Tell Me a Story...
It should come as no surprise that writers love to read. Or that my favorite genre just happens to be Dark Fantasy. As a result, for the remainder of April, May, and June, I am inviting my delightful, passionate, imaginative readers (or anyone else who happens by the blog) to Tell Me a Story: write or paste a short fictional tale in the "comments" section after this post; let others read it along with yours truly; and share in the fun of both reading and writing!
Readers, feel free to comment on any or all of the stories -- just so long as comments remain fun, kind, and playful at heart. You don't need to be an author or a professional writer to do this: Who cares if your verbs don't conjugate, or your participles dangle! (What does that even mean??? ;-)) Just have fun & follow these simple rules:
1. Keep it short: ranging from 3 paragraphs to 2 pages.
2. Keep it paranormal (some sort of supernatural or dark fantasy theme).
3. Keep it rated pg-13 (this is a public blog, after all ;-))
4. Please click on "COMMENT" to post a new story
click on "REPLY" to comment on a story already posted.
(And don't worry if it gets mixed up...)
5. And yes, you can post as "anonymous" or use a "pen name" if you like.
Other than that, you can write about anything you want...
For those who already have short-stories, post away.
For those who need a little "push" or incentive, feel free to choose one of the following "openers" and add your own ending (again, 3-5 paragraphs is FINE -- just have fun).
They say be careful what you ask for -- you just might get it and all that stuff...
But how could I have known that wishing to meet a dark handsome stranger would turn into this? That it might someday cost me my life?
I mean, vampires don't really exist, right?
The low, feral growl rose from the shadows as if part of the night. It surrounded me like a heavy tunic in the cool, night air, wrapping me in fear.
Cloaking me in terror.
The sign in front of the dark, abandoned hotel said Route 38: No vacancy.
It should have said, End of the Road: Run!
Okay, so some of us are slower than others...
Still, did I really deserve all this?
Everything or anything you want! :-)
