Have finished two new stories:
“Hope Lake” (flash) – 400 words. A reworking of an old piece about the making of local legend, haunted lakes, and death as a process.
“Dream Home” (short story) – 1350 words. A short piece about climate disaster, rebirth, trauma, occult ritual, uncanny environments, and trauma again. This one was partly inspired by the image and tweet here from @NightlightPod, and they seem like a good place to follow so go give them a look.
Now for the fun part: selling them!
