 Fiction: Someone Like Me - by Kazzmoss (3986 words) - Date online (20-08-2007)
Sci-fi

I've not written for a while and wanted to write a science fiction story for that kind of market. Yes, it's quite long and this is more or less the first draft. I don't know if it works, does it convey anything at all? It could be much longer as I wanted to go further, but felt it was getting too long for a short story and would it even be worth it? As always, my short stories always tend to pack too much in and tries to be a novel, I can't help it, thats the way I write and I do try to keep it from being too confusing. If any one can take a look and offer any suggestions, certainly proof reading, I would be really grateful. Thanks

Well, I’m delighted to do so, here ...

 Fiction: Tidying Up - by sirat (2134 words) - Date online (30-07-2007)
Drama

This is the story I wrote in Greece on the UKAway holiday. The idea was sparked off by finding a few sheets of scribbled-on notepaper and other detritis in my bedside cabinet, and also noticing Greek men linking arms in the streets. Unusually for me, I didn't know how it would end when I started writing. I hope you like it.

This story 'Petal' has been split into two parts. The split has been made because of length. The story is _based_ on actual events. (The identity of those involved has been changed but if you were a heavily into the papers about a month ago from submission date you might be able to work out what it's based on). Edit: Updated to correct mistakes.
