Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights
“How It All Got Started”
Free serial fiction from Matthew Wayne Selznick.
They did their best to live and love and grow through the epic, unprecedented years at the end of the twentieth century. If you ask Car or Lina, Alex or Crystal, or any of their friends, lovers, rivals and peers, they’ll say their story began in the middle of the 1980s, in those hazy days and cloudy nights of San Clemente, Laguna Beach, Dana Cove, Abbeque Valley and all the little beach cities and planned communities in south Orange County, California.
With clarity and perspective earned through time and experience, each would point to their own particular moments when childhood at last began to blend into tentative, stumbling adulthood… and their lives got going at last.
And wherever life took them, they carried each other in their hearts, in their memories, and in the shadows of their dreams.
Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights is serial fiction set in my storyworld The Sovereign Era (Brave Men Run, Pilgrimage). The action of the first story arc, “How It All Got Started,” begins on the first day of summer vacation, 1984.
