“Awakening” was conceived for one of my “Photo and the Flash” posts (No. 10), and simmered for nearly two months before I wrote Chapters 2 and 3.
I had originally conceived of a longer story, one involving recurring “episodes” based on a different ending than presented here. I still have ideas for continuing the narrative, and eventually I aim to get to it.
For now, the post following this one presents the conclusion of what may eventually evolve into a saga of sorts.
NOTE: I’m traveling Monday, my regular scheduled day, so I’m pushing the “publish” button a few hours shy of Sunday midnight, local time (although, technically the East Coast is already into Monday).
This way, tomorrow I can just concentrate on driving.
