Friday Excerpt – A short story in progress

Friday Excerpt – A short story in progress

This month I’ve been working on short stories, looking to get a collection together for a new Dev Dreams edition. This one will have more explicit stories.  As well as being part of the collection, the stories are going to be available individually as well (and a couple of them already are). This is one I’m working on and hope to have finished very soon. It’s a little different from my usual fare. This one has a blind hero.  Here is a brief excerpt: ### Word Count: 370### When I like a guy, I have one trick up my sleeve. The only thing I know to do to get his attention.

My life became frozen at the moment I got the phone call, hearing the words “She didn’t make it” and not being able to understand what they meant. It’s as though I entered a parallel universe the moment I heard those words and, though I’ve continued living, I feel as if I’m always straining to get back to the real world where she still is. Life has been surreal. What sense it used to make is absolutely gone. In the real world, the rules wouldn’t allow for someone like her to die.  She was needed by so many people. I still needed her. I need her now and she’s gone. It’

Another six from the new novel…   “I’ve been living with this for nineteen years.” Susan drew in a deep breath. “So have we,” she said. “So have we.” “It’s not your fault, Mom. It’s not your fault and it’s not mine, it’s just something that is. And I can’t live my life without it.”   To read more six sentences, visit sixsunday.com! ...
