I am no H.P Lovecraft, so maybe I will give it a go
in another literary theater next time...


Hi Wild,
Believe me when I say that NONE of us are!!! (Lovecraft)

This isn't really a Contest.
It's just a forum.
An Avenue for exploring different creative ideas and for sharing them with people who appreciate the effort!
It's about having fun and expanding our collective imagination.
It's about helping us ALL to develop as writers and imagineers!! (Yes, I'm allowed to make that up - just because...!)
Imagine how boring it would be - If we all wrote the same way!

The theme this time around is "Proper Horror", but it can be ANYTHING from Gothic to Cyber Sharks with Lay-zerrs! (as Sprocket said) LOL.

The rules are pretty simple too.
Just write a T&C friendly short story (that fits with the theme) and link to it in this thread.
That's about it!

Our first steps may be small... but if we never take them....

Thanks Gordi!
I will keep that in mind.
I had no intention to submit to
"The Horror" forum this time around.
I was more rather curious to as how the
process worked.

By the way, I just added an ARP Pro DGX
fully restored synth to my collection.
It is one of these.

I am just debating whether or not I should share one of my nightmares in a short story here, I have so many of them probably from my religious upbringing (devils and hell and all that); kinda like Stephen King.

This is your last chance to get a last-minute entry in folks!

Yup, the contest will be closed to new entries in the next few hours.... so if you're debating whether to post yours or not... Do It Now! or it shall remain buried.... with the un-dead.... it's cold heart still beating beneath the dank earth above... as the slimy creatures of the nether-world start to bite and scratch at its most delicate parts.... mwahahhaaaa!!

Fell asleep before I could get very far, unfortunately, loo. Still gonna try and write this one though; horror isn't quite in my normal range and I like the idea of branching out, xD
