Hello, and welcome to our little corner of the interwebs!
We’ve been writing for a long time, and daydreaming ourselves into our stories for even longer. But now, we’re finally taking the steps to polish up some of those stories and share them with the world. (Scary, after keeping all the private thoughts and feelings and needs and desires poured into them… well… private, for all of our life.)
It’s been taking us longer than expected, but then, doesn’t everything?
Our first ‘published’ goal is a set of five short stories, representative of the sorts of characters and worlds in our normal-length stories. The first drafts have all been written, more than half have been revised, and after a rather crazy past week*, we’re about ready to get back to finishing the rest.
*We got – rather abruptly – sent across the United States and back for work. We’ll be the odd ones out here and say we don’t like traveling. Delayed planes, swarms of people, strange beds, and no computer… no thanks!
Anyway, hopefully before too long that first little book will be taking up the top space on the home page, and we’ll be starting in on a longer revision of one of our existing first drafts.
In the meantime, we’ll have at least one short story showing up in here pretty soon.
We’d love to have you along for the journey!
