Cheap Goggles: Introduction

leave a comment »

This story started formulating in my head only recently.  I think after reading Cherie Priest’s, Boneshaker (incredible book by the way), I got the itch to write something in the science fiction genre.  As this story is still “in the works” I’m not really sure where I’m going with it, however one central tenant in most of my stories is the main character inner monologues.  I always have trouble writing in third person omniscient because it feels too impersonal, so in a lot of my writing things will be told from first person view.  Or if I do include third person view, you can probably bet that it’ll be swapping into first person view, then perhaps dabbling in third person for a little narrator action (where’s Morgan Freeman when you need him).

My first thought here was simply to start writing and see where it goes.  Initially I worried about figuring out “where” and “when” this story takes place, but as I mulled over it for a long time I realized that I can’t really fit into the common Earth reality that we all know.  Therefore, I simply dubbed it “alternate reality” but very “Earthlike” in its happenings.  Once again, I hope you enjoy reading, and feel free to leave any comments, suggestions, criticisms, baked goods, and anything else you’d like!

Chapter 1 is here.
