Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!
I am sitting in a car waiting for my mother to finish her doctor’s appointment. Pray for her, she is not doing well.
Later today, I will try on a lot of clothing for my new job. This brings a high level of anxiety for me as it is the fear of the unknown.
I can sleep outside in the winter; the game trails and forest are familiar to me. Facing an angry gang member in a prison is commonplace.
But so help me, I am afraid of dress shoes, buttons, and neckties. There just ain’t no good can come of it. Yes, I understand wearing Sunday go-to-meeting attire on the Lord’s day, but every day? What will become of me?
I take solace in writing about today. I am concerned.
Writing is a relatively new craft for me and I have written about 100,000 words in the Ongoing Tale. There are a few plot holes, but I feel it was a good start in exploring the realm of fiction.
Self-expression in the form of art is important to me and I am thinking of starting the tales again, but somewhere new, with new characters.
I have been dabbling with the idea of a western or a steampunk theme. I have also been interested in a World War 3 type scenario.
One of the options is using the existing world so I can go back to it if I so desire.
For the few die-hard fans of the Ongoing Tale, I believe that may be the best route, but who knows, we will have to see.
If I shelf La Longi, I will make a page with all the chapters for easy reference.
As I move forward, I am open to ideas from you, my readers.
