Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Friday 55

Alright folks, the object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you participate, be sure to drop a comment at G-Man’s blog so others will know how to find your story.



Candles flicker on an unseen wind. Light as a feather she circles; toes barely touch the floor. A book lays ignored, spread open on an altar. Athame held high, she summons the watchtowers. Thoughts pure, her desire focused. Power flows up her legs, through her body. She releases with a shudder. The spell is cast.

I also wanted to remind everyone that I’m blogging over at Oh, Get a Grip! tomorrow. This week’s topic is Erotica vs. Porn. Where do you draw the line? So, come by and see me this weekend if you get a chance.

Erotica and Porn.

I love them both.

Your 55 is smashing.

I feel the power.

I feel the wind.

And I feel the candle flickering.

I want to know what kind of spell she's casting...Hmmmmm...

Thank you strumptet. The nature of the spell is open to interpretation, but you can bet it is a good one. ;D

I confess that after reading the first line, I skipped to the final sentence before reading it through just to see if you'd throw me a twist.

I'm oddly disappointed and thrilled at the same time that there is no twist. I shall have to examine this new emotion. Thanks for making me think.

lol, Kelly. Every once in a while I have to throw in one sans twist just to keep everyone on their toes.

If every story has a twist, it looses its power and becomes expected. :D

I gotta say that you certainly know how to spin a yarn, whether it's 55 words, or 55 hundred words!!

Holy Cow that was awesome!

It's an honor that you've invited me here...Thanks


(...and another thing, if I make remarks to you and/or about you, in an ascerbic manner because you may have beaten me to the punch to make comments on certain mutually read blogs....
It's all in good natured fun, please don't make me no nevermind...G)
