A Tomb in Every Tree – The Process
**SPOILERS BELOW. If you have not read the story and want to be (hopefully) surprised, come back to this when you’re done.**
The title for this story came from the Lord Byron poem, Don Juan, specifically Canto XIII. Honestly, no clue where the Korean War background came from, but I ran with it. I’ve also been taking a recent class on Depth in Writing (HIGHLY recommended, as are all of the WMG courses I’ve taken), so I tried to put some of that into practice here. This was another story that seemed to move along for me.
My favorite quote from the daily journal:
I think it’s good enough. Maybe not perfect, but I don’t have time for perfect (no one does).
