This week I have been writing quite feverishly, as inspiration has struck for the second part of the short story I am currently writing. It can be divided into two distinct parts, and once I had put down the pen at the end of part one, I hit a bit of a stumbling block on how to progress to part two, as the story was set to become much darker, more revealing, less cryptic.
I have written about the plot before – it is about a teacher who becomes involved in the troubled life of one of his students. Putting his career and integrity at risk, he believes he can help her overcome her demons, little knowing that the secrets she keeps are more dark and dangerous than he could ever imagine. Perhaps, when it’s finished, I will reveal a little more.
