It’s been almost a whole week since my last post! Hard to believe the week is almost over already.
Today, to make up for my absence, I’d like to share the first couple lines of my current WIP (no, not from The Lokana Chronicles), a short story I’m working on for the upcoming Ink Slingers League’s next anthology.
It’s a ghost story, but I don’t have a title for it yet. Heck, I don’t even have an ending for the story yet, or even a middle, which means I’ve got my work cut out for me to get it into shape by the submission deadline. But this idea’s been rattling around in my head all summer, and I’m really starting to get excited about it.
It’s the stuff of urban legends (and Saturday morning cartoons): a long-lost relative has died, leaving you part of her fortune. But there’s a catch.
There’s always a catch.
Very, very, VERY loosely based on something that actually happened to me, I love this story idea. I used to read all the ghost stories I could get my hands on as a kid, but I haven’t really written very many of them. This is going to be a fun challenge.
So, tell me – what do you think of my opening? And what kinds of books did you love as a kid?
Have a great weekend, folks!
