Writing So Far

I’m reading news articles on the latest shootings in Buffalo by a racist who wanted his fifteen minutes of fame plastered over the airwave and social media platforms. Suffice to say as I described in A Man’s Passion, when a man’s passion is hate toward his fellow human beings, there is no changing him.

I finished my book which I renamed Building A Mystery. It is in the first-person point of view of both the protagonist and the antagonist. I asked my beta reader to tell me if the format I originally set up is workable or should I move the story around? I haven’t heard back yet.

I started a new story with new characters and different plot I am calling Boomer Ang. It’s written in the point of view of the dog, Boomer. His owner, Master Bob is shot by an unknown person and he is adopted by the police detective working that case. Obviously, other movies come to mind such as Hooch. Obviously, I will work the whole plot line in a different mode. It’s a challenge to not repeat what is going on in this story—also haven’t decided on a short story or novel concept—to both keep it interesting and original.

Boomer is a mutt as he describes himself, a big dog whose long tail wags back and forth hence why he thinks he is called Boomer Ang. He has a lot of adjustments to make including being the low dog in an already overcrowded pack of four other large dogs. I’m sure the adventures will keep the reader’s interest piqued.

Boomer is also opinionated in how he views us humans. In one scene he wonders why Master Bob’s girlfriend wants to go walkies after discovering his dead body. I will use many such incidents as a way of exposing our human foibles. I’m sure most of you my loyal readers will get a chuckle or two from that.

Well, it’s about time to watch the news and see if another racist or dysfunctional human has decided to kill a bunch of people because of who he is and who they are.
