Two Very Different Stories

But which one is real?

Casual meals, breakfast or dinner, at the kitchen table with Amelia and Bonnie are always interesting. All my daughters have agile, bright, minds and the discussions with my two youngest often covers interesting topics or observations. And sometimes humorous moments. Yesterday, as they were eating, I mentioned that I had worked out the plotting for the three novels I’m writing/will write that form a trilogy: The Augur Protocol. “The first book is called, The Last Augur,” I told them. Amelia had a puzzled look on her face, “The Last Otter?” I could see her trying to work out what I would write about an otter. I laughed and explained what the word “augur” meant and its context for the trilogy. But last night it struck me; maybe what she thought the title was, could be a good story! Here’s the two cover concepts for two very different stories:



Koko, the otter, wakes to find that all the other otters have disappeared and he’s lonely. This is his journey to find other otters. Or someone to be with on Saturday nights.

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
