Opening Rewrite Instagram Challenge


It was the smell that made him do it.
As Xavier's stepped out of a Manhattan office building he owned onto the nearly abandoned sidewalk of Madison Avenue, he adjusted his N95 mask.
"Are you all right?" Heath, his best friend, asked. They walked six feet apart, even though they were immune viruses. Setting a good example was important.

Thanks to Patricia Josephine on Instagram for inspiring this post.
The opening lines are rewritten for social distancing.

Theme Reveal #AtoZChallenge 2020 badge

On my previous blog, I posted about my author brand. It started after I read a book that included the subject. Every month I would do my goal check-in posts. And every month I'd notice that I didn't focus enough or evenly on what I feel is my author brand. So, for the April A to Z Challenge 2020, I'm going to focus on my author brand topics each week.
  • Characters and Settings (Mondays)
  • Speculative Fiction (Tuesdays -- includes a WEP Flash Fiction post)
  • Reading and then writing book reviews (Wednesdays)
  • About J Lenni Dorner (Thursdays)
  • Legends, Myths, and Storytelling (Fridays) A continuous story told in parts!
  • Lenni Lenape /Native American interests (Saturdays)

I had over 6000 subscribers. And I'm starting over.
The middle of nowhere. When even Google maps is like "I've got nothing." That's my spot.
