#OneLineWednesday | Weeping Ash A Short Story

“I knew the moment I laid eyes on him, everything I thought I knew would be drop-kicked out the nearest window.”


“Weeping Ash” was the first short story I’d written in years – I’d met Rockstar perhaps 6 months earlier. I’d moved to Atlanta to start college in the fall, and took a job at a music distributor – the name of which escapes me – where Van Temple of The Producers was my boss. I’m not even kidding. He was great (and I’m sure he still is – I haven’t talked to him since I left that job, and he probably doesn’t remember me at all… )

Anyway, as I recall, that first line above got stuck in my head for weeks. I had no idea where the story was going, or if I even had a story to run with. I just let it ruminate in the back of my head until the rest of the story came tumbling out. It ultimately served as the jumping off point for every script I wrote in college – both play and film. I’m rather fond of it. 🙂

Click here for purchase links – it’s a steal at $.99 (also, BN currently shows $1.99 – I’m waiting for the price to update – so if you need the epub, pick it up from Smashwords for the time being. EDITED to add that BN is now showing the correct price. KJ)
