February's short story is going to be a really long one, to make up for my neglect of last month. But I'm not going to clutter up my blog with it - instead you can read it here.
I'm writing this story as a project for a writers forum, which involved "adopting" a plot thought up by another writer. The plot I adopted was:
Have a space ship manned entirely with people that have emotions for names sail off into "the void" a large, suddenly empty part of the night sky trying to investigate and see what they can find. They find the scattered, foreboding ruins of an ancient civilization, that seemed to have scattered across teh planets without getting high tech. ie: They have technology comparable to the Mayans/Aztecs, and yet the same civilization is on a bunch of the planets they find on their way. Then, plot twist happens, and they find out how the hole in the sky and the old civilization are connected! Dun dun DUN?
It will be in six installments, and under 6,000 words. So far I have the first two installments... check the above link for future updates.
Oh, and one other thing. If you read this and don't even give me one word of feedback or opinion or something? Then you deserve to eat cold sausage on stale bread with hot mustard for the next six months. I'm completely serious.
