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?)
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.
