This is the second piece of fictional writing I submitted for the 'Start Writing Fiction' course. This is a lot more cynical and jaded than how I try to write or how I try to carry myself as a human being. However, it's important to experiment with different voices when writing.
This piece was written as part of a course I am taking on the FutureLearn online study platform: Start Writing Fiction. As a means of getting feedback, I have decided to publish my first piece for this course on my blog. This short story and the characters in it could be the basis for something longer. I haven't decided yet where this will go. Any constructive feedback is welcome!
