It’s time for ‘Me Me Me Monday’ at QueerSciFi. I’ve just claimed victory for July Camp NaNoWriMo with an extended draft of my story, ‘On the Other Side of the Mask’.
Trying to seize a little freedom in the grim city of Paradise, two church choir wards choose the names of Byron and Shelley for themselves. For a name is the only thing which belongs to them in a colorless word, where all light and life is gathered by the pale lords and offered to their Goddess. Byron and Shelley are determined, though, to belong to themselves and each other. Through their song, they cry out their defiance to the heavens. The heavens are watching, though. The heavens are hungry.
