OK it's a bit late for the first weekly post. I have been side tracked. Gaming wise it was X Wing, real world wise, a pal of mine has needed help with his Masters Dissertation and all my writing effort has gone into this. It has to be in by the end of the week so that will be that and I can get back to what I enjoy!
Where is this going? I hear you cry. Nowhere, really just explanation.
I intend to return to my hillbilly stories. Why? Well the character, Ernie Carver, is based on a pen friend of mine, Ernie. How I knew him is a complicated story, he existed in North Carolina. Sadly, he died in November, of natural causes (he was the same age as me), so I intend to write a short novella about him. This will be based on his (fictitious) experiences in zombie filled backwoods where he grew up and his real experiences as a backwoodsman. In his later life he got involved with 'native american' spirituality, another complicated story! Therefore I may try to weave some of this into the tales.
I trawled the internet and I found this picture. Which remarkably is not unlike a rugged Ernie.
See you all soon in the ether.
Keep safe, warm and dry.
