 Fiction: Dog Shit - by Johnser (1960 words) - Date online (23-07-2004)
Humour

Dog Shit is a story about Prince, and his fictitious abdication from the throne. It's completely made up honest, so sincerest apologies to fans of the diminutuve Minneapolis funkster. It didn't really happen and I have the footage to prove it!

 Fiction: Manley & I 1 - by Jack_Cade (1080 words) - Date online (23-07-2004)
Novel Excerpts

It's the future, and the prison city of Norwich is a key step in the advancement of civilization. Prisoners are afforded all the freedom of normal citizens, except that they cannot leave the city until they have proved themselves to be socially dependable. If they break the rules, they are easily caught, and their freedoms taken away. The program gives criminals a way to gradually re-enter the world by proving their worth, without letting them off the leash, and has so far had a high rate of success.

'Manley & I' is about people living in an environment where they must aspire towards other people's idea of what is good and great. More specifically, it's about those who don't want to.

Drama

This story is the result of using UKA's Character Generator - obviously I couldn't use every little detail that the generator came up with or it wouldn't have been a short story - so I just concentrated on a few of the points. Using the generator was a lot of fun and very inspirational - you should try it for yourselves!

This was just an exercise in descriptive writing, trying to form the image of the place, the things happening and the feelings of those involved in the readers mind. Would like to know what people think. Also would like comments on layout and punctuation, I'm very rusty with writing. Thanks in advance.

 Fiction: Seeing Red - by dancing-queen (1417 words) - Date online (16-07-2004)
Drama

I found the inspiration for this little story from Derek, a friend (and colleague), who recently came back from a week's holiday and explained his adventure with such enthusiasm that I asked if I could base a story around it. I've taken little bits and pieces of info from his account and turned it into something fictitious.

Now, I'm not a fan of blood sports or anything to do with harming animals, and by writing this I'm not condoning those sports. I wouldn't personally go on a trip like this. But some people do and I thought I would write something around their experiences. Excuse the bad language - that's guy's for you, lol.

So, thank you Derek. Really glad you made it back in one piece! Leahx

Just Plain Daft.

This guy is a power crazed nutcase. He has the position to make such a difference but wastes it on personal interest. He’s always being quoted by the right leaning media (such as The Joke Daily Mail) so I’ve decided to make up my own quotes.
