A lot can be accomplished with a raging fury and no care as to whether you live or die.
I’m mulling a short story that explores the ideas of loss, fury, revenge, and possibly redemption. It’s going to have to rattle around in my skull for a while longer before even the concept is ready for the light of day. Mainly, I need to flesh out the story arc before beginning. Writing fiction to me has always been somewhat like steering a supertanker. You have to think well ahead and start your turns miles in advance.
It also doesn’t help that your captain is a bit rusty. I haven’t attempted a short in 25 years. Going to have to break through the rust and blow out the cobwebs.
