I was just reading Ian Fleming’s “Octopussy and Other Short Stories”. Particularly I was enjoying the short story “Quantum of Solace”. I was really taken with the format.
The story is a tale narrated by the governor of Nassau to James Bond after they had both retired from an evening’s dinner party.
I though that it might be a good format for telling a story… a story about a characters, a senior police inspector with certain ‘proclivities’ and an unsuspecting young female officer who shall suddenly find herself wanting to be a participant in these activities.
I returned to the car with two fresh coffees. I gave one to the young patrol officer I selected to sit with me for this stake out. She was a rather attractive brunette from the precinct near the park. We were in our car in the park watching the western approach to the historical museum, with lieutenant Cromwell and his partner sitting in a car on third avenue watching the east side.
Officer Robin Capri was the first name at the top of my list for this assignment. She has a perfect heart shaped ass and a healthy chest. Her flowing mane of black hair frame her sharp Italian features.
“Do you have an idea how long we’ll be watching out here?” She asked me as I handed her a coffee.
“We’ll be here all night if need be. Sargent Taylor’s shift will take over from us at five am. Though I’m expecting that if there is going to be another heist it will happen well before then.”
“If you don’t mind me asking sir, why did you request me for this assignment?”
“I need somebody young with a good knowledge of the layout of the park and someone who has good eyes. Your captain recommend you.”
As she sipped her coffee, I watched those eyes if hers. They are large and moist with the light of a full moon reflecting in them. Then I lowered my eyes to those lips of hers. I imagined them wrapped around my throbbing erection. I think that officer Capri will be perfect my other special assignment.
Its been a long time away from the desk. A rough-hewn path gets overgrown and the next thing you know, you’re stuck in the thickets and thistles. Well its about time to blow some of the dust off around here and get those sleeves rolled up and see what other clichés can let loose around here.
So, I’m still churning out Limericks. Now a Third volume, aptly named Naughty Boy’s Book of Limericks Volume 3 has been released at Smashwords. I’ve finally finished reading Clive Cussler’s novel Serpent. This is the first of the NUMA novels with Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala. I enjoyed it and it makes me want to step back further in Mr Cusslers writing life, and read The Mediterranean Caper to see and example of his earlier writing.
I find it interesting to see how an author develops over time. I know that at my extremely primitive stage of creative writing that here will be quite the learning curve. When I read authors like Stephen King and Clive Cussler I’m usually reading current novels where these authors are well honed in their writing skills.
But right now I’m reading my way through The Best American Mystery Stories (2014 edition). I’m interested in cutting my teeth on some erotic short fiction pieces focusing on the mystery genre. I’m hoping to have an vignette ready in a couple of days and I’m sure to post it here first.
In the meantime… checkout the fresh verses… #PunAlert
So, I’ve finished reading Andy McDermott Secret of Excalibur and found it to be an enjoyable read. Well paced action with an intriguing story and a continuation of the character development. In this case we find out more about Eddie’s backstory and it helps to flesh him out more.
As for me.. well I’ve still been crafting those limericks and posting them to Facebook groups. Head on over and check them out as they are not always the same as the ones that get listed here on Fridays. Yes, some limericks are posted only in the Facebook Humor groups.
As for the outstanding content here, well every cloud has a silver lining. Due to a change in my employment status (terminated I think they called it), I will have a bit more time on my hands to post some new content, and get some old projects out of dry-dock.
