True lies


Chickamauga

I copied another of my stories from my private Lord Bubbha’s Blog to my public Brass Tacks blog. Click the link if you have no burning desire for potent literature; I will leave it posted for a few days. It is another story based on an actual happening; someone did rob a local bank and a constable chased him on foot and got shot in the ass for his trouble.

Some folks say my stories are too short, lacking needed details and I agree they are not of Stephen King length or quality, nor do I intend them to be such. Most of my tales are concise and meant to be recited, changed, and added to as they are told; they were written with Jonesborough’s storytelling festival in mind. The story I just posted has a plot–the quest for love; a protagonist–our love denied hero; and an antagonist–flirting frustration. It has a decent lead paragraph and an ok ending, therefore I consider it print-worthy for a blog. It is 2,200 words and so can be read in a few minutes, much like the Chap Books of the 19th Century.

  1. Ken, I hope you don’t mind if I read and print this story in my office (it’s late in Warsaw and now I must go for a short walk with my doggy). It’s really interesting that you write your tales with Jonesborough’s storytelling festival in mind.
    My congrats for Jeremy on his gig. 🙂

  2. Of course you can print it; I can email you a .pdf if you want.
    Thanks and have a good evening, my friend. 🙂

  3. Thanks. I will be gratful for such attachment in your email. 🙂

  4. I’ll read on my break and will look forward to it. An up and coming superstar you have hey? I wish him well and mostly complete happiness in whatever he chooses to do in order to pay the bills.

    • It ain’t a great story, Tammy, but when my late friend Bro Hill told me about the incident, I had to write something. Thanks for the good vibes for Jeremy; he works temp at Boeing so I hope he can better himself through his music. Thanks, and Merry Christmas, my friend.
