Let the Writing Begin! - The Outside
So I finally starting writing this short story for school.
Tentatively titled The Outside, the story is about a character named Adam who lives in a metallic prison of darkness. Literally, as in....no light. However, triangular shaped holes have begun to appear in the ceiling, allowing light to punch through into the tunnels. Adam is tasked by his captors with the job of patching the holes and preventing the light from returning. The light stabs at their eyes and becomes a growing problem. Eventually, Adam discovers that their might be more to their existence than the constant darkness of the tunnels. Their just might be an Outside world--filled with light, filled with pain, and filled with glory.
Today I got a measly 500 words but it's a start. And that's all I really needed.....a start.
So this is my new project. Thoughts?
The allegory is, obviously, very easy to figure out. But I think it's gonna be an awesome story!
I could use titles too if anyone's got any ideas.
And, if you're wondering why I've been updating so frequently lately, check out the earlier posts of this project!
