"The storms come and go, the waves crash over head, the big fish eat the little fish, and I keep on paddling." Lord Varys, from A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin I'm using short stories to develop many of the characters in the fictional world of what I've come to call The Final Nights series. I've been writing about these characters for some time and have decided to put them into the public eye to see how they play with others. Feel free to chime in with thoughts of your own... I've made a short film about two of the characters and it's doing pretty well with film festivals. If you're interested in the characters, I'll share the video (online).
