Sleepless in Seattle
I cant sleep tonight. Probably because I slept so much the past two days due to an injury. (Woe is me). The good thing about being laid up is that I can read and write to my hearts content. I recently started reading a book by Stephen King on the art of writing (fascinating book by the way, all aspiring writers should read it). Several things that he talked about made a huge impact on me and so I decided to try writing something different, a short story.
I had started one a few days ago but it wasn’t flowing the way I wanted it to and since I country sleep tonight I decided to give it another go, putting into practice some of the things I learned from Mr. King.
I started off by re-reading what I had already written in order to get the juices flowing. What I ended up with was a 3 page semi-horror story. I’ve decided that it would be the perfect thing to put out for halloween, which is great because that gives me time to get approval from the person that the main character of based on and mayhaps get in an edit or two.
I am pleased with what I’ve come up with so far and am excited to share it with everyone, so I had to give you all a little teaser about it. Hope you don’t mind and stayi tuned for that and other short stories to come!
