I think that only works with hillbillies. If it's a sailor, blame it on Davy Jones.

Re: The Hoods in the Woods

How unfortunate, and embarrassing... :oops: Which words need hyphens, so I can make another draft and repost it. Are they paint-stained, rubber-chicken, and baggy-clothed?

The Hoods in the Woods

Travelers are wise to be weary of the woods. Word is they’re haunted, Or plagued with hoods. Stories are told of rainbow haired ghosts, And red nosed spectres Drifting from pillar to post. Paint stained faces: Unnerve some, terrify most. With balloon animal familiars, They take the unaware. Rubber c...

Re: An Account of My Admittedly Brief Time as a Crime Fighter

The last sentence sort of punctures the absurd point that he is a crime fighting hero for making a phone call. I can see him expecting to get his picture in the paper: "The brave citizen who made the anonymous call". He could be called 911-Man, and the only two devices on his utility belt are a cel...

It's a true story, based on my childhood life. I still have the taxidermied boogeyman head mounted on my wall. :)

The Little Boy Adventurer

The little boy adventurer descends into the labyrinth beneath his homestead. His steps are slow, and methodical. His nerves flare, but he ignores them; he cannot afford to be frightened. Somewhere in that unrelenting darkness hides a monster. This creature is notoriously evil, and infamously grotesq...

The Triumvirate of Cheese

In the Land of Cheese, there are three who stand above all other cheesekind as the sharpest, most pungent, and purest of rennent: Cheddar, Monterey, and Blue, like the sides of a triangle, are a strong union. The trio overcame the fascist Mozzarella revolt, and filled the hole after the annexation o...

The House Blend

Drip, drip, drip goes the coffee. It’s a thick substance, like mud, and it’s just as dark. It’s as black as tar. It looks revolting, but the smell... The aroma is rich and heavy. It drifts through the air, invading one’s nostrils, pulling them in to have a taste. Oh, the taste: strong, colourful, an...

A Thing Called Life

For centuries, aliens have masqueraded as humans: studying our behaviour and determining our place in the universal hierarchy. It was only a matter of time before we tried it out. My consciousness has been passed around like a party favour. Now, I have too many memories. I've experienced too much, a...

Re: The Bus Stop

Good idea for a story, I like the twist ending. I think it might be beneficial to break it into two paragraphs to add to the pacing and tone of the story. As it is, I think this piece lacks structure.

Re: Proving Myself

Interesting concept, but I would have liked to hear more about the research. I think a line about the speaker's findings would make this story work quite well.

Re: Butterfly

I liked the positive message of this story. I think it worked, despite the fact the story didn't follow the same line of thinking as the original Butterfly Effect thought experiment. As writers, it's our duty to twist things around and look at them from different vantage points. Artistic Liscence is...
