“The Bean Bag Show” Deleted Scene

“The Bean Bag Show” Deleted Scene

When I write, I write far too much. In my first two novels, at least 20,000 words were cut from each. Usually, there are certain scenes that are taken out of the book entirely because they simply have no place. If the book can stand on its own without a scene, then there’s no point in that scene being there.

So for the BranFans, I’m posting a very old, barely edited excerpt from the original BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE (then it was, THE FARFIELD PLOT). As you will see, this is an example of the type of thing that doesn’t belong in a book. It’s a scene I had fun writing when I was 14, but inevitably does nothing to further the plot.

I’ve prefaced this so you don’t take this as an example of my writing and go “Fah! What nonsense! I’m tossing this book in the trash compactor immediately!” or something similar. Without further ado, you can download it here (PDF) or read below:
