Its been called many things, but I’ve settled with the title “The Ghost Removal”.
This story is one of those things in life that just will not leave me alone.
I’ve had the idea and first draft for over 7 years now (I wrote the first draft by hand in a notebook) and it consistently pokes me in my ribs to let me know that it is still here and is dire need of publishing…but I can’t get anyone to read it.
This is where superior marketing skills should come in to play.
The whole egocentric thing is hard to deal with when it comes to getting people to read your own work.
- Should I threaten them with bodily harm?
- Hold a loved one hostage until it is read and reviewed?
The way I post it for it to be read doesn’t help either. I kinda just copy and paste the entire text and expect someone to come upon this massive heap of 3300 words and be enthralled by it.
So I believe I kind of fixed this problem by posting it in 3 separate parts with direct links for the next parts placed at the end of each respective parts (…confused? I am.)
I just hope this is one of those short stories that is read and interpreted differently by each polarized reader. Its something of a benchmark in my writing and I hope it is finally read.
