White Noise | Post Escape | Eta

*** Ash is captured. Eta escaped. The Virus is uploaded to the systems. The Institute is attempting to shut down their former projects (kill the experimentees). They know there is this mad man loose, but they don't know what he's planning. Ash and Eta do know what he's planning, but they're being hindered by this Institute. They must escape and avoid this group while they also stop the mad man. The Virus allows Chester full access to the Institute Computer System, and he helps Ash escape. ***


** the Institute is in the hills just before Santa Barbara, the Denny's is in Ventura. She parks the car in Oxnard and hops on the train to Union Station. **



From Wiki



********

Two hours passed. On the inside, Eta was feeling the intense pressure to get back to Chester and make a game plan. Her training told her to make sure she wouldn't be followed first. She'd borrowed a car from the Denny's parking lot. She'd driven in the wrong directions for miles, making frequent turns, watching for familiar faces or vehicles... after an hour she was sure she wasn't followed, or found.

She parked the car at a different Denny's, placed the keys into an envelope with some cash (enough to buy a better car), and put it on the floor board by the pedals. She called an anonymous tip from a payphone. With luck, the Police would have the car before the owner knew it was missing. She'd wiped it down for prints and evidence.

That was an hour ago. Five minutes later, the Metro Bus took her to the Metro Rail. That was four hours ago, she was back to Union Station. She'd walked from there. The car they had rented was in a safe place, it was rented under an assumed name, so the Institute shouldn't be able to find it. They'd have to go back for it when it was safe, unless Ash could get to it without being seen.

When she walked up to Chesters place and stepped in, she could hear him typing away. He turned around in relief. "Oh man! I'm so glad you are safe!"

"I am, but they have Ash. I came back here to re-group and re-gear, then I'm headed back up there."

"Actually, Ash wasn't the one I was worried about. You were the one we were worried about."

"We?"

"Oh yeah, I've been talking with Ash for the last hour. You went of the grid, you were the wild card. Now that we know you are safe we can execute my plan."

Eta could feel her skeptical face coming on, she could always feel it in her left eyebrow. Chester was too busy to notice. He called her to the computer.

"The virus worked. I've tapped into every system they have, and they don't know it's even in there. They have him in a room controlled by electronic locks. These people obviously never considered a cyber threat, they hired a security company for that system. It was installed after I left. I've been talking with him through the com system in the room. I've monitored the hallways and camera feeds, and looped the feeds for security. But we weren't sure about you. If they had you, we wanted to find out where so he could get you on the way out. All the feeds have groups still running searches for you in and around the compound."

Eta could see Ash strapped to an expensive looking chair, in the middle of a very white room. His arms and feet restrained with metal cuffs. He had wires taped to his head, and he was wearing a ridiculous looking biker outfit.... which felt familiar for some reason.

"Ash..." Chester spoke into the laptop mic. "Eta is safe... she's here with me."

He nodded, but Chester could tell he was listening to the hallway. Chester switched feeds to see people coming down the hallways. Four large guards, and a man in a white lab coat.

Chester whispered "I can let you out now, before they get in." Ash shook his head no... then motioned with his hand.

"Wait... on my signal." Eta said. "It's military sign language." Chester nodded.

The five entered the room  with some fan fare. The lab coat turned to face the camera. It was Dr. Briar. "Hello... Chester is it?" Dr. Briar smiled.

Chester and Eta looked at each other in horror.

"We've discovered your little virus. And we're quite safe here, I assure you." Dr. Briar turned to Ash. "You are a hard man to find. I almost had you in Oregon. I thought I'd lost you for sure. Then you just show up in my  building, like a gift wrapped present."

Dr. Briar turned to a computer system on the wall.

First Draft First Novel... Done! On to Edits...

So... I completed the first draft of my short novel White Noise - The Tower (Episode 1). 
You can read it (warts and all) below. I'm going to go back through and start editing (I already have). But it's mostly done now. I've also roughed out a book cover (we'll see if I stick with this direction).

Of course, I'm taking a big risk by calling it "Episode 1"... that means I have to write Episode 2, 3, & 4 at least. (That's where I have the story sketched out to at this point.

I hope you enjoy!

(Click here to read online) OR, email Me@DarrellWolfe.com and I'll put you on a list to be a beta reader when the final edits are done. 

Comment on this post or the Author Fun post about the Book Cover. Any feedback will be taken into consideration.


First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…

Vote @GovGaryJohnson for President in November 2016

Gary Johnson #Libertarian For President #LiveFree | #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
After much thought, review, and internal debate this past 12 months. I have taken a stand. I endorse Gary Johnson, Libertarian, for President of the United States of America. I will be voting Libertarian at every level (President, Senator, Mayor, School Board... etc) in November 2016.

I ask you to support a common sense approach, and to run from the Tyranny of Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton (and their parties).

When men and women are free from government and corporate interference, they are the happiest and more prosperous people.

You and I may have honest intellectual disagreements on the moral quality of one choice or another, and we can debate and discuss those choices openly and freely in a free society.

However, as long as you are not harming my person or property, and I am not harming your person or property, we should not attempt to control each other through government force. We should each be free to…

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

#Election2016 Clarification:
I heard another talk radio guy (Grant Stinchfield) jump on the Trump Train this morning... another person claiming to be a conservative who is so blinded by his hate for Hillary Clinton, he cannot see that the devil he chose is worse than the one he rejects.

Hillary and Obama combined couldn't harm this country as bad as Trump could. That's what worries me most about this coming election. But here's the thing Grant doesn't get. He thinks I'm voting for Gary Johnson because of Trump.

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.  Read on (HERE) to find out why...

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

Hello.... Welcome

I'm setting up this site to be a single HUB for all of my various creations. I'd rather not hand out a different business card to each person, as the topic of interest changes and I happen to have written about it.

Since I'm a Multipontialite, I figured it fits to have a single hub. If it works for Seth Godin, it works for me!

Thanks for stopping by, Darrell

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!! http://buff.ly/1PhijYQ #Pokemon #Fan

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!!  #Pokemon #Fan
OK... so several years ago I decided that the song "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" was my favorite Christmas song.

Then, after learning about Hippos, I decided they were one of my favorite animals.

This morning, I found a Hippo Pokemon set to the Christmas song... and I just HAD to share!
