Back to my original piece of work. This is my first attempt at writing a short story, and confirmed my suspicions that I’m too long-winded to carry out short stories.
It was meant to be a prequel to the Onmyouji Chronicles that I’ve tentatively named the Night Parade. Those who wonder what that refers to should check out my post on the Hyakki Yako.
The writing is rougher than I like and I’ll probably re-haul it again, but here it is:
“To restore the Kanda name, you have but one purpose: destroy the Night Parade.”
