Small Realities

Inside the mind of Lance Schonberg

Thorvald’s Wyrd

Thorvald’s Wyrd is a fantasy story told entirely in drabble-length (100-word) scenes.  My original plan called for 100 scenes, but the tale grew a little in the telling and the final count  came in at 129 .  Not quite as nice a numerical conjunction, but I’d have to chop too much to make it fit the original framework.

This is the index page.  From here you can get to every scene I’ve posted so far.  Thorvald’s Wyrd is complete.
