Really pleased to see Another Armitage posting here. The Day it Rained Forever packs a lot into 5K words. It leaves you thinking on: ethics, how you might cope in such a situation, and how real life seldom offers up happily-ever-after endings.
Just submitted what I can only call a whimsy. The kernel of this one came to me in the early 90's. It surfaced every so often, until 2013 or so, when it more or less completed itself. Posted elsewhere under an old pen name. If nothing else, hope "A Republic of Dogs" gives you a quick smile. hhj
... well maybe personal creative process. (hmm, same diff)
I suspect every writer deals with (or manufactures) a host of influences to inspire, retard, deflect, reflect and/or drive forward their story. Those factors seem to reverse polarity on some secret, irregular basis. And that's the good part.
For me, an image is often useful to inspire what is to come or to be inspired by what already is in mind. If of interest, take a look at the Story Covers album on my Haro James facebook account. Or not.
Then there is a reading and rereading of a favoured Arthur Rimbaud translation. But that is another discussion altogether …
There was a chilling realization that the story I thought to post was 'boring as crap'. Then the MRS suggested I move on to the next one ... duh, shoulda come up with that myself. Anyway, here it is - The Child Takes a Nurse.
The Muse has wandered back. Demanded a coffee, then sniped about the roast, the sweetener and size of mug. Hoping to complete edits on #8 in the Phantom collection in the next day.
