Getting to Know You!

9/17/2019 9:00:00 AM BY Dan Gray


Working on marketing before finishing my novel may sound like putting the carton before the eggs but you write the words when they come. Even if they never get used. I’ve been working on one of my novel-sized stories for too many years so I’m attempting to spread my work as much to little. As a musician, I often get inspired to write through music and word. Here is the latest, one of many scribbles for a possible book trailer script, back cover or other. 
 
Born on Earth, thrust through space 400 years into the future in a cryo pod. Now, the soon honored High Gambit toils along with his fellow Trojan clan miners gutting the giant asteroid Galena for the pirate lords unknown treasure. They fight to escape their task master’s schemes while discovering the mysteries of their prison home. Like a comet’s tail whispers of dome are spread through the asteroid’s vanes of mining camps.
 
I’m a long driving member, (meaning I drive a long way to the meetings) of the West Michigan Word Weavers chapter since our startup writing in the rare genre (for our group) of far future, far space science fiction. I enjoy the close fellowship of Word Weaver writers and special help in critiques. I have a couple short stories published in our West Michigan Word Weavers Anthologies.
