“Friends shouldn’t sell each other out,” it said with pity and reproach, “figuratively OR literally.”
And welcome, readers, to the end of the month and the Final Week Fable! The time when I force myself to keep my writer’s muscles in practice by banging out a short story based on an image in my collection.
What tale awaits us this time? What adventures lie in store? Well, for starters, our hint for this month is:
Yes, another fantasy story. What a surprise. Deal with it! And be prepared to learn why Magic Is Friendship!
Not for the first nor the last time, he had to fight the feeling that he was prancing on rooftops in the nude and climbing like a chimpanzee in the Borneo jungle.
Well, it’s that time of the month again, folks! Where I, a writer writing about writing stuff, attempt to do stuff that is actually writing! And what image shall be the inspiration for this month’s tale?
So clearly, this is going to be a very tasteful and refined short story. One which asks the most fundamental question at the very core of our psyche:
Who would win in a fight: A werewolf or a velociraptor?
Apparently, displaying the corpse of Le Fay’s little acolyte who was cursing my fields has discouraged further uprisings.
Hey, hey, it’s the last weekend of the month! Or at the very least, it was. That means it’s time for another SHORT STORY! …Of COURSE I have an audience looking forward to these! Can I pull this off a SECOND time?
So, what will be The Write Stuff’s next short story/mini-fic? What MONSTROSITIES lurk within his image folder? And based on the picture alone, just WHAT will be written about it?
And this month’s picture iiiiiiis:
So let us go back through the mists of time and legend. An age of chivalry, valour, and strange women distributing swords at the bottom of lakes as the basis for government. For at the Round Table of King Arthur’s court, the greatest of knights gather to serve as a shining example of humanity. And THESE…are not those knights.
Without further ado, I now present: The Knights at the Kids’ Table!
So without further ado, welcome to the first post in a new series about powers! Much like the posts about specific characters, but now talking about specific superpowers and abilities you get in fiction. And of course, I’m starting with one of the simplest and most direct powers: Strength.
