I first purchased the name The Invisible People Series as a domain name in 2012. I never got further but never let the domain name go and never stopped thinking about these characters.
I first purchased the name The Invisible People Series as a domain name in 2012. I never got further but never let the domain name go and never stopped thinking about these characters. In the beginning I just limited myself to career fields. There is a very necessary person in each business structure and this person is often overlooked or invisible. Janitors, gardeners, shampoo girls, secretaries, grad students and the like. As time passed, I came to realize there are invisible people in families, invisible countries in the world and people who feel invisible no matter what everyone else tells them. I have been inspired by my Dear Friend, Bridgette White to do the short story a week for a year challenge. Some of these stories may make their way into one of the 6 Invisible people books as I plan to tweak the prompts to involve an invisible person whenever possible. I got a little behind (already) because of the trip to San Jose for my Mother-in-law’s funeral, but I am almost done with Story 1. Thank you for taking the time to join me on this journey. I am hoping for feedback as you read what I write. Tell me what you like, what you don’t like and what you want to see more of because it all helps me to grow as a writer.
“We are never invisible to the people who matter, no matter what the voice inside our head says.”
Outstanding topic. I cant wait to read these stories!
The stories start tomorrow.
Penny — so good – l thoroughly ennoyed this first installment and can’t wait to read more.
This is Fantastic Penny I love your websit and can’t wait to read more of your stories.😊
Keep them coming ! I can’t wait to read more !
I enjoyed this story so much. I didn’t realize for the longest time where they were. A little side note: my mother was an opera singer whose career never took off; she was a single mom raising two kids and so food came first. From time to time she actually played piano in real bars and cocktail lounges, so the first line pulled me right in.
Thanks Elizabeth. I didn’t intend for her to be part of the “invisible people” until I got into it and realized no one could see her but the piano player. Then who is he anyway? An angel? St Peter? A heavenly gate keeper helping us throw off the guilt that keeps us from entering true joy? (AKA Heaven) Things to think about and write about as the year progresses. I welcome all of your thoughts and suggestions. Stay well.
This is a wonderful idea, Penny! Looking forward to reading your stories.
