Feeling pretty good about the ‘Sleepers Under the Sand’ story. It’s got sand, sex and scary shit. It’s short. So short. But I’m about to complete it. That means a lot.
I’m determined that this won’t be one of those writing blogs about a writer who never actually writes anything and spends hours moaning about not being able to write. Not that there won’t be a bit of that. Like, 30%, tops.
I think the process of it is quite interesting, but I know full well what I’d rather read. Stories, not excuses. Narrative, not boring old real life.
Anyway, I’m hoping to have it posted in the next day or two. Just want to get it right. But the story is nearly done. Is examining it good or bad? Being too conscious of the process can really kill a story. But if you don’t do that at least a bit, you could be the literary equivalent of a heedless X-Factor contestant. Shudder.
So, stay tuned. ‘Sleeper Under the Sand’ is coming soon…
