New Short Story in Progress

I outlined a new short story a couple of weeks ago and started working on it last night.

This one is a different genre for me; it's not sci-fi, it's not superheroic, there's little "fantasy" to it. The story is more straight-up crime fic with influences from The Godfather. And I hope I mean "influenced" and not a complete ripoff of a classic.

The idea for this story came after reading the Mario Puzo's book and re-watching the Godfather movies. I promise there will be no Joey Zasa. Or Andy Garcia.

What it all means, however, is that it's time for an update on the Reggie Miller Writing Continuum. I wrote for about an hour and a half last night, churning out more than 1,500 words. It's not a banner night, but it is an average one.
