Starting next week, I’m going to tray a bit of a literary experiment here on the Blog.  Introducing, “The City, A Story in 140 Characters!”

I’ve always liked comic strips, and particularly webcomics as form of short serialized storytelling.  I’ve wanted to do one, but I can’t draw worth sour apples.  I was blown away by Jake Bible’s novel Dead Mech, and ever since I first listened to the podcast version, I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a longer story broken up into 100 word parts.  This is my first attempt.

Here’s the twist:  Each Drabble is going to focus on a different character, for a total of one-hundred and forty.  Can I tell a coherent story broken up into so many viewpoints, in so short a wordcount? Even I don’t know yet, but I can’t wait to find out!

Come back every weekday for a new drabble, a new character, and a new look at the mysterious world of The City!
