The first story I’ve ever co-authored is now complete. In June, the first part, “Earth Camp,” posted on Lightning Quick Reads.
Scott Harpstrite and I tell the story of a futuristic Earth where a weapon destroyed most of the Earth’s atmosphere. 100 years later, a team of explorers are sent by the Solar Council to investigate Earth, look for survivors of the war, and test the planet’s habitability. What they discover rewrites their understanding of history.
For December’s Lightning Quick Reads post, we conclude the story with “A Gift to Save the Earth.”
With a newly constructed time travel machine, the explorers from the Solar Council and some refugees from Earth embark on a mission to travel back in time and stop the weapon from ever destroying the Earth’s atmosphere. But can they change history?
Since I always want my ability as a writer to grow, I often experiment with writing styles. For the first time, I tried writing a story with someone else. In my June post for Lightning Quick Reads, with the theme of ‘Camp,’ I’ve coauthored a story with my cousin, Scott Harpstrite. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but other than some ideas I wouldn’t have come up with myself, the story seem, in my opinion, to have an extra layer of depth. Check it out and let me know what you think.
