Time, now, to read...
- Mar 3, 2014
Hi, @Tywin! I had a story a few years ago in the noir genre, I think it was, that did okay in the voting...I received a few votes. The MC mentions a son, and he's important to the story, but he doesn't appear in the story. .Has anyone ever written a sequel on here month to month?
Next month, I wrote a tale about the boy, now a man, who hears his pop (from the previous story) has died; same names for both, if I recall. I thought the sequel idea, because it fit the new theme, was pretty neat. And it wasn't picked up, I am fairly sure, by anyone, which was fine, because I liked the second story, too.
I felt I couldn't mention in the second month's discussion thread that the new story was the sequel to my previous story, because we're not, according to the rules, allowed to explain our stories in any kind of detail. I kept hoping someone would say, "Hey, aren't these the guys from last month??" - I would have beamed - but if didn't happen.
So, I think it's okay to do this, in general (is that right, Mods?), though there's always the risk it may not be picked up/remembered by anyone not reading these posts. Maybe if you write it, and post it, don't mention the connection. I've taken Ambien tonight, and that's the best advice I can come up with. Good luck, CC
