#VignetteSeries – Unravelling

Author’s Note: This was an original first paragraph to The Eternals, though at the time the books were titled Decadent Gothic. I didn’t use it as I felt it made Jean appear lost, and being lost was something he had to grow into.

Life was an unravelling mystery by which I mean I unravelled. Unravelling was a talent not all possessed, but I’d perfected. Where some had beginnings, middles and ends, I had nondescript moments of unidentifiable hints. One day, I vowed to find a start and trace it to a conclusion. Today was not this day.

Thank you for reading

  1. I like both your comment on the character and the paragraph, Richard. But I can see why you didn’t use it. It was something you left for the reader to discover versus being told. 😀
