I can never quite decide if taking time out from the two novels on which I’m working is a good thing–“Everyone needs a break now and then”–or a method of procrastination–“Why the hell aren’t you working on one of your books; how many stories can you keep in your tiny brain at the same time?”
Regardless, I find that I have been taking time out from my two novels–yes, two–to occasionally crank out a short story. The latest entry came to me, literally, in a dream. I dreamed the whole story, start to finish, including the title. I woke up upon its completion, mostly because it creeped me out some, rolled over, jotted down some notes in my iPhone, went back to sleep, and then commenced work on it the next day. It took 3 “writing units” to complete and took about a week, but on the whole it’s basically the same story as the one I dreamed.
It’ll be up to you folks to tell me if it’s any good. In any event, it’s called The Codex and is available on WattPad. Share and enjoy. And if you do read it, please tell me what you think because I’m genuinely curious to find out if it’s good, or just a piece of crap. I mean, when you dream something, it’s always hard to tell, don’t you think?
