Hey 2P START! fans, just wanted to let you know that I’ve written a short story that I wanted to share with you all. Since ending the comic, I haven’t had much of a creative outlet and over the last couple years, as I became more of a bookworm, I decided I wanted to take up writing fiction. This contest provided a good test for me as I had read the novel the contest was based on and having a deadline tends to keep me motivated (like our regular comic updates!). I know I have a long way to go before being a decent writer, but like we said when the first 2P START! comic went live, there’s always room for improvement.
Anyway, sci-fi fans may enjoy my little story. You shouldn’t need to read the original novel Half Way Home by Hugh Howey in order to understand it. The BookTrack setup allows for soundtracks to be added to a book, but to be honest, I’m not very good at that sort of thing, so I can’t say my soundtrack will blow you away. You can just mute the sound or if it’s really annoying, read the story on another site here. Any comments, ratings, and reads would help my chances in winning, but more important to me is just getting feedback, good or bad, so I can become a better writer.
Special thanks to Ray as well. He and Sarah were the only people that read parts of the draft as I wrote it and Ray provided some input on the cover as well.
