I hope you liked this one. There's not really a lot to it but I wrote it for two reasons. Firstly, I wanted to do a reverse of the usual perspective of this sort of story. Secondly, I wanted to write the character again, Eliza and Oliver were the subjects of a story from last year called "Eliza is a Witch" I have vague plans to write a series of short stories about Eliza that will turn out to have a plot. She exists in the same universe as my novel (and the sort-of-in-progress sequel), and so I thought it would be a good way to keep putting things on the blog while staying in the same world as the longer things I'm writing.
So, I hope you like her. She's a horrible, horrible character but she's fun to write. Probably because she's so horrible.
I'm moving house next week, which is exciting. I was at Sheffield Doc/Fest (coverage at Fohnhouse here) last week so there's not been much fiction happening but this will change.
And here are The Magnetic Fields with Abigail, Belle of Kilronan.
