RE: Looking for 100 word stories

I'm keen, Rosen.

I hope there's no deadline because at the moment I'm like a dustcat chasing its tail.

No deadline. I plan to make the stories a permanent feature in the newsletter.

What I Read

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

This looks like fun. A new daily read to enjoy. I'm looking forward to seeing how much angst and how many bodies Linda can squeeze into 100 words!
Here's my first go - exactly 100 words - if I'm allowed to exclude the title.


No Lucky Stone

It had to be good. It could have been good. It should have been good.
I planned it all: the hand-in-hand walk along the beach, the playful searching of the rockpools for anemones and starfish. I often find a pretty little red pebble with a hole in it, a ‘lucky stone’; I had a leather braid in my pocket to make her a necklace.
I’d booked lunch in that cosy restaurant on the quay, and reserved the table in the window with the view of the harbour.
I thought it would be so very good.
But she didn’t turn up.

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

"At the Roof's Edge"

A muffled scratching broke the silence as he shuffled to the precipice, toes curled into the edge, nothing else between him and infinity; head held high.

None called to step back, none below looked up. No one would call emergency; someone would call maintenance. The last of his family, all others hunted down and killed before him, he must follow through with his animal desires.

Hated, despised, ignored by the people around him, safety always came at the rooftop. Even there, barriers tried to stop him seeking the edge.

He stepped into space.

Gravity stopped.

He was but a pigeon.

Thank you both. I shall include them this week.

Xavier, do you have a Kindle book I could link to that's not erotica please?

Probably the closest thing to not erotica is 'Tragedy of the Virgin Bride'. My readers have classed it as a historical romance, with a little bit of erotic overtones. Either that or 'A Hero's Return', but it does get rather explicit at times.

I understand it if you are unable to link to any of my books -- it's one of the things I have to live with as an erotica author.

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

We don't have a 'no erotica' policy as such. But since it's going to be linked from your name with no warning, I don't want to give people too much of a shock!
