Striking Distance

"Broken Rocks" is cruising along and passed the 7500 word mark this morning. The mayhem has begun and now, for the first time in the story, there are actual broken rocks littering the landscape instead of metaphorical ones. Both of the main characters are great fun to write about when they go full force into bad temper mode. The evil part of me greatly enjoys creating fictional destruction and seeing what I can do to top myself in each fight scene. The set of stories I'm currently working on allows for that in large quantities. Looks like another couple thousand words or so will wrap this one up and then I have to take stock of the situation and see what I can come up with for the next challenge.

Every time I open my iGoogle page and see Striking Distance, I think of Bruce Willis as river cop. Sorry, but just had to tell you.

I'm sure your dialog and plotting will be much better than that movie.

Hey, I kinda liked that completely implausible movie.
