Wayne Gray


There's this album by "The Decemberists", and it's called The Hazards of Love. The first time I heard it, I didn't know it was an epic. It's a story, and it's told from song one to seventeen, in order.

The title fits as well as a tailored glove. It's not all good, and it even ends in ... well, nevermind. I'll let you listen to find out.

Regardless, a couple of days ago, I had this scene slam into my head. If you want to read the unedited, raw scene, it's here. In it, we watch someone suffer through one of the hazards of love, and it's not exactly pretty.

Still, people go on. Some are forever changed, but they go on. And from that scene, I've outlined an entire story, and titled it The Hazards of Love.

Loving is a risk, after all. But if we're brave enough to face the Hazards of Love, maybe we can win something wonderful.

My outline is almost done. Then the real work starts.

I cannot wait!

It's an amazing process for a writer to have an idea take hold insistently in his/her head. Sometimes the idea morphs into something wonderful, sometimes it fizzles. 

I have a really good feeling this will be something wonderful.

Look forward to reading it.

Me too. :) 

Edit: I’ve decided not to take a sneak peek and instead read the finished product. I know it’s going to be good.
