LOU. What to say about LOU?
LOU is one of my original short stories that was spur of the moment. It revolves around an ex-firefighter who escapes Hell on Earth only to find it out in space. It’s a poorly written sci-fi story, because, well, Lou has no idea what anything is or does.
I went and revisited this story recently in order to create a recording of it for my Youtube channel. Rereading through it brought me laughter and joy, reminding me of how much I originally loved this character and the antics he gets up to. With that in mind, I’ve decided to write him a full novella! I don’t know how long it will be— maybe 30k words, maybe more—but I’m letting LOU lead the way and tell the story he wants to tell. It’s full of sarcasm, randomness, violence, and a couple of sci-fi references from some of my favorite shows. And in a way, it’s freeing. I’m not worried about making every word perfect, and I’m not focusing on telling the most amazing story. LOU is just LOU, and I write whatever makes me laugh.
I’ll bring an update when the story is about to launch on Amazon—it’ll be free to read, because I just want people to laugh as much as I do writing it—but for now, I hope you look forward to what’s to come!
(LOU also recently got a rebranding. Hooray for LOU!)
