New short story : The Cavern Below
I wrote this new story yesterday in a hurried frenzy. The idea caught me and I just couldn’t stop until it was done. I knew by the initial tone that not everyone would read it to the end but I don’t mind that. Sometimes you write for yourself and I did just that. I wanted to get it out. And I had such a blast doing it, knowing how it all ends.
In other news, I have posted up the first chapter of Dark Moon on this website. Dark Moon is my baby. It was the first book I wrote when I was 13 to 14 years old. It’s very very amateur work. Any writer will see that right off the bat. But I like to think of it as a first glimpse of some potential. Anyway, I’ll continue posting more and more chapters twice a week. Shouldn’t take too long to get through the entire book, I think. There’s only 25 chapters, each rather long, all things considering.
Also updates on Sin, I’ve written chapter 9 today. I may continue with chapter 10 later tonight. I like to stay ahead of my posts because it gives me some leeway and it allows me to backtrack a little and rewrite continuity errors as I feel the need. Those worried that I don’t know where the story is going can rest assured that I do. I know how it ends. ALSO IMPORTANT : I won’t be around tomorrow morning, afternoon and night, so I’ll be posting chapter 4 at midnight tonight, GMT/UTC+08:00 timezone.
Anything else? Umm. I still have several other short story ideas bubbling in the back of my mind but those will be on the back burner for a while until I feel ready to do something real with them, which may be every week or so. We’ll see.
But all in all, the writing process seems to be going great. The blog is slowly — slowly! — coming to life. But all good things to those who wait … and write.
