- Robert Frost, "Now Close the Windows"
A few weeks ago, a couple guys invited me to participate in a Google+ group they called Legendary Author Battles (LAB). It's a shared storytelling like we have discussed here in the past. One writer begins, the other continues, and back and forth until a conclusion. Then Simon Cantan makes a video of the authors reading their parts.
This is my first one, and even though I wish I could have taken my reading dramatics up several notches, I think the story itself is pretty good. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong.
The story is an urban fantasy which pits a telepathic librarian against an urban developer. The businessman wants to buy up the neighborhood, but the librarian and his neighbors won't go along with him. That standard beginning doesn't come anywhere near describing the whole story, so give it a listen and tell me what you think.
I shared this story with Dave Higgins, who has a new book out.
