The Legend Of Dawsons Mine: The Serialization Of A Fictional Work
During the month of November I participated in the National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. During that time I sat at my keyboard in the office in my basement and spewed forth a semi coherent story of just over 50,000 words.
Since then I have whittled the story down to a much more interesting and bite sized length of about 22,000 words.
Those words have been polished (slightly), edited (by a friend), formatted (thanks Google Docs!), and is ready to be unleashed unto the world.
The Synopsis Is Thus:
<queue booming movie trailer announcer voice>
"In a world governed by satellite geolocation technology, and tupperware hidden in the woods, two unsuspecting brothers head off geocaching in the mountains of North Carolina.
What they found was more than they ever imagined. The untold mystery of one of the darkest chapters in Appalachian history.
This secret, however, is not without its guardians.
Will they solve the mystery? Will they survive the wrath of the guardians? Will they go to the other side of the road, look behind the guardrail, find the cache, and sign the log?
Will they survive the horror that is The Legend Of Dawson's mine?
Well, will they?!?"
Still interested? Want to read further? Then this next part will excite you to no end (if not, well, no point in continuing. Might I suggest you check out cracked.com?)
In The Off Chance That Anyone Has Gotten This Far, The Exciting News Is Thus:
Over the course of the next month or so I will be releasing the novel on this blog. To increase the suspense and drama of this momentous event, I shall do it in serial form - a new chapter every few days or so (or until I get bored and just post the rest of the chapters en masse).
