What’s Up With Inkling

First off, if you’ve been reading Inkling, my urban fantasy serial, thanks!

Second, if you’ve wondered where the heck it went, the answer is: work.

Inkling, and the entire Fifteen Minute Fiction project, was begun as a way to get myself into a writing headspace on short notice.  To jump into a story and run with whatever idea came to me next.  I think it’s largely been a success on that score, until I reached the current transition point and a pretty hefty work crunch at the same time.

While it’s been on the back burner for a few weeks now, Inkling will return tomorrow, and we’re edging towards the middle of the story, before the crash bang fall into the end.

The good news is, I’m going to be updating the story on a regular basis again, until it’s done.  I’m going to compensate for a lack of extra time in which to write huge chunks of it by working on a section all week, and posting everything I’ve got on Friday.  So it’ll be Fifteen Minute Fiction Fridays, which, I won’t lie, appeals to my sense of alliteration.

So there you go.  New Inkling tomorrow.  In the meantime, if you want to refresh your memory, or read it for the first time, you can find it all here:  Inkling – A Fifteen Minute Fiction Serial


Inkling Hiatus

With the crush of looming deadlines, day job madness, and guerilla litterbox maintenance, I need to take something off my plate for a few weeks.  To that end, Inkling will be going on a short hiatus.  I will return with more free, urban fantasy goodness on Tuesday, August 16, 2011.

In the meantime, feel free to get a friend or two hooked on it, or leave me a comment on what you’d like to see developed in the story.  I can’t promise that I’ll write exactly what you want, but this is just the first story in the Inkling’verse, and there’s a lot of room to explore.
