What Is #Headquarters

What is Headquarters?

Well I’m glad you asked little person I just made up.
Headquarters is one of my current projects, a collection of flash fictions that all link in together to create an overall story.

 

Does that not create world building issues?

Yes. Yes it does. I’m just trying to bumble my way through them and smile as readers point them out to me.

 

Are you not already snowed under with work?

Once again, yes, yes I am. Right now I should be pulling together a presentation on Warren Hastings for Eighteenth Century Politics In Britain, but anyone who knows me, knows that will do nothing to prevent me from trying to add one more thing to the ‘to do’ list.

 

Are you going to annoy readers by removing chapters and completely changing them and therefore the plotline?

No. For once. If you decide to read the current segments up in my gallery then remember they are not designed to be polished, fully thought out story-lines. I’m treating them as a writing exercise to hone my character development and writing skills. [For fun should also be included in that sentence.]

 

So it’s all one big story then?


Sort of. I’ve now split Headquarters into two individual story-lines. ‘Central Command’ which is set somewhere in the middle of Europe and ‘Safe Haven’ which is set in the Midland, England. Granted this is quite a bit in the future after a war has completely reshaped all the previously organised territories.

She’s currently working on her first novel ‘Darkened Daughter’ and attempting to put together a collection of poetry in the hopes of submitting to publication in 2020. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University, enjoys judo at least twice a week, and tries to attend poetry events around the Midlands. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry. Her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and two of her poems were included in the DVerse Poets Pub Publication ‘Chiaroscuro’ which is available for purchase on amazon. More recently her poem ‘Until The Light Gets In‘ was accepted and published at The Drabble and her poem ‘Newborn’ was published by Ink Sweat & Tears. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and has hosted a number of guest bloggers here on Writing and Works.

  1. We all need an HQ and Cent Com – gives us the illusion we’re in control …. of something ….

    Very clever interview with yourself. Love it!

      • We certainly do it in our head enough, don’t we? I’ve got a few recorded to post myself if I ever need them during writer’s block 🙂

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
