Is That a Light I See?

As I lay awake last night watching the minutes disappear on my clock (the heat, oh the heat) I had a small breakthrough with my short story. Now I wasn't inspired enough to get up and start writing (the heat, oh the heat) but I am attacking "The Watcher" head-on instead of warily sidling up to it holding my breath.

I think since this is a new format for me (haven't written a short story since high school and that was back when Caesar was searching for a decent Chianti) the mathematical approach will work best. The story can be broken into four sections. I know my desired word total. Divide and conquer.

No idea if this will actually work. I'll keep you posted. (the heat, oh the heat)!


  1. Well, good luck on the new angle. Say, weren’t Caesar and Euclid buddies?

  2. I wish you great luck. I have not yet mastered the art of short story writing, so I greatly admire those who do.
