Mine is called ‘Ignominy’
About a year ago I signed up for a free online creative writing course as research for running my own. In those ten weeks participants were invited to write the bones of a short story. I came up with plain Jane on a train. Yeah, I guess I was feeling a bit cynical and detached as I was really just being a spy, but I jumped through the hoops and engaged anyway.
Then I tinkered with this Jane and her train journey, and the more I did, the darker the story became. The result is ‘Ignominy’, a dark tale about a train journey, describing where Jane has been, who she meets, and what happens as a result.
I ended up loving Jane so much I employed the same style in a novel-length work, which I am hoping will be published next year.
You can order a copy of this anthology, available in all formats, and enjoy all the other dark tales it contains here.
