The Ten Thousand

No, not Greek mercenaries out to slay as many Persians as they can shake a spear at. I'm talking about 10,000 words for 'River of Bones.' It's been quite a while since I've written anything this long and it's an interesting feeling. I'm really not sure where this is headed; I think I can continue to extend it for a while, essentially writing one connected short story after another. Since I'm still excited by the character and situation and I see a lot more I can do, that's the direction I will continue to follow. Where it stops, nobody knows.

Congrats Jeff and enjoy the feeling.

Since I was expecting something Greca, have you read "The Ten Thousand" by Michael Curtis Ford?

No, it's one of those things that I've known about on the periphery, because my brain is filled with a bazillion random facts, but never really knew the story.
