Some Thoughts on the Children’s Story

It’s so fucking hard! I have a rough draft done. And by rough, I mean, my main character doesn’t have a name until halfway through and the ghost doesn’t yet have a name at all.

And I’m not sure if having the ghost be a result of child abuse is too much for kids. But then I think, well, in any audience, someone is going through that.

Still finding the right tone is hard.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m really, really enjoying it. But every time I sit down and look at the words, I’m reminded that I’m trying something I just have no fucking idea about.


The Friday the 13th Book Club

Just a reminder, if you want to do the book club, the deal is that you go to East Side Story, buy a copy of A City of Ghost and tell Chuck you’re coming to the book club. It’s at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 13th.

Right now, there are apparently only a handful of people signed up. And I am a little nervous that a discussion with so few people is only going to take fifteen minutes.

So, if you’re on the fence, please consider dropping into the field near me.
