Sugar: urban spirit worker
In a future Los Angeles a courier of illegal goods is arrested for a crime she didn't commit.
After losing the trust and credibility of the underground community, she turns to the spirits that inhabit the city to help her unravel the past and see where she went wrong.
Her discovery forces her to find a new way to survive alone in the urban wilderness.
This is a writing project that I have been working on since 2016.
I have always wanted to read/watch a slice of life story in a cyberpunk setting
and eventually I decided to write one myself. I have been writing my whole life
but never had much interest in writing fiction until recently. This project is an
experiment in prose, uncovering limitations, abandoment of conventions, and
liberation from expectations. As I started to feel like I was getting what I
wanted on the project, the next step seemed to be sharing it. I hope that some
folks enjoy what I've been able to squeeze out of myself here.
