I wrote a thing!

Today my story “Sparks” is available at Electric Spec.

This one’s a little weirdo that I don’t quite know what to say about. I sat down to do a worldbuilding exercise and suddenly it seemed to look almost story-shaped by mistake. So I thought I’d try to fit it into a story structure, and I let myself listen to the character’s unusual voice, and this is what came out.

Anyway, I’m thrilled that the people at Electric Spec liked it and I hope maybe you will to.

    I read your story on the bus and missed my stop!

    That’s interesting that you describe it as stemming from an effort at worldbuilding. I felt like the first section was something added on to make the setting clear to readers who weren’t versed in connecting the dots; the REAL beginning was “the boy is tall.” But it sounds like you started with that first section.
