Discover how when all seems lost for Janey she realises at last her salvation… but not how you might think.
More About The Story
I don’t know why this particular story came to mind but it did. In a single download one Saturday night, or early Sunday morning rather, say 2am, the entire personality of Janey came to me.
I’ve no experience working or living with drug addicts and I’ve no personal history of being strung out (although the few persians did feature socially when I was a younger man), so it was a bit of a surprise.
It felt like I knew her. For some reason it felt real, like it was someone’s life. So I knew I had to write it.
Now I need to build the story, the characters, the scene, the emotion of it. Which will take some time, not to mention creating drafts, editing, proofreading and so on.
In The Meantime
In the meantime spare a thought for Mary Jane and those who live their lives on the street, addicted to drugs and under the abuse of those who would take advantage of them.
We don’t know their past, what dreadful things they’ve encountered and suffered. Kindness comes for free, so consider giving some away… 🙂
