  • Frieda loved the great outdoors and vast empty spaces, the bigger the better. So it came as no surprise that, when a good friend of hers won two tickets for an hour long trip in a hot air balloon, she jumped at the opportunity when she got the invite to fly high in the sky. There wasn’t enough excitement in her life these days and everything had…[Read more]

  • I laughed my ass off over Wilbur’s paint antics, and I can imagine what that coloured mess looked like.
    One question: you said the paint was latex? We use emulsion paint for interiors, is that the same thing you […]

    The water, as expected, had begun to recede and once again slowly but surely, the cobbled stoned path was revealed. No one truly knew where it led to, even with the tide fully out the path’s end could not be seen. The popular local belief had everyone thinking that it just went on for miles under the sea only to come out at some godforsaken…[Read more]

    There’s no rush, no pressure, but ever there is time. If you have an idea then go for it. I’m trying to keep this new group active, or as active as I’m able. If I produce regular updates then it might encourage more people to give it a go. . .

    • Oh my gosh….you are on “C” already? I better get with it. I signed up for a few classes this semester WHICH I am enjoying. I just have to get use to my schedule so I know when I have down time to do this. It is something I want to do. One class I wanted to take was Creative Writing but I couldn’t find a time that worked. Next semester for sure.

      • Cripes Monica you sound really busy. There’s no rush, the previous challenges are going nowhere so they will always be ready when you are.

        • Ok! I am finally getting some routine down. As long as I keep the TV off this weekend I will accomplish some stuff. ….I think. 😀

    Come on in. . .I don’t bite.
    Honestly!

    • Ha! I think I am going to try the first challenge. I have just been busy. I have a letter I have to type that I should have did 3 weeks ago. So you see how I operate these days.
      The picture challenge……I can’t even think about at the moment. But it sure makes you think.

    It’s Wednesday! Mid-week and, why not introduce yet another challenge which originated at Thoughts. The picture challenge was always one of my favourite things to invent a story around simply because of the visual aspect which served to aid then spark my imagination. And once again, the story can be about whatever you like, and whatever genre…[Read more]

  • Annie’s hands shook slightly and hovered above the piano keyboard in anticipation of her very last performance. A half smile flexed itself across her crinkled and lined face, and a trace of a tear was cleverly disguised behind her glasses. The school assembly hall, packed out as usual, had the familiar boring drone of the headmaster going on and…[Read more]

  • During its hay day Thoughts had built up a fine tradition of weekly writing challenges which were set to inspire the participating authors to regularly contribute with their own short stories. These challenges came in many forms and returned some truly remarkable tales, and even more remarkable was the fact that they were written in such a short…[Read more]

  • There’s no getting away from the fact that Wilbur gets treated like a lord. Even after depriving him of all his munchy treats he still ends up getting special treatment.

  • Just a quick word to say hello and to announce the opening of this new space for fictional writers. If like me you enjoy the process of writing but never really had a reading audience, then post your stories here. . .you never know.

    One thing I would ask all members to observe is to remember that this Group/Forum is for fictional writing only.…[Read more]

  • Reading this part left me wondering; it’s not illegal to keep pigs in the USA, is it?

    It certainly isn’t over here in the UK, but it’s something that’s quite rare and usually found in more rural areas where farms are.

  • A hassock footstool humping pig!
    I’ve now got the image indelibly imprinted in my mind’s eye. Another good instalment.

    Wheldon and Alison waited outside the police building’s main entrance with Pete and Andy. A few seconds later the sound of an approaching speeding car cut through the ambient […]
