Down The Dusty Road - Chapter One

Chapter One
Well where do I start ? Well the only the way all these stories do. At the very beginning.

So how did it come to pass that someone who had never written anything of consequence in his life is sitting today in front of his PC starting to write a book about how he managed to take the world without a single shot being fired.

It all started very innocuously one night chatting to a friend of mine. This friend turned out to have a role of great significance to this tale but I’m getting ahead of myself.

So I got this message:

‘I wish you to write for me.’

‘I beg your pardon?’

‘I wish you to write for me!’

‘Who are you?’

‘I am the one you will much later refer to as Muse.’

‘But I don’t write. I can’t write!’

‘I say you can. Please try.’

So what can you say to that? I said this:

‘Ok let’s run with that. What sort of writing?’

‘A story about a man and a woman. That type of story.’

‘You mean a romance?’

‘Not quite. I’m looking for something meatier. A sexual adventure.’

Right here we have the story so far. I am contacted blind off the Internet and asked to do something I have never done before and about a subject I have never been tempted to try before.

I had to think about this very carefully and so said yes in the next breath. After all what could go wrong? It was going to be execrable so that it would die a quick death but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

So how was I going to go about it? I hate with a vengeance the porn approach. No style, no panache, NO PLOT.

Repairman arrives at door. Next frame 45 people doing hardcore in the shower.


No. This was going to have style and grace and elegance and appeal to women rather than men.
Women have asked me how it is that I know women’s minds and reactions so well. Because I want to. Because to attempt to do what I seem to have done, what I am told I have done I have to understand why?

The way I saw was to ask many questions and to listen closely to the answer and to really want to know why.

And so I did and have never stopped. Muse I have never met and never will in all probability. But I fully acknowledge the Shining One as my equal partner in this and she will benefit equally from the proceeds if this makes any money. But too soon for my dearest friend.

But I’m getting ahead of myself again. I asked Muse many questions. Many personal questions as it seemed to me that if I was to be writing a personal story I had to make it personal.

And so I started to write individual stories and I wish I had not destroyed them because from day one as I remember they weren’t half bad and off they went into cyberland and back came a comment and as I recall not once did I receive an adverse reaction of serious proportions.

And night after night I would write and write, crafting a new story and really getting into the various themes. I wasn’t too comfortable with the style of writing. I didn’t like the specific aspect but that’s what Muse wanted.

And I was exploring similar themes as I write now but from a different angle. I won’t say what they were as I may well revisit them.

And then disaster struck! Muse revealed that she didn’t want any more stories so I wrote another one to kill them off in the nicest possible way and dumped all the files.

Sometimes I can be such an idiot but it was the noble thing to do and I can outnoble anyone.
And so we stopped it there!

So what does everyone think? Is this good enough to publish? Would you buy it?
