Last week and this week I’ve been working on my horror short, it’s not coming along as fast as I hoped. I think because I’m trying to do too much in such a short time, and I mean, I’m working on a cover for a short story I want to publish for free, just to get use to the idea of Amazon and ARe. Other than those two I’m putting it up on Smashwords, which will put it up on Barnes and Noble, I know it’s probably irritating, but it will mostly likely be the way go (I just don’t want to have to mess with another company).
Or it could be that what I truly want in the story is only coming up at around 4K which I feel is to short so I’m adding fillers only the filling is giving away too much information and I’m feeling as if I’m making it obvious, which I really don’t want. I want this story to be one of those ‘you can only read once’ types of shorts.
But this is my opinion I actually like the back story I think it will make the end mean more, but as it is I feel like I’m giving to much up, that it will be predictable and I’m finding all my chapters are actually starting out exactly the same.
This isn’t to say that I’m not having a fun time writing it, but it’s becoming frustrating.
Also, before I put up a rough excerpt of the first chapter so you all get a little fun, I’m starting a new thing on Thursday’s called From the Backlist, which is what the titles says, along with some old books, I’m also going to be putting up excerpts too, so that will be fun.
Anyway, if you were a part of the facebook chat I was in a week(s) ago then you’ll have already read this, if not, here’s the first chapter of my horror short, still without a name. hope you enjoy
