The Fourth Session

It was once said that in order to gain perfection you must try, try, and try again...

...but we couldn't get more than two sentences for a poll?  Ah, c'mon people! ; )

Our sentences this month are:

"And that's why I don't own a gun."

"The bell tolled not once, not twice, but three times." Both from Nicole.

"In the moonlight the blood looked quite black." From Katherine.

Or you have a choice of including the following four words:

Fence, Mend, Court, and Misled.  All from Nicole.

Remember, If you fail to continue trying, you may end up like this...

Whichever of the four selections that you choose from, you must write a story (or poem) with a minimum 150 words and maximum of 1300 words. The sentence or words 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. Have your story done by Saturday @ 9 AM Pacific, January 22th, all right?

The Third Session: The Stories

C'mon, baby!  Strike one more blow and evil Santa will tumble like a Christmas tree perched on a wobbly stand!  Well, our third session is already in the bag and the REAL Santa has delivered some presents early.  We had three sentences to choose from-

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

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

Cormac said, "Sometimes...promises are made to be broken."

Without further delay, let's see the results-

Nicole looks at clouds from both sides now.

Beach takes us out of the frying pan...

Cormac goes poetic.

Katherine shows us the challenge one undergoes with oaths.

David reveals a certain man's true nature.
