A New Story
In 1997, the NOAA recorded an ultra-low and powerful frequency in a remote part of the ocean, a sound that could not have been made by anything known to man. It was never heard again since. It is now known as the bloop. I wonder what it could have been. This sparked an idea for a short story of mine. Actually, many things sparked ideas for this particular story.
The plot line goes something like this:
A young child, who has heard a drumming in the distance all her life, is inspired to go out in search of the source, because this particular sound only she can hear. So she sets out on a journey to find what it is, with the aid of a brother or sister and his/her sweetheart. When she finds the source, it is almost too much for her mind and heart to handle. It is a bigger secret than she could have ever imagined. She had been the “Chosen One,” the one that this creature has chosen to converse with. She goes back to the village with a message, a message that could tear her society apart on its foundations, and there is mayhem.
I will not give out what this creature is or the message, but I think this story might have a future, and I am excited to write it. When I finish, I will post it on this blog.
