All through January, I've been part of a vss (Very Short Story) challenge. Each day, we are to post a tweet using the prompts provided by vssCollab (https://www.worldanvil.com/w/vsscollab/a/vsscollab-challenge-article) and https://vss365today.com/.
I chose to focus on my current project Secret Agent Someone- specifically on the singed remnants of his troubled beginning. Below is a link to the page where all the tweets can be found and read in order. This will be updated daily and together will form a comprehensive story. I plan to release the full tale of his childhood soon... it's something he doesn't wish to divulge, so I originally did not want this book to come first, though I did publish the first chapter of Troubled Beginnings featuring his parents here long ago (https://theprose.com/post/368005/chapter-one-troubled-beginnings) so I suppose there has been a little back-and-forth in my mind for a couple of years, but I've finally settled on telling the story in order.
The novella should be coming soon, but, for now, enjoy these singed remnants before he burns the past completely to ash and laughs.
God bless, much success, and I pray your new year is going well so far!
