Have you ever had one of those days where a story would not let you go?
Luckily, it was today on my last day off for five days.
I was writing the bit of Lagniappe that I intend to put at the end of all my NOT-SO-INNOCENTS Steampunk novels.
It is the short story, DRAGONS OF THE BARBARY COAST.
5,500 words so far. Whew!!
The tagline for it is:
"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The taglines fits one of the major characters, Ah Toy --
The first Asian Madame in the San Francisco of the 1850's.
Samuel McCord, a young Mark Twain, and two dragons dueling in the shadows of the 1851 Barbary Coast.
Have you ever been so caught up in a story that it just poured out of you?
Tell me your experiences, will you?
