Book the First
This 150 page story is the first book-length story I managed to finish. Culled from several versions of a failed plotline, Book the First will never see the light of day beyond this blog and is posted in its entirety. It began life as a 50 page short story and was lengthened and posted February-March, 2009. I wanted to see if I could actually end a story.
Basic plot: Cynical, lonely, awkward New Yorker twentysomething Lennon McKinney is tired of life. She goes to Missouri to stay with a close friend, where a tornado, driving, a theater made from a barn, and a guitar-slinging bartender just might make the summer of her life.
