Cool, I think I got an idea to run with on this.

Is there going to be any prize for this, bragging rights or future book deals , etc...

I may do this. Why can't we have our own topics? I do my best work doing free style.

This makes people write original pieces. No Topics would let people post anything they have written in the past.

I am about half way done with a story that I started a few days ago.
Readers will think it is either really creative or the dumbest thing they ever read.

Isn't that what all of us aspiring authors think about our works?

I hope so. Everyone else will have to be the judge of that.

I'm not going to give away my plot just yet, but I think I have an interesting idea/story. I don't recall ever writing a story like this in school or college, so I'm in new territory here. My once mighty college writing skills are slowly come back to me though.

So far, I got a beginning to the story done, and I think I got a really good ending for it. However, I am currently having a little trouble putting together a smooth transition from the main story into the final act.

I'll keep this thread informed as it progesses.

Write for yourself. Things come out better in the long run that way. I bet it's pretty cool. Reading cookie cutter stories where everything is the same isn't any fun.

Everyone has their own topics, all you have to include in the story is the beginning of the joke "A priest, a rabbi, and Santa Clause walk into a bar..." in some form. Give it a try, bud, you don't have to show us your work when you're done with it if you don't want to, but at least use it as an excuse to exercise those neurons.

I'll see what I can come up with.
