Something special for you; because you are – each and every one of you – special. Special.
So, I went away for a week and got lots done. Among the things I did was get everything edited for this week’s post. Super! I’m ahead of the game, yay, me! Of course, that sort of hubris is always punished. When I got home, the power button on my computer was no longer functional. Off to the repair shop for warrenty-covered repairs it went, and in the meantime I had no access to my stuff because the trip had interrupted my backup routines. Which meant:
No access to chapter 13. But I am nothing if not adaptable. Says me, I will write a new goddamn story!
Veil War Thursday this week will not feature the continuing adventures of Captain Lewis and Prince Raimond and the gang. Instead, I offer you Curses. Just so you know, this story takes place back in the states a couple days after the veil opens. It is hot off the presses – I finished writing it quite literally seconds ago. Hope you like it.
Please expand this! I feel it’s a necessary side story to your already amazing Veil War.
I think I’ve explained this at some point, but for those who haven’t read every single post (and why haven’t you? Shame!) the deal is this:
Captain Lewis’ story is about half of what will eventually be the complete Veil War novel. The other half will be centered largely on the travels and travails of one family fleeing Virginia and the goblins invading there. The rest will be little bits that shed light on various things that need light shone on them.
Like a Tom Clancy novel in structure, the final product will bounce from character to character as the story unfolds. In reading here at veilwar.com, you’ve been following one thread straight through. Until today, anyway.
So, I’ll be writing more of these shorter things as I finish the novel. I won’t always post them (Oh, noes! :0 ) but they are all part of telling the complete story. And someday, you’ll get your bonus story, too.
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Hot Damn!”
Ok, you said that you thought we were all “special”…and you said that several times–even using italics. So, is that “special–set apart because we are neat, cool, great to hang out with….”
Is that “special–like short bus riding, knuckle dragging, troglodytes special”? Not that I find either to be an over-the-top description of myself….I’m just askin’ for clarity’s sake.
Ambiguity is the soul of art.
I drive those type of school buses, and the special needs kids are not knuckle-dragging troglodytes. That’s the football team charters. I have less trouble with the special needs kids, even with a coach on the bus.

And having said that, I ask you: Have you ever been elected to, or held, political office….???
If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.
