What do the film adaptions of the Harry Potter books, the Twilight books and the The Hunger Games books have in common? Yes, they are all film adaptions, smart-arse. But apart from that, their respective final part has been split up for cinema. Sure, later books in a series may tend to becoming longer and longer due to an expanding universe, and at least the first aspect (becoming longer) is the case with all three tales.

I am aware that the last story (or in this case, chapter) took its sweet time to find its way to the World Wide Web. Therefore I’m eager to re-establish a certain flow in my postings.

It had never been my intention to create a blog as such, but I still landed at WP because of its popularity and its “low-threshold-ness”. What I had in mind was to create a base camp for my stories, from where they could travel the vastness of the Internet. Continue reading
Actually, this is the 101st post I’ve created on this site. The 100th was The Writer, kind of fitting. Now, 100 posts in almost five years doesn’t sound much, but the overwhelming majority of them are short stories or story chapters, a fact which puts the numbers in perspective.
And I already know how to celebrate this milestone — with post no. 102, of course!
