We’ve all had that one person that walks into our lives and changes our world so drastically that when they walked back out of our lives, we didn’t know what to do. That was where the inspiration for my latest story “Year of The Psycho” started out. Well, really it started out as “Summer of the Psycho” due to a joke between friends but the more I got to thinking about it, the more it just didn’t seem fair to end there. So I started writing, and decided to end where it felt right, honestly, I still haven’t found that spot and it’s still a work in progress. In fact, I’m on the 4th revision of the table of contents because I keep adding chapters and rearranging them.
Yet the process of writing it has been a blast, part truth, part embellishment, the story has really taken on a life of it’s own. The whole point of the story was that when the reader picked it up, they’d be left wondering. Did it really happen? Would they really do that? It’s a fine line that along the way blurs and leaves the reader trying to decide fact from fiction.
I truly hope that you have as much fun reading it as I’ve had writing it because that is what matters. So let me take you on a journey, but buckle up, it could get a little bumpy because life isn’t always simple nor smooth!
