Ok folks. If you’ve been waiting for me to post Putting on a Hit. I just did. But now it’s named FLIGHT 1950. These things happen when you write – a Working Title so to speak.
STOP READING NOW – if you haven’t read the short story yet.

I’m serious… because what comes next is a…
Ok. So for those of you following along, what has become FLIGHT 1950 is close to my heart. A cathartic tale to rid my soul of some misplaced anger. This is a completely fictional tale, seasoned lightly with moments of truth – the seed of all good writing.
I really contemplated how I was going to tackle this tale. This murder – I thought was going to take place. After all – I entitled it Putting On A Hit – as is hire a hitman. I really enjoyed writing the beginning. It was good for me to retrace the moments that went by so fast. Then it wasn’t. It became a bit too painful to relive with each re-read. I recall how confusing a time it was for me. To understand what was going on and why I felt so uneasy – all along. I mean, if your folks divorce, and life was good – the little kid in all of us wants to see our folks together. So my dad remarrying was hard on the little kid in me, but nothing I as an adult couldn’t handle. It’s just that… I had the worst foreboding feeling. My guts screaming at me that something wasn’t right – and no matter what – there was nothing I could do about it. C’est la vive. That’s life.
But that’s not right so I write. I write to right the wrongs.
Or so I thought.
Like all my tales, they start as an idea in my mind that my subconscious somehow works out. Then one day I sit before my computer and let it all out. It’s amazing truly.
I’ve been reading and re-reading these 28 pages. Wondering – is this enough? Will my Pulp Fans like this? I wanted to give you more – but I also didn’t have more in me. Sure I dreamt of getting even with that women, but when it comes down to it – do I want that blood on my hands? So to speak – even if this is all fiction. The answer was no. I did not. But I really liked my tale and I needed to end it. So I let my mind work this one out.
Of course Vendetta was part of it all along.
(For those of you who don’t know – Vivian Domino – aka Vendetta blank is my reoccurring character – to read her debut click here: PART 1: http://wp.me/p1CgO3-6G)
As for the name change. The flight was natural. I was on it too much and that’s where I did my best thinking. Jerry really is a peach!
I hope you guys enjoy this short story. Could I revisit it one day? Maybe – we’ll see.
But when I asked the universe – is this story complete, I realized that 13 chapters and 28 pages were somehow perfect.
So there you have it. FLIGHT 1950 – do tell me what you think!
Thanks for reading. Happy Tales!
