I don’t know if you all have read anything by John Saul, let alone my favorite Saul novel, The Homing, but I have been thinking of that novel all day. When you haven’t read a book for years and continue thinking of it… there’s obviously something to say about the quality of the writing.
There is this concept I’m struggling with for writing a short story, the use of insects as a larger entity, a driving force, which is largely addressed in this novel. I’m beginning to write the story, with no idea of how it will end or really how my idea functions as the beginning (only that it will be placed…at the beginning), so we will see how this goes. I’ll be posting the story as-is once I finish it tonight, under its title (yet undecided).
