Today’s post isn’t going to be anything special. I just thought I would share an update on my latest story, as well as a few thoughts about how it is going.
First off, I have a confession to make. Until today, I had only written eight words.
“Damn it, Chas! Just trust me for once!”
I thought it was a good start, but I was having a lot of trouble going on from there. My main problem was that I kept trying to think of the dream that I thought was a good basis for the story, and I had a lot of trouble realizing that it really wasn’t.
Today, I admitted to myself that the dream was not going to work, and I needed to come up with something else. So I started writing, working in the parts of the dream that would work, but leaving out the parts that didn’t. The end result was over 700 words that I am fairly pleased with.
The story isn’t quite finished, but I think I should be able to wrap it up without too much effort. I’ll fill you in on the end result on Sunday.
And now, bring on the zombies!
