Well, it’s been a month since my last post. And for anyone that has been reading the thing, I humbly apologize. See, I could say that I’ve been gone on vacation and that my USB has been lost, so that’s why there haven’t been any more updates. But that’s not the truth. No, the truth is that I got a little bored with the story. It’s the same old thing that happens with all of my writing. Just like my NaNoWriMo novel last year, I started off strong, and then by 25000 words or so had grown weary of my story. It happens all the time. That’s why I think short-fiction, like say flashfic, short stories, or novellas, is more my thing. At least for now.
But I’ve not given up on Oscambria. No, I’ve just taken an extended break from it. It’s still a story I want to finish, and I’ve put a lot of work into it, so I suppose I will. And when I do, it’ll be back up here on my blog.
In all that, a new idea presented itself to my wandering mind. I started writing a short story a little while back, and I’m happy to report that I’m almost finished with the first draft of it. I am pleased to say that I am very proud of it and that I will be rolling out the thing as a new Writing Wednesdays feature over the next few weeks. In addition to the story, I’m also going to be adding up an audio version (like I did with “The Testimony of Goodwin, P.A.”) with each
The current working title for the piece is “The Bombing of Morrta,” but that could easily change. In a nutshell, it’s about a man who has made a cataclysmic decision and learns to live with the consequences of it. Like I said, I’m very happy with the results and quite eager to share it with the few of you who read my fiction.
I hope you all read it and offer some constructive feedback. Tell me if something doesn’t make sense or if something is too confusing. Am I too wordy? Let me know. The whole thing should be around 10,000 words, so it shouldn’t take too long to finish.
Have a happy Memorial Day weekend, folks. Be safe.
