This one started from the artwork for the cover, of course.
I was browsing through Dreamstime the other night and ran across this piece of art and knew instantly it had to be a Poker Boy story. And I had the title instantly as well. Weird how that happens.
No idea what the story was about, but knew it was a Poker Boy story.
So yesterday (September 28th in the A.M.), when I finished posting the previous story, I took a short break and then sat down and started this one. I think I got about a thousand words into it before calling it quits and going to watch some television before going to bed.
I got up (still the 28th), worked on some estate stuff and at the storage unit that gets moved on Thursday, then came home and went back to work on the story. After a nap and dinner I finished it, took a break to watch the new NCIS and Craig, then did the cover and wrote this and got it launched up on Kindle, Pubit, and Smashwords (I will on Smashwords later in the day…they are down for some reason).
So a story from the cover art this time. Great fun. I might have to do that more often this fall. And two stories in two days, basically. I’ll be starting another shortly, trying to keep this daily streak going for a few more days until I head up to Whitehorse in Canada to teach.
