And there it is! Dear Jason is my first story in 2023. It’s written in that dark-ish period in my life. I know it isn’t my best work. But I think it turned out okay, nevertheless. E-o-F put it nicely: the plot is unfocused. And he’s right! I found it hard to keep focused during writing. I had a nice premise in my head, but there was a considerable risk of writing myself into a corner. When I realized that, I started drifting a bit. And I wasn’t in the mood AT ALL to read back and make changes. So I did all of that after I was done. I never had such an extensive read-back and correction phase because of that approach.
But anyhow… It’s a story where I’m the main character. Yay! Something has happened to me, and I write about that. I don’t want to give away too much, so you’ll have to find out for yourself this time! I asked Randall to illustrate again, but he made a good point that one of the significant plot elements is pretty challenging to illustrate. So maybe next time! Thanks for even considering, Randall!
Another big thanks to E-o-F!! He’s the best at proofreading my stories. He’s always honest and immediately knows how to pinpoint weaknesses and strong points in the story and plot. And he always finds the typos I missed. I’m not a native speaker, and sometimes I still make stupid mistakes. E-o-F always manages to find them. And he’s ALWAYS willing to help! So, thank you very much, Ed!! Again.
I’m unsure yet at what pace the chapters will be released, so check out the website to see if new work is released. Or, maybe better, subscribe to the email service on my site. I’ll drop an email with that tool whenever I release new work. I sure hope you all enjoy this one. As always: please drop me an email, comment, or whatever, telling me what you think of it.
Here’s the link to the story page. Enjoy!
