Well, that was Ozzie Rozzie. And, here it is in PDF format (720k) for your download pleasure.

I really enjoyed writing fiction for a month. I went back through the story once finished and tidied it up, correcting the odd typo, removing a couple of minor contradictions, enhancing the details here and there. It was fun to abandon the dialogic nature of blogging for a while, just to run on a steady path towards a destination. I didn’t know I was going to write some episodes until I got there, so reading them back was as much a surprise to me as it was to you.

I’d also say that of all nine things I’ve done with the humble blog format this year, writing serialised fiction was the most demanding, and the most rewarding. I wonder how many more stories there are lurking like dodgy mushrooms just beneath the damp forest floor.

What fun. What next?

    “I really enjoyed writing fiction for a month.”

    Do more of it.

    Fiction is real these days. Find the interface. The perfect piece (the short-short-story format) that definitively marries journalism and fiction. A piece that can be read as either.
