Back in 2005 (I think) I wrote a short story for class about Sachiko and her friend Megan. Lesbian love develops. Oh la la! The following year I wrote a first-person narrative (my first, no pun intended) from Megan’s point-of-view. The professor loved it and having just read both pieces I have to say I did improve a bit in the writing there.
I love these two girls. But I haven’t spent much of any time with them in uh, years really. For instance, I had forgotten that Sachiko only refers to Megan by her nickname “Zen”. And since Megan’s piece was in first-person I can’t really say what she would refer to herself as, in her head at least. Aloud she calls herself “Zen” too.
Anyway, the point is I want to expand on this story of theirs I’ve created but I am so out of practice! I am not sure where to even start the, I don’t know, novella form of the story. I think it’d make most since to start from near where the first short story did, I also am thinking first-person might be the best option.
I’m fairly certain I’ve forced both shorts onto everyone who is currently reading this blog post.
