Opinions, Please …

A couple of months ago, I wrote a blog post about changes in my life and mentioned that I was turning my writing attention toward fiction. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll remember that a couple of weeks ago, I had an idea for a short story that my husband decided was the beginnings of a novel. I switched gears and started working on that story instead of the original one.

As I also mentioned in that May post, although Pete is a good sounding board and usually objective, I like other feedback, too. So I thought I’d post the first chapter here and see what y’all thought.


Should I keep on with this story?

    Wooo, I like it so far! You were pretty quick to build up interest which I like. I’m one of those that if you don’t have my interest by the end of the first chapter, MAYBE second, I’m likely to put it down and leave it. I’m ready to find out what they “watch your back” was all about 🙂

    Absolutely. And considering I RARELY read fiction, you know I mean it. Who would have thought you would get me interested in wondering what’s up with the ogre boss?
