comments for the Shorties

Recommended Posts

I have one, I just need to double check the rules and wait till the comp is free for longer.

In the rules you mentioned something about "noises" in referring to the 4-word story. What's that about?

that is about me writing "örgs", and "kaboom" and "Splash" and not coounting it, claiming a noise is not a word :lol:

 

i love "demons"! you have misled me with your "Dracula", i thought there was a vampire on the porch. :p

 

that made the end all the more :shock:

I had the book originally as Pride and Predjudice, but needed to lose some words, and Dracula seemed to fit the title better. :roflmao:

i love it how the word count is forcing one to re-think choices like that.

Yes! I loved that too. Rather than being restricting, I found it thought provoking and just opening up new avenues.

makes me wonder about writing a shortie with the letters vanishing one by one....... very Whovian.. :teaser:

 

the trick would be to keep it readable.... to find words with fewer and fewer letters that kept the sense. hmmm. maybe something in that!
