Fifteen Minute Fiction – Inkling (pt. 13)

Last time on Inkling:

“You shouldn’t have brought your friend.  He can’t see what he’s seen, even if he doesn’t understand it.  It’s been a long time since I devoured a memory.”  Emygdia leaned in close, and Grayson didn’t know whether to look at her eyes or her teeth, both equally terrifying, and equally near.  “I remember what youth tastes like, though, and he’ll do.”

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


Fifteen Minute Fiction – Inkling (pt. 12)

When last we left Our Protagonists, one of them was bleeding, and one of them was pretty sure his day had just gotten even weirder– and that’s saying something, given the day he’s had so far.  We now return you to Inkling, already in progress.

Fifteen Minute Fiction – Inkling, pt. 11

Inkling returns from hiatus!  When last we left Our… Er, let’s call them protagonists, shall we?  Heroes might be stretching the definition a bit.  Anyway.  When last we saw or intrepid duo, this was going on:

Collin spoke again, low, glaring at Emygdia as though he’d prefer to yell.  “If I was lying, I never would have come here.  You might not trade in kind with the family, but there are plenty of people in the valley who know my name, and who would throw their lot in with me just to try ousting my uncle.  I could lie, say I still have the power for it, but I don’t.  And I don’t want that.  He promised me a life, free of his interference, and that’s all I need from him.  If he finds out what I’ve done, dying will be the least of my worries.  If he thinks someone else knows anything…”  His cadence didn’t change, but his gaze dropped, until his final words were addressed more to the floor than either of them.  “Secrets aren’t the same thing as lies.”

And now, we return you to you regularly scheduled mayhem!

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.
