So, just in case you thought that Art was all just pretty shiny and glowy twisty prims and pretty music and movies OOOOOOOH SHINY, occasionally some of this Literature stuff knocks on the windowpane and goes "Hey, mind if I crash this party?"
However, in the absence of actual literature, there's always the flash microfiction drivel I spew, and then surround with the efforts of others.
Every week, I post up a topic and then challenge folks to write and record a 100 word story on that topic. Then, on Sundays, I edit together the results and share them.
More often than not, a crop of your fellow SL-ers get into the action. Quite a lot over the years have dipped their toes into the water and... well, here... here's the announcement for this past week's effort:
100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge #264
This week’s 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge offers up stories from SL’s Uriel Weeler (and son!), Danny Dwyer, NorvalJoe Parkin, and Crap Mariner among others. You can listen via the website: http://podcasting.isfullofcrap.com/
And feel free to join in for Challenge #265 by choosing any TWO topics from the list on the site.
See? Them thar writers is everywhere!
Since I can't shut my stupid pie-hole for longer than a minute, I fill the rest of the week with daily stories, share the latest every Wednesday... blah blah blah, you don't wanna hear all that noise.
Forget I said anything about it. Focus on that Weekly Challenge thing. Give it a try yourself.
Oh, and coming soon to the Seanchai Library, a full-on reading of some of my own efforts over the past... SIX YEARS?
Ugh. Six years of doing this stuff. SIX YEARS! ONE A FREAKING DAY UNTIL THE DAY I DIE! (Heck, it's a lot healthier than smoking, I figure. Not much, though. *cough* *cough* Argh.)
But forget about me... what about YOU? Now that the bar's been set on the floor for literature and writing, the sky's the limit... let's hear what you folks are doing publishering-and-writing-and-literaturewise out there on the grid with the fiction and the poetry and the writing and the this and the that... let's hear it! SHOUT IT OUT!
BIO Mr. R. Crap Mariner is. This is a great disappointment to some. Deal with it.
