It's been a few days since I have put virtual pen to paper here, but that doesn't mean that I have been idle. A friend of mine wanted a short fiction piece for an illustration that he did, and I took up the challenge.
Now, a bitter and sad fact of my life is that for a decade and a half I have suffered from writer's block. Not where I couldn't write at all, but rather I could never complete any story. You have perhaps seen the fragments I have posted here. That is the usual fate of my writings. A few pages and then i get stuck.
However, this time was different,. I got a clear plot idea and ending for the piece and I wrote it. Beginning, middle, and end. This is a huge breakthrough for me.
I'm not sure what this portends for the future, but I am hopeful that I can continue to write and create. I have no illusions that I am a great writer, or I am the next Stephen king, but if I could perhaps reach the level where someone actually pays me to write, and I do it as an enjoyable side hobby I would be happy with that. We shall see,
