The Atheist and The Christian

     I'm  excited to announce that I'm busy working on another writing project. This one is going to be something new for me. It's a completely original short story, which for the first time won't be directly linked to a proven classic. That's right. I'm trekking out on my own. I've still got my irons in the fire regarding a companion story (actually bookend stories) for "The Yellow Wallpaper" but I'm taking a break from each of those until summer. All the same, I am planning to get at least one of those two done in 2013.
     My new, original, project is plotted and about a quarter complete. It's coming together relatively easy because I'm not beholden to a previous author's vision and writing style. It's just me, my mechanical keyboard, and my two characters.If you haven't pieced it together as yet, one of these characters is a Christian and the other an Atheist. They're life-long friends who've learned to ignore the one gap neither can seem to cross. They each believe what they believe and no series of discussions or life altering events can seem to sway one another. That is until the Christian proposes a fairly simple question with a real-world catch. What's that question? Well, I'm not gonna tell! Not yet at least. It suffices to write that it's the kind of question that would test the resolve of any atheist whether he'll admit it or not.
     I'm shooting for a summer release, but it's never easy predicting when the writing will be entirely done. For now you can enjoy the mock cover I designed. It may undergo a few changes but it's pretty much the way I want it to go to press.
