Verse Four of the Metzgerhund Retreat series is almost finished.
- The band hosts a rap-off at the beach. Writing lyrics for this has tasked me to actually listen when my son plays his rap CDs at volumes a metal head like me can appreciate.
- A park visitor is going out of his way to do ‘favors’ for the band without having been asked. What is his motivation? Let’s just say I’ve been reading a few books about the Mafia.
- Billy (the main character and band keyboardist) has several conversations with Jason (the band’s drummer and Billy’s ‘Left Hand Man’) about the proper way of dealing with bad things that happen to the band.
Once I tighten up a few more bolts, I’ll be shipping it out to my critiquers. I’m curious to see if they enjoy reading this story as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
