The characters I like most represent one of two character archetypes: characters that either learn about some kind of personality trait about themselves, or, help serve as plot surrogates for some kind of greater theme. Not every character tends to be that lofty, but when I like the characters for more than just a witty line or aesthetic, it typically tends to be something deeper like that. How about John and Trishna in “The Story?”

I wrote a 60,000-word novel called A Story About Self-Confidence: What’s In A Name?, a month~long story at Eville Medical in the Sammohini Arc of “The Story.” I want to make a physical release of this book and sell digital copies that might be better formatted for PDF readers. For now, you can read it for free using the following links:
- PDF – 1.48MB
- Google Drive – includes first draft, second draft, final drafts with commentaries, along with other related materials to help aspiring writers or those interested in behind-the-scenes things.
Rough draft of the cover
‘The holiday season was supposed to be easy… I’m not ready for this…’
The computer repair technician was breathing shallowly as she approached the executive wing of Eville Medical, her stylish winter jacket keeping her warm, but perhaps too warm because she felt her forehead sweating.

The team’s recently-promoted computer repair technician had just returned from her first urgent ticket. It was a high-priority issue where a computer wouldn’t start for one of the doctors over in Oncology after multiple attempts. The team was short-staffed even without one of their team being out sick for a few days. Sammohini returned with a bit of a sweat to Hank’s desk as he wrapped up assigning out tickets.
“Thanks for stopping over, Sammohini.”

When Trishna and John meet for the first time, after years spent chatting online and over the phone, how do they recognize each other?

Is she really the person he’d been chatting with all these years? And, how can Trishna be so sure?

“Hey Hank, I’ve been trying to reach Tighearnán all day about something. Do you have any advice?”
“T-oh- y’mean Tear? Yeah… ya get one question per day with him. He’s, unfortunately, that busy. Oh, and lemme see the question, too.”
The senior-level computer repair technician, Hank, locked his computer and jumped out of his chair to see the computer screen of Sammohini, a junior-level computer repair technician that had joined his team some months back.

“OK-lure, when in this console window and connected to this server, simply type in this, this, this switch and… are you paying attention?”
The nervous computer repair technician broke her rhythm of looking up at the screen, looking down to write the esoteric command in her notepad, to look over at the more seasoned computer repair technician, Nils.
“Forget it. I’ll do it. I’ll paste console notes into the ticket when I close it.”
