A serial writer’s notebook ~ from the pen behind Lore of the Underlings, an episodic epic…
The road to Hell is paved with Lore. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Check out the start of Episode 7. Nothing about it is heaven-sent:
“How can you tell if you’ve gone to hell?”
John Cap groaned and tried again to pry his heavy eyelids open. Everything around him was red, not to mention sideways. And spinning.
“Guess that answers that… pffft!”
The young man spit out a mouthful of soot, a bitter powder he’d somehow inhaled. Flecks of it stuck to his tongue and lips. He found his face half buried in it.
He struggled to lift his groggy head from the pillow of pale-gray, ghostly ash. His body rose but then fell back to bed in cinders of something recently burned and reduced to a fine, warm dust.
Travel tip: Next time use the GPS.
