So folks, I’m on vacation in Tokyo. You’ve read my Tokyo Shorts series, right? Those only get written while I am physically here in the country so well and true, this place really helps me pump out some shorts. I love and miss this feeling, the intensity of the story beating at my brain and demanding to be written, the mundane daily encounters becoming the source of a new tale.
It’s friggin awesome.
That said, I was in the house all day sick, the weather outside not exactly conducive to any real roaming of the city anyhow. Of course, that time was spent writing, considering a new story that sort of developed on its own. I’m still writing it mind you, but I think it will be rather interesting to deviate from the insane happenings from my prior stories and delve into something a little deeper, a little darker. It’s taking me to a place I’ve never been before and that makes me excited and scared at the same time. It’s not my normal type of story, I have to say. Let’s see what the next day or so brings with this tale and I’ll let you be the judge. It might be a little longer than my normal stories — let’s say, the length of “Olivia’s Story“– but I think it will be worth it.
I look forward to what you have to say!
