That is, the long-ago prequel story to my current The Sinister Sequel
seemed to be a good idea, so I decided to not only unlimber my cheap pencils to illustrate, I fired up my OpenOffice Writer to do something I really wanted to do for a long time--revise an old Snoop story to get rid of my two worst writing sins, my love of ellipses and the addiction to book-saidisms which so polluted nearly all my old work. My RL project is still hesitating along, and I'm still fighting my twin literary fixations even as the plot begins to move toward its crisis and catastrophe, so why not practice by exorcising those demons from an old tale? You can still find the old version of the tale, ellipses and book-saidisms and all, on my Yuku site (down there in my ID section), but I thought I'd tell the prequel tale about how Alex Blessington and Abbie Dwight and Serenity Mabrey started on the life journey which culminates in the events of Sinister Sequel
. Don't worry, I haven't put aside any of my other projects, but I have to admit, I really am enjoying my re-do of On-Location Mystery
. Maybe I should re-work a few other ones, too...
(yeah, I know
, another ellipsis! It takes time, you know!)
