I’ve been working on my story ‘The Storm Mirror’ for just over two weeks now, and it took longer than I expected the first draft to be. It’s also become a somewhat long and rambly first draft, getting close to eight thousand words now. I’ll probably want to trim parts of it down.
But I love how it’s been coming the past few days! I’ve gotten up to the big dramatic climax, and it just kinda flowed naturally and I was able to get a little foreshadowing in there. I do love it when a story comes together.
All I really need to write now is one short scene to establish the conclusion. And then I’ll need to figure out another short to start writing. I’m toying with a plot bunny about President Eisenhower and a scriptwriter, just as Ike’s taking office – he found out that he inherited a Roswell alien conspiracy from Truman and he’s determined to go public with it. What do you think, does that sound like an interesting premise?
