Well, I managed to get another bit of writing done.
I had a dream a few weeks ago … don’t ask how long ago, I haven’t been keeping track. But I woke up with a story vignette in my head – just an isolated scene really, nothing more substantial than that – but I got the distinct impression there was a lot more possible with that story. So I told my wife about it, which is a method of helping me remember the dream if not the fine details. It’s like jotting notes for other people.
So 2400 words later, I have that vignette written. It’s out of my genre, and I don’t know if it’s “good” or not, but I’m happy I finally wrote it. I think all of you inspired me with your encouragement and outpouring of love and support, so I sat my considerable butt in the chair and wrote. It took less time than I thought and I haven’t done extensive editing. It seemed to pass my wife’s muster – she’s the first to alert me to mistakes, typos, bad wording and glaring grammar faux pas – but you’re all welcome to take a peek if the spirit moves you and time permits. No offense taken if you don’t read it though, so don’t do it unless you want to.
It’s right here, if you’d like to see it.
I don’t normally pimp my fiction here. That’s why I put it on its own blog. So this is the last time you’ll have to tolerate such brazen self-promotion anymore.
But I do want to thank you all for being so generous with your outpouring of uplifting comments. It meant a lot to me. And I’ll keep pressing on.
God bless, and have a great weekend.
