MCW: Is That an Asteroid or a Planet? 1.0

Perhaps you are one of those few earthlings who had a chance to read all about Arthur Dent (as recorded by the earthling Douglas Adams, may he RIP), the notoriously unlucky ape descendant, who ended up traveling the universe only to have his home planet destroyed, not once, but as many as six times.  If you are so lucky as to know the story of Arthur Dent, it must be because you are living, temporarily, in a dimension in which the earth has not been destroyed.  Yet.  In that case I would suggest boarding the nearest spaceship and getting the bloody heck away from the planet as soon as is possible.

If, for some strange reason, your planet has not mastered the art of living in space, you may need the following story to pass the time as you wait for your impending doom.  My sympathies to you all for your inability to forestall your ultimate and unavoidable destruction, but really, what kind of a pathetic planet can’t even colonize space effectively?

Now, I suppose many, if not most of you are under the impression that Arthur Dent and Tricia McMillon where the only two earthlings to achieve space travel to the extent that they did.  If you are under this impression you are even more stupid than I first thought and I am seriously considering not even bothering telling you this story.  But as I need something to do to pass the time while I wait for the show of your planet being blown up, and you need something to do while you wait for your planet to blow up, I suppose I will share it with you.

Let’s see, where to begin?  How is it you earth people like to talk?

Ah yes, isn’t it “It was a dark and stormy night?”  Or was it, “Do you know where your towel is?”

Right, that will do just fine then.

It was a dark and stormy night…do you know where your towel is?

Perhaps just the first, you say?

Right.

It was a dark and stormy night…

(To be continued next month!)

Monthly Creative Writing

Thank you everyone for your comments on my last post!  From what you all said I have decided the following: Instead of Short Story Saturdays it’ll be Monthly Creative Writing!

I will post a short story/creative writing something about once a month.  I have decided to keep it casual, since that’s what you all seemed to want anyhow.  So I’m not going to say it’ll be once a month at the beginning, or the middle or the end of the month – just sometime during the month!  I am thinking that I will use this creative writing time to be a little more light-hearted than I am in my usual writing – but I am not sure it will always end up that way.

Some of you have been begging me for “Chick-lit”, others for mystery, others for Zombie-pirate-ninja-vampires, and still others for sexy ladies and secret agents.  Maybe I’ll use this time to delve into those topics a bit. Not all at once of course, but we have time to get into more than one thought thread here!  We’ll see what happens.  In any case I am excited to be sharing some creative writing with you.

That being said, these posts will likely not get the close scrutiny and excessive editing that my other work gets – but it will still be up to my standards of good work!  The idea is to have fun and share, not to make sure it is perfect.

I would also encourage you to please, please, please comment if you do read my work.  Even if it is to say one simple sentence I would really appreciate it.  To know I’m not throwing this out into the void is a great comfort to me, and your comments and your thoughts (and of course your prayers should you give them) mean more to me than you can imagine.

Also, go ahead and post ideas!  What do you want to read a story about?  I might surprise you and give it a whirl.

In between those posts I still plan on posting other things, but if you want to be a strictly creative writing reader, go ahead and click on the “Short Stories” category only and have at it!

In closing – Thank you all again!  Please keep watch because I am hoping to post something creative this month for your reading pleasure.  I have a few ideas floating around… so stay tuned.

Embrace Truth,

Kayleigh E. Suggett
