Since I, apparently, have ranted until the well has run almost dry and now am approaching some 400,000 words of blather and cant on this blog, I have decided to start the new decade off with something fresh and different. Yes, Virginia, your intrepid writer is attacking fiction.
What I hope to do over the next year is post 20-25 chapters of a fiction book on this site. The postings, depending on the muse, will be one chapter every 10-14 days. And, best of all, it will be free. Not in the “public domain,” mind you with permission to reprint elsewhere, but copyrighted and under the usual protections of your federal and international copyright agreements.
I do this as an attempt to expand my writing skills stimulate dialogue and, perhaps, my readership. The book is about politics, intrigue, religion, terrorism, sinister plots and what might have been or, more, what might actually be. I’ll leave it at that for now.
As the usual disclaimer, all resemblance to any people, living or deceased, is strictly coincidental. All of the characters are simply creations of a warped mind (mine) and have no relationship to current events, except incidentally.
I hope you enjoy the experiment. I look forward to your comments and criticisms with equal anticipation. Just don’t passively read - in the words of the current youth, “holler back” and let me know what you think, good, bad and ugly.
The first installment will follow shortly. Thanks for reading along.
Cheers and HAPPY NEW YEAR,
