I was more impressed that I got it to exactly 1000 words. All character and location names are ficticious blah blah blah

 Fiction: Why I Wear My Hat In Bed. - by woodbine (408 words) - Date online (20-12-2002)
Poetry

(This is my party piece with no literary pretensions, but it is good fun to perform. Should you want to try it , you will require: one old battered hat, one voice modeled on the late lamented Major Bloodnok as demented and paranoid as possible, and one shiny bald head. As it happens I can supply all three. Then go for it and don’t forget to act out all the flying bits. Merry Christmas!)

This is a book that is coming along very slowly. It's difficult to write because a lot of it is coming out all in the wrong order and having to be deciphered. I have to be in a certain kind of mood to write 'Tainted' I think it will take many years to write.

This is my story.....
