as an AU or more realistically (which: depressing, booooo).
