|06:47 am - Paragraph-at-a-Time story: "The Branch"|
I'm feeling rather experimental at the moment -- no, strike that. I myself am not an experiment. As far as I know.
Let's start again. I'd like to try an experiment: writing a short story a paragraph or two at a time. (Do you see my hedging there? The "or two"?) I'll post a paragraph or so every morning until the story's done.
Jessa Marton was chopping up jalapenos and thinking about Tim Rodriguez, the Man Who'd Got Away, when the phone rang.
When she answered it, the voice on the other end was warm, deep, a sorcerer's voice. Tim. "Hey, Jessa," he said without preamble, just as if it hadn't been a year since they'd spoken. "We got a problem. The Branch is about to fall."
May your Tuesday be experimental in all the best ways!
Thanks, L! The upper-case always adds mystery, right? :-)
Thanks twice, and good thoughts for your day!
I am intrigued, L!
