Writer. Adventurer. Currently working on The Dreamless City, a series of steampunk novels and short stories.
Wow, it’s been a big day today. I certainly didn’t expect so many people to vote on my new short story project. Inspired by Choose Your Own Adventure stories, I’m hoping to make writing a short story a collaborative process.
Thanks to Freshly Pressed, my project has gotten exposure to a lot of amazing people. I really appreciate all the great input and writerly insights people have been sharing the last few days. Keep ’em coming!
I have decided to title our short story Life of a Foundry Moth. We’ll see if the title sticks by the time we are finished with it. If you want to vote on it, let me know and we can make it happen.
Originally (as it the way of many things), I had intended to have the first section of Life of a Foundry Moth up for your perusal and voting this evening (Friday). Due to the exciting events of the day, I have decided to give more people time to vote and will push the release back to this weekend. Also, my live-in editor says he will get around to reading it as soon as he finishes up some important business. Right…
Everyone, meet Reno, the biggest little dog in the South. He enjoys twelve naps per day, rotisserie chicken dinners, and cuddles on the couch with a good book. While Reno prefers epic sagas or insightly podcasts full of social commentary, he occasionally agrees to review my work and point out the more obvious flaws. Sometimes bribes of doggie bacon is involved. (I think he agrees to do it so I will shut up and let him get back to important things like playing with his chewtoys.)
And just to leave everyone is a steampunk-ish mood, here’s some of my fav music from Imagine Dragons. Stop by again soon as lunch tins will be thrown, moths will be chased, and someone might fall off a roof!
The next section of Life of a Foundry Moth can be found here.
