The impending eclipse got me thinking about how man has been affected over the years by eclipses. One reportedly stopped a war. I’m sure ancient man thought they were all going to die when the sky went dark in the middle of the day, too.
So, I decided I would write a short story to commemorate the event. And then asked some writer friends if they wanted to play along, too.
Here is what I have so far. Check back today and tomorrow as more writers send me their links.
Our Sun Got Mooned by Patrick Newman
Eclipse By Connie Kinsey
Ironically, I wrote the first draft of my story a week before I read this piece from The Atlantic, but the author seemed to have the same idea I did.
