I self-published my first novel in 2013. At the time, I was also a big fan of an Audio Drama Series called ‘Black Jack Justice’; produced by an outfit called ‘Decoder Ring Theatre’. They’re still active, putting out audiobooks, with a back catalogue of hundreds of episodes of audio drama; mostly in two long-running shows. Between these two shows, they would put on more ‘variety’ shows, and one day back in 2009, they put a call out on the message boards for people to submit audio scripts.
About six months ago, I was cleaning out my computer, and came across a folder of (mostly unproduced) audio scripts. I decided it was time to do something with them; and started adapting them into novellas.
I have to admit, going back and seeing the way I wrote more than ten years ago is a bizarre learning experience. I’ve cleaned up some of the dialogue, added several scenes to make the plot clearer, and removed the ‘length limit’ that I had to keep in mind when writing a twenty minute script.
You may consider this the ‘Improved Director’s Cut’ of one of my very first original stories.
