As we find inspiration in the strangest of places, this one might be the strangest (or not) yet.
After some late night ruminations while inebriated, a resulting exchange with a friend (the one who is responsible for one of the characters) and this story was born with my novel main character and a guest star. I suppose I should link to this story as well, as it is an introduction piece of sorts to the guest star.
So I started on something that looks like it could be a long one. A longer short story or maybe a novella. Perhaps more, though I don’t want to jinx myself.
It’s been a while since I had an idea for fiction longer than 2500 words, so posting this here for posterity and your enjoyment.
Some more poetry and a bit more uplifting than my last entry.
Wrote something interesting enough to share today, something nice and optimistic!
It almost felt like something that could be expanded into something longer, but I do feel like short stories is a good thing for me to focus on right now.
Today’s short story offering is like my own version of American Gods, in that it is a short tale about old gods coping in a modern world. I focus on just one pantheon though, the one I’m the most familiar with (though for funsies, I won’t give it away here).
