I have just under two precious weeks of break in between classes, and I’m determined to do some writing. In order to get the juices flowing, I’ve decided to destroy the planet. Yeah, I’m pretty excited. To this end, I’ve released the first installment of a new science fiction serial: (WW)2. Here’s the pitch:
A war unlike any humankind has ever faced now threatens the race with extinction. As the nations of Earth crumble in the wake of the invaders, isolated defenders prepare for a last stand.
I’m excited about running a serial story on my blog. I’ve got a high-level story arc mapped out, as well as a few immediate installments in the works. But aside from that, there’s room to grow in this story. The central characters are really interesting to me, particularly an unsavory CIA agent who belongs in prison more than anywhere else, but is thrust into the final lines of Earth’s defense.
As to the releases: first, I can only promise that they will be erratic. I hope to release a short (1-5 page) installment every few weeks. I can’t commit to anything because my classes are research and writing intensive, and they’re only getting more difficult. I hope you’ll bear with me.
Second, I plan on releasing the installments first on Wattpad, then on my blog. A month or two ago, I opened an account over at Wattpad. I’m not entirely sure why I did so, since I don’t have a whole lot of time to develop a new social media site. I think it was because the site is geared toward sharing writing and receiving feedback, so it was an opportunity to connect with new readers and to hear from other writers. So if you’re part of the Wattpad community, please look me up: WLinde. Otherwise, you can follow along right here. You can expect the first posting over the next few days, or you can check it out now right here: (WW)2.
Thank you all for your support. I appreciate it more than I can say.
