Reason to Run
In case any of you were wanting to read about this last hitchhiking tour, even though there aren’t too many of you following this blog yet (I notice these things, ya know), I’ll begin posting pieces of it in a couple of days.
I’ve decided to cut the trip into fragments and make a series of stories out of it. Each story will be 1,500 – 2,000 words and they’ll each be called ‘sodes’ for no other reason than because ‘sode’ is shorter than ‘episode’ and sounds a whole lot more ‘new-wave’ and ‘edgy’. There should be about 20 – 25 sodes in all.
The title of the series will be ‘Reason to Run’ and each sode will show a point that plays into the overall theme of the series. Hopefully the points don’t go over everyone’s heads. And while each sode will be based on actual events that took place during the trip, I’m taking the liberty of eschewing all facts and writing in surrealism and pretty much doing whatever the hell I want with it. If you’d like, you can take these stories as things that actually happened or as things that didn’t happen.
