First – a short story published today in Who Writes Short Shorts https://whowritesshortshorts.com/category/fiction/
So that was rather nice – and a few nice comments too.
Then – a lot of thought and exploration on my next story. And I do have to give this one a good deal of attention. I recently wrote a story titled Magic on the Edge of the World and realized pretty soon afterwards that it demanded a sequel – and maybe more than one. It’s a fairly long short (oxymoron anyone?) and it has a good ending – but I know that anyone who reads it will want to know what happens next.
And this isn’t the only one like this. Mister Fabulator’s Bookstore is facing the same issue – what happens next.
So – I am going to address the magic story first. Tomorrow is a big snowshoe day so I think I’ll dig into a sequel the day after.
And then a dog walk in Slocan – we went farther this time – almost to the end of the trail. The snow is disappearing rapidly. We came a cross a flock of wild turkeys looking healthy and well fed.
And the rest of the day is all about preparation for tomorrow.
