I have now concluded my ten-part fiction serial, ‘It Begins’. During this week, I will put it all together in one long post, for those of you who prefer to read it all at once.
As usual, I would like to thank everyone who read it all, and especially those who left the valued comments. Nothing pleases me more than to see people trying to work out what might happen, or having opinions about the characters.
Following on from past serials, it attracted the same number of readers, between 50-70 for each part. That’s fine with me, as I appreciate that sticking with a 1000+ word fiction piece every day is not to everyone’s taste. And most people just don’t have the time to spare either. If anyone didn’t like the story, feel free to tell me that too. I am always interested in your opinions, either way.
I know from previous experience that some readers are interested in how I work out what happens, and get the various characters together in the same place. On this occasion, I diverted from the earlier serials, by having the ending in mind before I started on Part One. I worked ‘backwards’ from the final paragraph, to create the world that Jack lived in, leading up to the conclusion.
I have no idea when the next serial will pop into my head. Meanwhile, I will be working on a ‘Photo-prompt’ short story, inspired by Sue Judd. https://suejudd.com/
Thanks again, and best wishes to you all. Pete.
