The Third Session

Look up in the sky!

It's a bird!

No, it's a plane!

No, it's Icarus' Flight To Perfection!

While one moderator is with little or no Internet access, the other hides in a corner and rocks in a fetal position (obviously not Nicole/Coraline).  Maybe since it is almost December, we need a third moderator that has frankincense and myrrh?  Well, I'll crawl out of my mental hole long enough to set up the third session by using two previous starter sentences from our first poll-

David says, "When you say you're in, you're in. Get it?"

MRM says, "The red sky that morning should have been my warning."

Plus, I'll add this one, "Sometimes...promises are made to be broken."

Whichever of the three selections that you choose from, you must write a story (or poem) with a minimum 150 words and maximum of 1300 words. The sentence can be anywhere in the story, but it must be there in its entirety.

This sounds simple enough, but if you've done this before, then you know better. If you are in, please say so in the comments section of this post. Have your story done by Saturday @ 9 AM Pacific, December 18th, all right?

The Second Session: The Stories

Times Up!

Ready or not, the Second Session is here! There were three sentences to chose from-

"The first time his/her/their payment was handed over I figured it was a one time deal, but the second time?"

"Of all nights that I had to trespass into the world of darkness it was this night."

"It was Sunday, and there shouldn't have been a letter in the mailbox, but there was."

Let's see the results-

Beach leads us into some intrigue.

Denise shows us a prelude to war.

Flannery takes us into the wild west again.

Nicole reveals to us what can happen under a full moon.

Cormac steams open an envelope.
