Finches (Short Story Ver.)

Worked on editing the original Finches tonight. I didn't originally write this as part of a series. The stories that came after it, Rahim (Finches II), and the as yet incomplete Finches III and IV, have ended up being framed in more of the correct sequence than the original. I've deleted the original dream sequences that started the frame -- I think they're trying too hard. This meant I had to reorganize the Darwin and Quranic quotes that made up the rest of the frame to accommodate the three missing segments. I rather like the quotes that have taken their place. There's a particular quote I like, from Surah Al Isra, Ayat 31. I'd tell you what it is, but that would have serious ramifications for just about everything.

I've been waiting to hear about Finches from IGMS for 5 about months now. I did send them a query a couple of days ago, but it doesn't look like anyone's answering. So I'm taking the initiative to send it to Holy Horrors, a publication I do want to try with the story. With my luck, I'll suddenly get my reject from IGMS two weeks later or rather like that.

You're being a good hammy. I've been so bad about song writing and composing.

PS. You keep changing your layout! I really like the current one. I think I have a strange affinity for the grim reaper or something like that.

No, no. I've been a bad, awful hammy. I haven't written more than 200 words since a month ago!

I have indeed been changing my layout. As a friend said about this one: "Look Afi! They drew YOU!"
