The Rings: Redux A re-write of an old story of mine

Posted at

Yes it's true that this is not new. It is a re-write of the original version of 'The Rings'. It's a story I'm still proud of.

So why the re-write:

In hindsight, I'm willing to admit ithe original wasn't perfect. There were too many plot gaps, and I feel that the ending was telegraphed too early in the story. I had allowed the character of the wife to become too accommodating. Other characters were a bit 2 dimensional. So this new version is what I feel this story should have been. It's much longer than the original, (well over 17,000 additional words.) I've attempted to close a few of the plot holes where possible. I'm going to leave the original version up so you can compare them (should you be interested.)
