I have just finished posting Samuel. It is one of the darkest stories that I've written. Some would say that it is a dramatic departure from Quatyl, Magic, and the Donaldsons. I would have to agree with that.
I just finished reading the collected works of another author here on SOL. He has over four hundred stories, but they are just the same three stories written with different names. The structure of all of his stories is identical. Each as the same beginning and he has one of three endings that are used over and over.
I do not want to be that kind of author. I want each story of mine to reach for something different. Whether the subject matter is spiritual, emotional, adventure, personal growth, humor, or just plain coping with life, each story should be unique.
The rate at which I've been posting has diminished significantly over the past year. My life has been busier than ever and only now is the dust beginning to settle. I will be posting more stories and completing the stories begun here, but my posts will continue to be sporadic for the time being. Please be patient.
