Writing Update

Well, I am still flailing away at my Machine of Death short story, something that should’ve been complete a month ago. I’m making progress, and could hopefully finish it soon, but it is not yet done. To be honest with you, writing that one hasn’t been all that enjoyable. I will not give up, though.

I wonder why I’m having so much trouble with that one, as I also had trouble with the Shimmer Magazine Pirate story. Maybe it’s because it’s forcing me to write to someone else’s idea rather than my own? I hope that’s the reason and it isn’t because I am simply incapable of completing a short story. Again, I won’t give up.

I have been doing some writing and enjoying some writing. I have been contributing to a pretty funny story over on the Ficlets site (I have written 2 parts, another writer has written 5 parts). The story is written in the first person and is about a woman who wakes up to find a snake in her toilet. I turned the snake into a talking snake, and there is also a talking pigeon. It turns out the woman has to save the world from a cookie. Anyhow, it’s a pretty funny story. Here are the links:

Anyhow, it’s a pretty silly but I think well written story. Check it out. I have to say it’s pretty cool collaborating on a story with someone I have never met, but seems to have the same type of sense of humor as myself.

  1. Keep going with it.

    I’m the opposite from you, I seem to work better from a starting point (that some other poor soul has put time and effort into thinking up). I find it very difficult to come up with characters and settings from thin air.

    Perhaps we should collaborate?
