Rounding out Akaiame’s ensemble. Although, apparently she’s going shopping tomorrow. Now that will be a challenge to write: some of my clothes are thirty years old…
I really like this story. It’s wonderfully… comfortable. That will change, of course, in time. Akaiame is on the second-tallest building for a reason…
Parts 0-2 are already at 2500 words. Let’s go ahead and call this one a light novel or novella. Anyone wanna do the b&w illustrations for me?
Just finished editing what I wrote last night; very glad I waited as it was a mess. Just as I did with my Pine Bluff short, I’m going to extend this story a little. I won’t insult anyone this time by claiming that it’ll likely be “only 1200-1500 words!” I’ve learned my lesson. It will be what it will be.
Although I’m calling this Part One, the real start is here; I’ll edit that post and call it ‘Part 0.’
I’m honestly curious as to where this one will go!
I’ve typed out a little short about who’s in the cocoon in Abandoned Factory and that person’s appearance into their world, but it sucks and needs editing. And, late on a Friday night, that’s not happening.
I give myself a C- for today’s assignment. Expect more in the AM.
“Can’t you just say, ‘the end?’ one of the pharmacists I work with asked. The man’s idea of ‘writing’ is a doctor’s illegible scribbles onto a pad, so I value his opinion not at all. Still, I did need to wrap this up and try to keep at my daily installments of creative writing.
I’d only the vision of Fausta walking the evil woman out the door. Until I started typing that out just after dinner, only then did the rest of the scene unfold into my mind. I hope everyone enjoyed this micro-story!
I wonder where we’re off too, tomorrow!
I realized that in serializing this story, I have begun to leave each post on a cliff-hanger. Very bad form: if that becomes a habit, my novels will suffer to the point of death.
So, this time, in our flashback, we flashback further, then flash-forward. Hey: it’s Valentine’s Day: I should be flashing somebody!
Aside: this ‘little’ sub writing exercise is already north of 2300 words… what did I say about 1500…? I so need to get these folks out of town! I wonder if the cocoon in Abandoned Factory has hatched…
