“One would think so, but as we know but the audience might not, dialogue, although it seems to be merely putting one word in front of another in an intelligible manner, is a major force in a story that gives personality and identity to characters with a lot of balancing factors for too much or too little-”
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.

Without further ado, I now present: The Knights at the Kids’ Table!
“You know what? I abandon my holy order and defect to the enemy.”
Yep, it’s that time of the month where I talk about tabletop gaming! …Yes, it’s now a thing. I even announced it and everything!
Every game needs a player. And players need a goal. So the campaign is set, the story begins, and the actors in this production gather. Their myriad paths will cross and converge in an entire adventure, but there is a great obstacle in their way.
