Spent yesterday researching a short story idea for a competition to support Bloody Scotland, a tartan noir crime writing festival.
While the limit is 3,000 words I think I’ve come up with a satisfying little tale. I’m struggling to cut it down in some ways but it is good discipline to get into. Also creating a backstory and plot from scratch flexes muscles I haven’t flexed in a good while. If it goes nowhere then I can dust it off and expand it to a novella but I think it’s good as a short.
Revision on Ghost based on editor comments is 1/3 complete…
