I went to a Camille O’Sullivan Gig on Sunday with Annabel, and one of her songs put a short story idea in my head.
It was her song 5 Years, which is off of the album Live at the Olympia. Basically the premise for the story is that 5 years ago something happened that meant that humanity that the end of the world would be in 5 years time, there was nothing that could be done about it, the world was just going to end in 5 years. The Story would be from the point of view of a survivor of the chaos, retelling what happened over the past 5 years.
There is a twist which should be obvious, but in case it’s not I’ll not go into it.
On another note expect a review of the Gig in a later blog post, I may try to ressurect some of my old gig reveiw blog posts from when I was a “Freelance Event Technician” or Roadie. They are sitting in the databse of my old blog which has since been scrapped.
