Three Stories For Your Consideration

I wrote a longer post earlier in the week to post for today, but I got to thinking: It’s Halloween tomorrow, so I decided that I would take a moment and ask for comments  on no less than three supernatural stories that I have started, (two nearly completed. Just as I start to truly knuckle-down to get my writings finished/polished, life gets complicated again, or shall I say, gets more complicated.)

I know that the characters will intrude on each other and make the final decision for me about who gets to the finish line first, but which would you most likely be interested in reading first, (or perhaps: which one is the least unpalatable to you?)

Please consider:

 1) A guardian angel tries to justify the comedy of errors that occur when another guardian rightly foils a foolish attempt by the first to unduly influence the second angel’s charge whiletrying to save a marriage.

2) A magician finds his tricks working better than ever, despite his beautiful assistant’s erratic behavior. He discovers that he has help from another source.

3) A hapless young woman has one small problem after another, and can’t quite get a grasp on why she has unlikely impulses and feelings of reproach. (Based on the actual story of a friend.)

The first two are close to completion, (but far from edited).  The third is only begun, but that story won’t leave me alone. I have tried to block it out, and so I am not even sure how it will play out.

The first one is short novel length, (I think); the other two are even shorter. The second one is definitely a short story.

I realize that this post and the summaries are truly brief, but I did them on the fly, with Halloween in mind.

What do you think? 

Do you think that you’d be interested in any of these?

Please let me know.

    The Third would be my least favorite.
    Of the First and Second — they’re almost a tie (to me). The first seeming more like a screwball comedy (which I love) and the Second seeming more like a supernatural mystery (which also appeals to me).

    • Yes, the last one isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there is a real deal between her experiences and mine. The first one is a comedy,(I hope it shows!) Actually, it’s a story that occurred to Jonny some years ago but he said that he didn’t know how to write it. Another book, the first ‘romance’, needs to be completed. I keep having these stories bouncing around and taking my attention from the WIP, (whichever it is at the time.)

    Number one seems complicated, but number two sounds like fun. Number three sounds sad, and I try to stick to uplifting stories. Hope you finish something soon!

  3. Thanks. The first is not really complicated; I was just trying to get out too much info in too short of a space.


  4. In order of interest 2
    1, 2, and 3. The first two are nearly tied. The first sounds like it would have some great comedy moments and that’s certainly what I’m wanting right now.

  5. Thank you, Angie. That is MY order, as well. I HOPE others will find funny what I do!

    One, one, one!
    They all sound good, but #1 was the one that really jumped out at me that I’d love to pick up NOW and read!
    But I know what you mean about life getting complicated, and also characters jumping out and cutting in line. Oh – doesn’t that happen far too often!

    • My characters are forceful, Trisha! I should probably question my sanity!
      Yes, #1 is the top of these, although there is also a nearly finished novel that I suppose you would call ‘romance’; it involves a couple and the wife choosing to ignore signs of possible problems, and somehting of a mystery they find. There are also the stories of assorted people around them on their island vacation. I don’t know why these are so hard for me to write “The End”.

    They all sound appealing to me. I’m sorry I didn’t get by last week, but we had no power, therefore no computer.
