week 9

I nearly gave up this week, then I came across a story I'd started writing a month or two back and got re-inspired by it, and finished it. I think this is the first time I've ever managed to come back to a project that I put on hold. Most the time when I 'take …

week 8 and Europa Report

Finished the story for this week which was about some people who live on an island in the sky, and one  man who believes there are other islands and wants to try to fly to one. Started out feeling pretty good about it, but then it just fell apart. I got to the end but …

I ended up writing about someone who could look into the minds of people in photographs, seeing their thoughts and feelings in the brief instant that the photo was taken. It turned out over-dramatic, pretentious and directionless, …
