I think I've got things figured out, again. Writing has gotten easier. Life is still busy. I don't have much else to say. I just thought I'd post something here to let my loyal fans know what I'm up to.
Twenty-eight thousand words. That's what I'm up to on The Freezer. Some of them are really good. Most of them make sense. If you were to ask me what this story is about, I'd ask how many words you want the answer in.
One word: Hope
One sentence: It's about a father and daughter facing the end of the world by building a spaceship out of a freezer.
More: It's the story of a man torn between his wife, who's on her way to another planet, and his six-year-old daughter, who wasn't allowed to make the trip. It's about parenting, futility, and the collapse of society. It's about religion, hypocrisy, and whether lying to your child is really ever a good thing. It's about hope in a hopeless situation and what it really takes to turn a freezer into a spaceship.
And that's just the first 28k words!
