This is something I'm working on at the moment. I just started writing one day and this is what came out! Still not entirely sure where it's going, but I have an idea. 'Ghosts' is the nearest category I could find, but it's more spooky/ supernatural.

 Fiction: Chains. Part 1. - by reckless (2719 words) - Date online (29-09-2006)
  
Novel Excerpts

This is my first bit of Chapter 1 in the write-a-novel-in-a-year thing. The novel is about how chance and circumstance can shape and determine one's life. It looks at a short period in the lives of a few individuals who get caught up unwittingly with one another; and caught up in a very difficult situation (that's all I'll give away at the moment) and the nub of the novel is how they cope with it. Please be patient, the first chapter just sets some of the scene and I'm having to slip from one bit to another. Hope it works so far.

I wasn't sure if this was short enough to be classed as Flash Fiction. Originally it was going to be something longer, but I ran out of steam – hence the tacked-on ending. Might use it as the start of a novel one day, but in the meantime would value comments/ criticism/ opinions! Thanks.

 Fiction: (UKAWANIAY) Tempting Fate - Chapter 1 - by Hazy (1441 words) - Date online (29-09-2006)
Novel Excerpts

Only posting this 'cos that Claire has my arm twisted behind my back lol. This is my first chapter for my UKAWANIAY thingy, although I do need to sort out the tenses. I'm also way under on the word limit of over 4k. Maybe I'll just halve the length of my book to get round that one ;-) Opinions and crit needed, but please bear with me as I never thought I'd be writing a novel until my retirement, many moons from now and I'm feeling very unsure about it all! At least it's got me writing... But I'm not happy about the fact it's just one person's thoughts (as a lot of my stuff seems to be). I think I'll stick with that for the first chapter as it's kinda the way I write - more of an introduction, I guess; but will introduce other characters and conversation later on. Hazy, biting fingernails x ======================================
