I was inspired and wrote a first person POV short story set in the same universe as How to Stop Wildfire. Asides from the universe there is not much connecting it. It is basically a monologue from a Shafien. You can read it on Medium or download it here.
It is not much but I had fun writing it. The first-person was interesting for me because I usually do not write in it. And the character was someone wholly new I made up.
Someone who read it felt like it was an allegory for modern identity-crises, such as gender/sexual identification in a LGBTQI angle and coming into one’s self. Acceptance and all that. I don’t know if I meant to do that, but I see how it can be interpreted as such. Work takes a life of its own.
Anyway, back to writing book two, which is most definitely going to be titled ‘Harmonic Waves.’ Getting excited? I am.
