As well as my noir tale, Hard Boiled, I am also working on an urban horror tale called Terror In Seat 15B. I know, the title is very 50s B-movie-ish, but I promise the story is better than that -- not that there's anything wrong with that...
The idea was born last year when I discovered - on a flight to Paris - that I am a more nervous flyer than I had previously thought. I put it down to the natural imagination of a wannabe author, but my wife just calls me a wimp. Anyway, if I get a good story out of it I will consider it a success.
It centres around a married couple on a plane, and how the husband deals with the increasingly bad time he is having in the air. Again, I have focused a lot on the dialogue (and yes, I know, the narrative is where my concentration should be) and again, I am finding it a joy to write. 2000 words in (with probably another thousand waiting to be written) I should be finished this one by Christmas.
I'll keep you posted on its progress.
