My Fictional Life

The Middle Child, May 27, 2015

After a run of sequential stories around the middle of the series, tonight marks the middle story in a trilogy that plays with time in a slightly different way. Only three more to go and then we’re going to need another puppets series; one which tonight is setting up, in the usual roundabout way.

Finally Out In Front, May 20, 2015

I’ve pulled ahead for the first time in a long time this week, with next week’s story also going up in readiness tonight. I’m hoping to leverage that time into finishing Ponzi, which is almost there; the set up is completed tonight for the crown jewel in the series to follow in two weeks!

Like Hatpins In The Eyes, May 13, 2015

Enjoyed a real grind tonight to get down to the requisite length. Three section stories are fairly rare, and those blank lines to denote the scene changes actually make quite a difference. I know there are one or two four section stories, Axel was a glorious five, and there’s at least one six, too; maybe just the one? For tonight I wanted to do half a page, full page, then end with half again, but it didn’t work out. Yes, I’m pretty anal about that kind of thing; examples include The Devil During Downtime in which, in the original format, it was exactly one page each side. Oh, and I’m sure I’ve said this before, but fuck you Freud.

There are some potentially jarring pieces of information revealed in tonight’s Ponzi, as we move to five more stories remaining in the series. All this stuff has been built in from the start, but it might feel a little odd when just thrown out there for the first time. Every single line in this one was precious, though, as there's so much going on; a slave to the breakneck pace!
