Progress! I have a story. It’s really, really short but it’s complete; a rounded sort of story that doesn’t occur to me that often.
“The Stone Disciple” came out of a workshop weekend (which I will write more about in due course when I have time) and represents the fruits of a rare and precious moment when an idea emerges as fast as it can be written, revealing itself at the end to be a story complete.
What a lovely sensation that is – and one I hope to have more of!
Of course, I can see the problems with punctuation now but for the first time I’m not obsessing over those details. This is the first really new story that I’ve had in such a long time that I feel like celebrating. I’m grateful that Steve, the editor at 365tomorrows enjoyed it too, enough to pop it onto his website the same day he received my submission.
