ShortStoryWeekThis is quite unbelievably cool. Nearly a month ago I had an e-mail from Ian Skillicorn, aka Mr Short Story Radio, aka Mr National Short Story Week, asking me if I’d like to participate in a consequences-style short story challenge. The idea was that each one of us would contribute 100-150 words in turn, building on what had been written before.

I must have hesitated for all of 3 nanoseconds.

The result went up today and it works rather well, don’t you think? But just take a look at the list of writers involved:

To say I feel honoured to be in there doesn’t begin to express how I feel. I’m quite gobsmacked.

Oh, and one more quick reminder: VWC Open Mic at the Goat, tonight. Be there or be square etc.

    Like this a lot, and fun to try to spot the cracks between the pieces; some shifts but it felt like a coherent whole, an intriguing read 🙂

    Thanks, Ed – nice of you to drop in! It is interesting to see how each writer has added their own spin whilst keeping it largely consistent with what’s gone before and avoiding the obvious temptation to introduction dragons or vampires 🙂
