This has been fun. Especially trying to recreate the atmosphere of the early 1930’s.  I get to go through my old books and online for research.  I’ve also written over 140k and 400 manuscript pages in just over a month.  I will post the first part of chapter 6, Mermaid On The Farm on Monday.

Mermaid Chapter 3

Sorry about the lack of posts recently.  I’ve been so locked up in the mermaid story that I haven’t taken the time to set up the digest posts or work on regular posts.  On the other hand writing the mermaid story is heading toward 140k words or so and an ending. I’ve written 100k words so here’s chapter 3.

A Snippet

I’m sorry about the light posting of late. A week or so I ran into this picture and for some reason decided to write a story about it.

This tripped off one of my creative binges and the story now has 65,000 odd words so far and doesn’t seem to want to stop. The working title is mermaid in the pot.

If people like this chapter I’ll post more. It’s urban fantasy with mermaids, mobsters, secret agents, big projects and hurricanes. And the bad guys are just starting to show up.
