NOVEMBER CHALLENGE 2010

A story a day, for thirty days

_______________________________________________

 

I had to go all the way around the universe and back to write this one – or, at least, as far as my imagination could stretch.  I would kind of like to make a novel out of this, but reckon it would spoil it.

This one has a cosmic finality to it that makes me wish I’d written this on the 30th, to round things off.  But sometimes a story has to be written right away, or else it stops being a story in your mind and ends up just as an idea, shrivelled up and without any life.

[Edit:  Sorry, you are too late to read this story.  Some stories may be retained on the website.  Some e-mail requests for copies of the stories are being granted (spinning.lizard@yahoo.co.uk).]

I’ll hopefully have the website proper up to date by the time I go to bed, if I can stop eating Turkish Delight long enough.  For the .pdf copy of the story above you can read online (you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader) or download to your PC, laptop or e-book.

The stories will remain available for a minimum of 30 days but no later than 30th December 2010.  I would love to hear your thoughts on any of the stories either on this blog, or via the website’s forum.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading,

db
