“The Only Cartographer” began in March 2014 as a singular story that was the product of one of the Story Shuffle prompts at The Sprint Shack (the site I co-founded/author). It’s a bit longer than most pieces found here on Little Write Lies – and very different from what I usually write. I initially intended to use this prompt as a morning writing warm up, but it ended up evolving into a story that I’ve continued past the initial post. Admittedly, I cheated a bit and placed the story in NEW Persia instead of the originally stated Persia.
The Story Shuffle prompt required I used the following elements in the story:
Character bio: Ex-pirate-turned-travelling-salesman
Item of interest: Enchanted canvas
The story is still developing and I post new segments as they’re ready. Here are all the current parts of the series in the order that they were posted. Enjoy!
