Something to pass the time

DebE —  October 4, 2011 — Leave a comment

I just enjoyed reading this short story as a reading assignment on YouWriteOn and thought I would share. It’s a little over 2,500 words, so it doesn’t take long to read, and it’s pleasant. Personally, I love the bit about riding the bike with the stack of eggs on the back.

In the mean time, I thought I would share another song that I like to listen to while writing…

And, shh, here is a fan-vid I made using the same song:

My story started off being based on the characters, Jimmy & Lou, from The Young Riders, but they have evolved into their own beings, now.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
