I have been wandering back to my roots recently, delving into the world of pure fiction, and getting my keyboard rattling. Two things in particular have been keeping me busy.
I have finally completed a 35,000 word story that I started over two years ago, about a couple who are dropped into a Fantasy World. That’s always been a favourite theme of mine, but till now I had never found a way to make a relevant statement with it. This time I think I have, and it feels good to have a first draft of a decent length story down.
The second thing I am working on has grown out of that first: another story that is a parable, or a metaphor of people in our world, told in a Fantasy setting. That one is looking like coming in at around 10,000 words, but I think it will need to be culled to around half that on revision.
