The Forgotten: Page 65

Page 65 of The Forgotten has been posted.

Here’s a question that only writer’s of scifi and horror have: Do you refer to a possessed entity by its physical identity, or by the identity of the possessing soul? In this scene, I have TWO… which means I have to do odd things like saying “Rinius’ body did this…” or “The boy did that…”, which sounds kind of awkward to me. Somehow, I don’t think non-genre writers have ever had to contend with that one.

    Just got home and thought I’d check to see it the update was ready. Thanks. Another good page.

    I’m sensing that the end is coming very soon. In like a few more pages. Am I right? Which will be sad because this was a very good story. Would like to have ready it in the full expanded version but this micro-chapter one was excellent.

    After all these years it was great to get a little glimpse into Eric Hoods past. Even if it was just a sliver.

    Well, you can bet once it’s finished I’ll be re-reading it all at once. This is an excellent story, and the fact that it gives more background on this particular character is one of the reasons.

    Earlier I was thinking this would be about Lovvorn. DI is full of surprises.

    Hopefully after this story, In Deed will be done in 2010. That’s another story that was left hanging.

    Yes, this is the climax of the story, and it only has a few more pages left in it. After that, there are a couple of shorter scenes that… well, you’ll see. Originally I was going to either do a full week of daily updates, or do longer pages to get the story done quicker, but that was before some unexpected work got dropped on me this week. Probably won’t be doing either of those options now, but it still shouldn’t be too long before the story is done.

    Stumbled onto this site and for some strange reason, that i can’t put my finger on, DI came to mind.

    You tell me.

    Even more interesting was the link to “Flexible women” at the bottom. Somehow monsters under the bed just could not compete with them.
