The House off Route J

I’ve posted another short story, this one entitled The House off Route J. It’s the second story I wrote for the Great PlanetCrap Writing Experiment, which I’m enjoying quite a bit. One short story a month is about the right pace.

That being said, I’m not really sure how much I liked this story. It’s long, mainly because I wanted some exercise in creating a plot, but that doesn’t bother me. It could be longer, in fact, and I’m considering turning it into my novel for National Novel Writing Month come October. But this story seems kind of sterile despite the copious use of descriptive language. The characters just don’t seem to feel real. As one reviewer in the writing club mentioned, they just don’t sound like who they’re supposed to be. I’ll be addressing this flaw in my story for Round 4, which I’ll probably post the first week of July.

Anyhoo, please feel free to read The House off Route J and send me any feedback you have. I’m quite open to it.
