Howdy All --
Attached, if I have done this correctly, should be the first two sections of one of the novelish somethings I've been working on. It's the oldest of the three. I have deep affection for it but have not worked on it in earnest in quite some time. I thought sharing parts with all of you might be just what I need to give it some renewed energy and attention.
The working title is Taika's Song and I would classify it is a kind of real-world fantasy story. Not sure that's a real category or something I've made up myself, lol, but the idea is of a so-called "regular" day-to-day life with an infusion of something unexpected and fantastical rather than a story told in a completely constructed fantastical world.
Besides overall thoughts and feedback on the writing itself, what I'd most like to know is if there is any interest at all in knowing what happens next to the two main characters introduced in these two sections. It's about 2500 words, I think, so I hope that's not too much.
Thank you in advance for any and all thoughts.
