As you can see, I haven’t been idle during the quiet period between the years and used the opportunity to write a new story or rather to revise an old short story, edit, format and publish it, because the original version of Demolition was written almost twenty years ago now.
I must say, I was surprised how well the story still held up after all those years. Of course it required extensive rewriting, but not nearly as extensive as e.g. The Hybrids, the first skeleton draft of which was written during the same period.
So what’s Demolition about? It’s a short and bittersweet story about an old house, three children and men in hard-hats.
The stately mansion stood tall for one hundred years. But after the death of its last owner, the old house has been neglected and forgotten, its garden overgrown by rose bushes.
When three children stumble upon the old house, it gains a new lease on life, doubling for Sleeping Beauty’s castle in the children’s imagination. But unbeknownst to the children, the old house is under threat, for real estate developers have no use for enchanted fairy tale castles…
