Short Story: Fate

I make sure I write at least 2000 words per day. Goal accomplished. :)

I finished a short story this morning, just over 2000 words. I thought I'd call it Changeling, but Changeling has another connotation in this world so I settled for calling it Fate.

When the ocean is still, smooth like glass, the islanders call it a bad omen. Those who live under the water around the island call it the doors of fate, and say that the one who breaks that stillness will find themselves in a different life than they had intended.

I've never been able to write about the Mer who live in the Demons Bay because I don't know enough about them. I don't know their culture, their traditions, their superstitions.

So this is a start. I never thought I'd be able to write about the Ameso either, and look where that ended up! :)

That does sound intriguing.

2000 words a day is a large goal so congratulations on achieving it.

That's my daily goal. I didn't expect it to turn into a short story, but I'm not going to object. :)
