    I was thinking of some sort of a writing challenge....of only a hundred words or so....everyone can write something as long as its one hundred words, no more and not less than 90 (no single word stories)...you come up with something to write about - maybe a beer bottle or a hooker or feeling deeply disturbed that you want to kill someone...and everyone writes a one hundred word story on that subject...
    perhaps there is another stephen king out there?

    I like that idea! Let's make everyone that wants to participate call out first, by a certain day. Then post. No fair for late comers, that can improve on what's written, what do ya think?

    That sounds good.

    I love those little writing challenges...I think one hundred words because its short enough - no long short stories - if that makes sense.

    I'm glad you like! Think we should at least wait until Monday, in case there are 'weekend only' posters, we may not have noticed? Say a week from today? What do ya think?

    I want in on this, definitely.

    But only 100 words??? That'll be tough for me.

    The reason I said one hundred - two reasons really...

    One being..most people I don't think would be bothered writing something that went on into the hundreds - and that many more would not be interested reading...perhaps I am wrong.

    No, you're right. I can manage, but it might be a little tough.

    So, who picks the topic? And are we three the only ones in on this?

    I think at 100 words, we should each pick our own topics? Write on anything that appeals to us? Your thoughts?

    That sounds fine to me.
    I will probibly stick to the warped...I like dark stories....misery...death...that sort. Quite a cheerfull person I am....once that dark cloud that is hovering over me goes away and my bottle of gin is refilled - I will be fine.
    So whenever you guys are ready - so then am I.
