A Tomb in Every Tree – The Process

A Tomb in Every Tree is story number thirty-seven in the #52ShortStories challenge.

**SPOILERS BELOW. If you have not read the story and want to be (hopefully) surprised, come back to this when you’re done.**

The title for this story came from the Lord Byron poem, Don Juan, specifically Canto XIII. Honestly, no clue where the Korean War background came from, but I ran with it. I’ve also been taking a recent class on Depth in Writing (HIGHLY recommended, as are all of the WMG courses I’ve taken), so I tried to put some of that into practice here. This was another story that seemed to move along for me.

My favorite quote from the daily journal:

I think it’s good enough. Maybe not perfect, but I don’t have time for perfect (no one does).

Here’s the general scratch file:

  1. You’re right…we don’t have time for perfect! You’ve been quite diligent with your stories, Phillip. I think you should do NaNoWriMo in November. 🙂

  2. Oooh, I’ll think about it Jill. I’m still a little shell-shocked over my last couple of failed attempts. lol 🙂
