When we last left our hero, he had pretty much written himself into a corner. But wait! What’s this? Looks like an update from Magic Meter!
Ha! Take that, stubborn story!
And that’s a first draft. Since I didn’t put it in the Codex contest, I suppose there’s no need for anonymity: it’s called “The Applause,” although that title might change. I’m still not sure the piece works, but then, I never am.
And what the hell—since I’m feeling all brave and reckless, here’s a snippet:
As Crystal takes the stage, I huddle in the shadows in the corner of the bar, wondering if I am actually capable of killing her—or whoever it was that did this to me. An hour ago, I wasn’t so sure. But with every minute that passes, I become more certain that I can do it, that I will do it. If I have to.
Cheerful, eh? Hey, what did you expect? It’s a Halloween story.
Now I have to get ready for MileHiCon, and figure out my next novel project. I’m kinda interested to learn what it will be, because at the moment, I got nothin’. So that’s exciting.
No updates for Write Club.
