By Way of Introduction
Before you start reading this, get all befuddled, and then shoot me e-mails asking what the hell, you should know the genesis of the Brigid and Greg fictionlets. The truth of the matter is, they started as an experiment. I’d been out of the writing game for a while and wanted some quickie practice to regain my chops. So I started writing short little vignettes and posting them to my blog — not really expecting much, mind you, just something fun to pass the time.
What I got was a tremendous reaction from my readers. People started asking all sorts of questions about Brigid and Greg, who they were and what was the nature of their relationship. This in turn inspired me to turn around and write more about them, which generated more interest, and so on. What had started as a pair of names and a snarky attitude, turned into a real, if disjointed, long-term narrative told in tiny bites.
