Last November, I had a bit of a creative itch that needed scratched. I had an idea that had been rolling about in my head for sometime and I finally put text to screen. The result became the opening chapter of my story. I posted it on a few sites, including this one. It was far from perfect but people seemed to like it for the most part. Perhaps more importantly, I liked it. I wanted to tell a story with these characters. Fast forward ten months and Chapter 8 has just been completed. It's slow going, my writing takes a backseat to most other grown-up things and the story is often a victim of my own motivation levels. I do however, have a central plot and know where my characters are going to end up. I think I'm not at the point where turning my back on the work is no longer an option. I'm going to see it through. Anyone who wants to join in on the journey is more than welcome.
