The Smiling Merchant

Post by chemi » Tue Oct 23, 2018 10:50 pm

While the manuscript for The Isle of Donne has been difficult (mostly because now I'm at the point where I have to start bringing stuff together to a set point rather than let them meander off wherever), I'm not completely without something to share.

This particular piece is a short story that kinda came about because of a character I liked writing about when the opportunity arose... but there really weren't any real opportunities to do so. I actually kinda rewrote an entire chapter of The Daynish Campaign in order to give him and his two mentors a bit more screen time. It's kinda a tale about self-awareness, privilege, and how it can be very, very hard to balance those things with your own troubles.

Ah well, I've never been terribly good at lead-ins or promotions... so I'll just let ya get to it.

(Yes, I know. It's a PDF file. Yes, I know some people don't like that format. It'll be okay. I promise.)
