I guess that's a reason for me to buy a copy of volume two next summer in the hope they decide to go for volume three!
    Unfortunately that is one drawback. It occurred to me when I picked the theme that some of the writer's on the forum like submitting their works elsewhere. I was hoping it wouldn't be too much of a problem.

    I said this to a writers group member, who nodded and made hmmming noises and then suggested I translate the basic story to another setting with a prescient aspect, the Oracle at Delphi perhaps. I don't think it's going to work.

    Okay, here I am, approximately 4.7k split about equally over two posts:

    NOT CHECKING

    Fun prompt. It sparked several ideas, two in particular that I'm a little tempted to write up. Not sure, given the submission issues it might be a bit of time wasting. But hell, I'm always procrastinating on my WIP so who knows?

    I have 4299 words sitting in a Word document for this short story but I am struggling to find a nice wrap-up/end for it. For the first time I've ventured outside my usual fantasy stuff to do a take on a space story (I hesitate to call it SF) but I am not sure I like it. Lol. Going to print it out and read through and see if I get any ideas as to how to finish this one...

    ...and here it is - I am curious what you folks think about this. I apologize for the numerous **** appearing in the text. The characters just begged to be allowed to curse, and I could not deny them such an unhazardous character trait. Why are posts in the *Stories* section censored anyway.

    Yes, I too found my creative expression unforgivably impaired! I w*nt b*ck in and made it j*st the vowels so it was clear exactly how my characters were breaking the rules...

    The beginning I got, the end I totally got... the middle--not so much.

    This is being quite interesting. Mortality, in any form, is one of the great themes.

    Alright, I'm putting up the voting poll. . . How exactly do you make a poll, anyway?

    Edit: Never mind, I got it. The voting poll is now up.

    Unfortunately, I got caught up with a lot of other stuff, didn't get a chance to write this one down.
    Perhaps next time, or I just might post it, for the fun of it. Need to write it first, that is.
