The Kekionga blog is almost four years old now, and it has grown and developed in many interesting ways. Among other things it has turned me back into a photographer, which I consider a rather amazing gift from the universe.
But the most surprising turn of events for me was discovering that I was using this blog as both an inspiration to write fiction and a medium for sharing it. This happened almost without me knowing it, but I moved pretty rapidly from picture+snippet posts that were as much about the illustration as the prose to full on short stories, culminating in this fall’s Spider Time which ended up at 13,000 words.
There are now quite a few complete stories on A Cartoonist in Kekionga. Last year I started the FICTION! tag for fiction posts, but it’s become clear that a simple tag is hardly enough to keep track of all the stories, particularly the longer serials that evolve over multiple posts.
So I’ve just added a Kekionga FICTION! page to the main information bar above. Consider it a combined index, table of context and links page. You can read about each story and link to it directly from the FICTION! page, and I will add an entry each time I finish a new one. I hope this makes it easier, and more fun, to read about all the goings on in Kekionga.
Thanks to all our readers for another great year of blogging here in the Indiana of the Mind. This blog will continue.
