I appear to have a clear run at the moment. Helped I feel by writing. Long may it last though it probably won’t but at least I got most of a story complete in the last week. I didn’t intend to do any writing, my mood being so low for so long, however with a little effort and a trigger I think I should be able to submit the story in the next couple of days.
The trigger was a photograph I saw of a friend from twenty years ago. We no longer stay in touch and I know very little, if anything, about them now.This happens in life you move on, or at least you think you do but memories can resurface at anytime.
It is a simple enough story that on reading I hope the reader focuses on the female character and ignores the male character who spends his time sitting at a bar. Hopefully nothing happens, which is my intention. I like stories in whereby the reader feels as though nothing has happened but the reality is very much different. Discovery of events only occurs later on. When thinking about the story.
I had the introduction and ending for the story already. It was just filling the story that might have caused me a problem but thankfully it didn’t. I would also have liked for the story to be longer. It is only 1000 words but I think I may have covered everything I need to.
