So I've been out of action for a while, waiting for a response from my publisher whilst chewing my nails to stubs... so in the meantime I've decided to write a fun short story series for my blog.
I'd like to introduce you to;
I guess I realised I was different when my dead budgie wouldn't stay dead. Don't get me wrong, I loved that bird, I didn't want him to die, but when he did, I just wanted him to stay that way.
It was bad. I was fourteen and in addition to sprouting pubic hair and volcanic acne, I also developed a bad case of ‘Budgie Undeadicus’, an unsightly rotting blue budgie that wouldn’t leave me side, or rather, my shoulder.
I’m Cory Richards, by the way, but mostly people call me Gory, a nickname that stuck after the non-dead budgie incident, and this is my story…
I am just writing this for pleasure, Gory is a sub-character in my latest WIP, who I think deserved his story told. The first instalment of his story should be posted on the 9th of July 2017 - I hope you like it.
