Well, it's not the What if of mine you used, but I'm working on the old farmer picture perfect, at least the character parts, I still gotta figure out the plot parts, so it skips over a lot of stuff like "The missing man, William McGovern, …" since I haven't quite placed my pen on the mystery behind the mystery yet...

Hmm, looks like my subconscious might be five steps ahead of my conscious. The missing character (William McGovern - who's been missing for over 20 years, and who my mind insisted was the guys name) turns out to be mentioned in one of my short stories from his childhood: http://www.bishopta.com/writing/Fall.htm

I think this short story might just be the mystery behind the mystery.

Am I becoming too influenced by King if I'm already subconsciously tying all my stories to the same world?

Hmm, found another interesting connection to it (note the opening for a SS about Old Man Chase in http://www.wordtrip.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6320 ). This might become a series os SS that are connected OR the start of a T. Allan Bishop world...

And I also realized that Carl is the name of a corrupt PI with limits in my murder mystery (Prick from a Black Rose's Thorn).

As long as you don't make it too blatantly obvious like King did in some of his stories. Some times he tried too hard.

I just realized my post in my personal blog about me writing a story should have gone in this blog, so I'm dusting off the massive number of cobwebs here to repost here:

So, I actually wrote a short story yesterday! I posted a description of it and a little of my dilemma of it in this entry in my blog: http://anblicksanamorphosis.blogspot.co ... lines.html
