Notes & Observations

A mellow night of writing, full of many short sections leading up to the main action of the novel. The sections were short and full of pace – lot of potential here.


"J— stood in the empty street, and hated feeling like a bad Western movie. He waited for the twanged notes of a guitar, for the tumbleweed to roll-bounce past, for the clod-step of a dusty boot to come into frame, in the middle of the street, opposite him.

But it was just him.

The sky darkened as clouds gathered. The sun was a memory; daylight and brightness were the stuff of fancy.

There was only J—, and the empty world.

Or so he thought."
