Winchester Paper Trail #1: Dean's Motel Survey  
The other day I was working on the PowerPoints for one of my books, the quality tools chapter, and some of the examples were compilations of data gathered by hotels, about the quality of their facilities, and which areas got the most complaints and were most important to the customers. And all of a sudden, I had a little survey constructed in Word, with the amenities at a motel and Dean's comments on them.

At which point, cunien popped into my IM and got a bunch of nonsense dumped into her window with very little explanation. But, being the braintwin that she is, she didn't need an explanation, she just knew. Thus was born the Winchester Paper Trail.

Again, I say, with braintwin powers like this, cunien and I could--dare I say it?--rule the world! (The world in our own little brains, that is.)

This WPT brought to you by the vulva-shaped motel room barrier from "The Usual Suspects." :-D

Gotta say, combining brains with cunien is some of the best fun I've had in ages. So glad you're enjoying it, too!

Thanks so much for checking us out and letting us know you like what you see! Have to say, these little negative-space stories are some of the most fun I've had in ages, ficwise.

And the doodles? That's all cunien. She's amazing. I sent her this crappy Word document and she produced this bit of glory, with DEAN just all over it. Amazing.
