buffalo-runFinally it is ready for release, my new short story titled “Buffalo Run.” It’s a story set in Yosemite Valley in a dystopian future (don’t worry, no teenagers!). The idea came while going through stream of consciousness exercises for my screenwriting class earlier in the year. The exercise started off by finding a picture in Pinterest and then setting a timer for ten minutes. At the start of the clock we were instructed to write using the picture as a starting point without stopping and without editing. It’s meant to develop the creative side of your brain. What flowed from a picture of half dome was a random story about two women running a marathon in Yosemite Valley amongst¬†genetically modified buffalo that craved human flesh. It was not quite something I usually write about but the story stuck with me after the class was over and I decided to write it as a short story. I had it edited by Elisabeth Kaufman over at Writing Refinery and proofread by Jessica Nelson at Rare Bird Editing. I had my daughter illustrate the cover as I wanted a vector art type of look for it. I put it up at Amazon for $0.99. As a gift to my readers, I wanted to put up a complimentary pdf version here on the web site. I hope you enjoy it. If the mood strikes you, perhaps you could leave a review on Amazon?
