Back to writing
I finished the third draft of my latest short story and hope to get it to Writers of the Future next week. I was planning on taking a break from writing, but something possessed me to start another short story. This one is back into my normal tongue-in-cheek style, since my last story was so depressing. This is revisiting a character I created several years ago, but the story got rejected. I really liked the character, though, so, now that my writing skills are hopefully better, I thought I'd try him again. He's a smart-donkey, wise-cracking youth who single-handedly saves his incompetently run kingdom. I'm trying this one in the first person, which is not my normal style, but it helps highlight the character's voice.
