short story cycle


I thought there was at least a schemata to the stories. I know what's at the end, and though the stories meander, I thought I knew each one would touch on something thematically. This would also limit their number.

And now the last one jumped off the scheme. Which means the story are now rambling still more wildly. Possibly with another theme schemata, but a longer one.

Still going to end the same place. Just going to take longer to get there. . . if this is not just the beginning.
