I started ASurvivalStory.com a yearscouple ago just to try something different. If you are not aware – A Survival Story reads like a daily journal written by “Jed” and documents the struggles of a small neighborhood after the collapse of the United States. With electricity out, law enforcement quickly disbanding, stores closed and food in short supply – Jed works to organize his neighborhood to tackle the challenges that lay before them. Overall I am pretty happy with how Part 1 turned out. I am certainly not a trained writer so no doubt there are a fair share of grammatical errors. Try to have some patience…..please?
What I was really surprised at is how much I enjoyed writing fiction. Developing the characters, creating relationships, manipulating the plots, and thinking about…..“What would I do in that situation?” It was fun! Let me tell you something else – if you read it you will see that Jed and his community make mistakes! Yup, they are not perfect. They are just like the rest of us.
I started Part 2 over at ASurvivalStory.com but “life happens” and I was never able to finish it. Reading back through and editing Part I in an effort to get it on the Kindle has certainly stoked the fire for writing fiction. I am considering starting Part 2 again – or possibly just a different project.
Take care all –
