Short Story Compendium

Calling all writers!

Love to write but don’t have the time or energy to keep up a role-play? In this topic you can write and showcase one-post short stories! As long as they comply with the forum rules and guidelines, of course. :slightly_smiling_face:

I don’t write short stories but I know some of you guys do. So have fun and happy writing! :grinning:

One more thing, do you think this topic should consist of ONLY short stories and I make a separate discussion topic for comments etc., or do you think comments are okay in this topic?

  • Make a separate discussion topic.
  • Comments on this topic are fine.

Today I have for you a short story challenge drawn from different pieces of writing inspiration!

There will be three inspiration topics: Prompts, worlds, and characters. Depending on whatever inspires you, draw something from one of those topics and write a piece from it. Each piece will be numbered, so say something like, “I choose number five from prompts.”

If someone took the inspiration piece you were going to use first, please do write something from it anyway. It’ll be interesting to see how the stories differ. :smile:

Inspiration topics:

Prompts

Is it possible to combine prompts? Like ‘‘I’ll take character 7 and use prompt 4 in my short story’’?

Absolutely! Go ahead :grin:

I thought you had taken three images, though one of them might have been yours to begin with. If it wasn’t, than you took this one:

Three is one of my favorites :laughing:

Huh, I was pretty certain that had shown up in my feed from your board, but I guess not.

So which piece(s) do you choose for the challenge?

I choose… 8. In worlds… And probably 7. In characters only because i already have one that it fits… It is subject to change however.

After spinning a story based in World War 2 and discovering it was faaaar to long to be called a short story, I’m going to try something else.

New short story to be written soon. However, those characters will be featured in London’s Call.

You have a pretty good writer living under the same roof with you. Why don’t you ask her? @TheMidget

Well I just got off the phone with her and she said that she would write me one, but I want one in a Comedy genre and she doesn’t do comedy that well. So she’s going to do a dramatic one for me and if anyone on here can do a comedic one that’s what I would want.
If that makes sense.

Why not ask Draven? If he can’t do it, no one can.
