Is there room in this section for people to post very short stories for others to comment on or has it been tried before ??


Which came first, the xenomorph or the egg ??

There's been a few things like that Ivan.  I set one up ages ago, followed closely by Mad Looney.  Then along came Kilo with his title challenge, once again followed by Looney.

They crop up from time to time but they tend not to last.  Writers are notoriously scared of critique.


That's me that is!

I remember the first time I ever watched a sheep die. It was struggling on it's legs and moaning softly to itself. I wonder what it was thinking as it made it's final stumble and landed on the grass, leaking blood from it's mouth. Was it thinking about all the warm days chewing on grass, all the blue sky it had seen. The scent of other sheep, the times of brief play as they jumped at each other. The adrenaline of flight as large things approached. Maybe it had great potential, as sheep go. Maybe it never made the most of it's opportunities. It had the skill to be the dark queen of the sheep, but was too lazy to stop grazing. It seemed to shudder a bit and I approached it. It looked at me, or at least I thought it did. It's life was fading as I stamped on it's head. I wanted to see what was in there that was making it work.

No, I still hadn't stopped the feeling. The sheep hadn't lost enough to sate my hunger. I needed something with more to lose something deeper, more substantial and richer.


he's ruining my buestiful threat!

Keeping a tab on my posts are we Funky? I didnt think you cared 
I have note books filled with short storys that are literally only a few pages long. so when they are posted (like the last one) It only seemed a few lines. And thus looked crap.
BTW I dont start new threads because someone else has done it, I genuinly didnt see the first one and decided to start a new one after asking to put some new titles in Kilo's thread. It looks like im jumping on a band wagon that isnt there.

hehehe, yep, I've just outed myself as your stalker.  Congratulations!

To be honest Looney, it's just that I have one of those memories that means I remember things like that.  I'm the original elephant child.  Just with less grey skin and smaller ears and nose.


That's me that is!
