Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 28: Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray

Cordelia is a media student at The University of KwaZulu, Natal, in South Africa. Her competitive nature has put her ahead of her peers, and she is in line for a scholarship to work as a junior reporter for a local news network. She is building her résumé in a rather dangerous way, and expects to knock her competition out of the game. Sometimes things aren’t always as easy as you’d like them to be, no matter how hard you work. This story is dedicated to all the people (writers, editors, readers, critics, friends and family) who have and continue to support me (and sometimes chuck bricks at me) on my own battle for publication. Thank you, you know who you are… (This story also features The Guild Master’s General) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

  1. Second story of yours I’ve read (I’m working through WordPress’s suggestions of posts to read), and it’s better than the first. So many plot twists in such a small space. Such vivid characters. Such great dialog. Such a terrifying couple of moments with the shark.

    Wow.

    Okay, let me catch my breath before I go on to number 3.

  2. Cheryl, I don’t know if you’ve ever read any Nick Bantock, or if you’re familiar with the whole Griffin & Sabine story, (and if not, you should definitely check them out, darling!) but what you’ve got going on here would lend itself very well to a non-traditional type of publication. How I would love to see your art and writing collected in an actual box, with each story collected in a series of postcard type cards — a tactile version of this internet experience. That would be just lovely!

    1. I love the way you think, Helena. I’ve printed postcards but have only distributed them at small readings in the past. At the moment the stories are growing organically and somehow by printing them as a collection they would be fixed and incomplete. One day the stories may be complete enough to bind together, but until then I’m working on getting the ms published. This digital age gives so many possibilities. It’s very liberating and exciting having the privilege to participate. Thank you so much.

      1. Oh, I see the possibility of creating a subscription service, where someone owns the box, and receives new cards in the mail as they are published (like that old recipe card service, remember that? Ha! I’m getting old) That way it’s never really complete

Keep it alive...
