KingMidget's Ramblings

Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

What’s This?

I while back, I wrote a short story called The Jump.  It got some good reaction and I enjoyed writing it.  So, I let it stew and thought about expanding the story.  It certainly had the potential to be something much larger.  The question was whether I had it in me to actually write the thing.  Writing fiction has been a massive struggle for me over the last year or two or three.

I noodled with an idea for chapter two of The Jump and started writing it.  And then I thought of a different chapter two and started noodling on that idea.  And this is what I spend a lot of time doing these days.  Noodling rather than actually writing.  Cause I’m just scared I can’t write anymore.

A couple of weeks ago, I started writing the new chapter two of The Jump.  I wrote a few hundred words and then a little bit here and a little bit there.  And yesterday in the quiet hours of a Sunday afternoon, I burst through and completed chapter two.  Something clicked in the writing of it and I hope that click holds on and I can actually make some progress on turning The Jump into something more real.  Longer and further into the story and that I can carry it through before bogging down.

So, here you go.

The Jump.

The President’s Men.  (Chapter Two of The Jump)

Keep your fingers crossed, say some prayers, light a candle or two … for me, that I can find it again.

    Thank you for sharing these. Several times I have corrected WP to get your fiction page into my email and I don’t know why it insists on excluding it, as many times as I have re-added it.
