If you recall one year ago, I published a short story sequel to the beloved movie It’s a Wonderful Life called “Every Time a Bell Rings.” Unfortunately, my short story is quite irreverent and will never be as revered as the movie that spawned it. However, I was thrilled to see on Amazon that it had ratings.
It doesn’t bother me that one of the ratings is bad. In fact, I’m not surprised at the 1 star rating. If you believe that irreverence = bad writing, then you won’t like the story. If you also believe bad writing = bad writing, then you may not like the story. Anyway, it follows Clarence the angel as he gets called on the carpet for his actions during the movie. I’m working on another sequel, and I had hoped to have it ready by Christmas. I’ve enlisted some helpers to work on it to get it ready in time.
Let’s see how they’re doing.
Well, that’s not going to work. I could use Aritificial Intelligence to help write it. I saw this ad the other day.
Think of it. I could blog 10 times as much as I do now. I really don’t think anyone wants that, or that it’s in the best interest of our society. And it may turn out like this AI-generated story I blogged about. You may just have to wait for the new story. Will the wait be worth it? If you like dark, then it may be. This new story is dark, oh, so dark. I imagine the IAWL movie worshippers may not like this new sequel either. But it’s in my head and has to come out eventually, just like my novella about a parasitic twin running for President did.
