I'm an avid creative writer. I have a novel currently being considered for representation by an agent (whom, in turn, I trust completely). I have many, many megabytes of short stories here and there on my drive, possibly 20-30 stories in all. I rarely write about gaming or tech in my creative works, but this one's a bit different.
Give the fact that I LOVE writing short fiction, I belong to an online writers' group. The moderator, who goes by the screen monkier "Creole Ned," gives us ideas upon which we riff to create short stories.
I've been lurking this online message board based club for months, but finally submitted my first short story. Ned's premise?
