Fiction by Vince
Long, long ago, when televisions only came in two colours and being bad was never a good thing I used to make up stories. Actually I didn't, I made that bit up. I didn't actually make up stories as a child. Never did unless obliged to do so during my English studies.
No one who knew me then would have predicted that I would be like I am now. Except that the blond hair and chubby cheeks still remain, of course. But as a teenager and into my adulthood I have always harboured a desire to write. And fiction is the best place to start when you lead a fairly normal life and haven't discovered penicillin or captained your country in tiddlywinks.
However, the trouble with fiction is that it takes up too much time. And I've been fannying about with this site in it's various incarnations for too long to develop some of these ideas. If you feel like assisting (read 'sponsoring me') get in touch. So, read on and weep*.
Shortest - The shortest story of all. Except shorter ones. And longer ones with most of their pages missing. For more short stories why not link up to the-phone-book.com You never know whose work is featured.
2 Cases - A thriller. Or it will be when it is finished. Not so thrilling in it's present state but you'll get the idea.
Loch Ness - An incomplete story about the discovery of the Loch Ness monster. Commenced after seeing what effects could be achieved with the film Jurassic Park (Yes, that long ago). Sadly abandoned when the film Loch Ness appeared, starring Ted Danson. Must watch that someday.
Vincent - Story about a bike. With a great name. Or am I just biased?
*Its not that the stories are sad. Only the writer, for thinking any of these works is worthy of a Pulitzer or Booker . Or worthy of publication. Or even reading come to that.
