Hello,
Please leave a comment, i would like to know what you think of my attempts at writing fiction.
Please bear in mind that English is a language i had to learn in school, so if i get grammar or spelling wrong, correct me, but dont be too cruel…

(and I started noticing that most of my stories are a bit dark and vengeful. In real life i’m actually quite chipper and bouncy)

(and i am not very regular in my visits to this site, but i love all the feedback you give me)

Stories

  1. The word

    I went down the steps, counting them. My uncle told me there were precisely two hundred, but I didn’t feel I could trust him. Therefore I counted. My uncle didn’t lie. The rite of growing up, held in high esteem in my town, forced me to go ...

  2. Old Joe

    He was a well known face in town, Old Joe. Crazy as a bat, unwashed and unshaved, just walking along the streets talking to himself. He minded his own business and didn’t mind others ignoring him. The people at the church gave him soup sometimes,...

  3. Hello again

    It is now one forty-nine, which is quite the coincidence. since the original was written over a year ago. I am not a person of discipline or habit. I make it up as I go along. But still, I am drunk again, and I did have the best job in the world. When ...

  4. Stand up!

    Dear readers of the Atlanta Independent, I write this letter with great concern. I witnessed something that may be the undoing of our way of life in this beautiful country. I happened to be in Washington DC to cheer the president elect, but what I saw ...

  5. Photo with a friend

    He took a picture with it. I don’t know why, but I left my phone on that night. We were having Gin Tonics in industrial quantities, and my friend started drawing nasty pictures on a beermat. It started out as a tree, but the roots became legs, li...

  6. The one that stands alone

    Every day it was the same thing. Wake up, catch the first breeze of fresh morning air, before it got polluted with exhaust fumes. Looking out over the city. His view was marvelous, never boring. He really had the best view anyone could imagine. He love...

  7. The new guy

    The day was uneventful, just boring actually. I came in to work that morning expecting a day filled with just normal stuff. Well, as normal as a virologist might expect. Shit gets kinda crazy sometimes here at our lab. But nothing we can’t handle...

  8. Hello Reader

    It is almost one thirty, and i am a bit drunk, to be honest. So forgive me any errors, or bluntness. I am writing this just to be an asshole, I shure as hell am not looking for any kind of pity, compassion or whatever. This is going to be a drunk’...

  9. Man that you fear

    I’m watching a Marilyn Manson video, and i’m halfway inside a bottle of Jameson. The enter key is broken, or the return key, if you are known to use old computers, like the time they were still named after British raincoats. Those were glor...

  10. It was there

    After he picked up the phone he wished he hadn’t. It was his old college professor, Daniel Kendrith, urging him to come by his laboratory. He knew the man very well, for they had worked together for a long time. But the ideas Mr. Kendrith had sta...

  11. the thing he did

    Why had he done it? There was no obvious reason to do it, and there certainly was no pressure of any kind to do it. But he did. And he loved it. He hated himself for doing it, but he loved that he did it. All he had to do now was to deal with the conse...

  12. The Future, why bother

    Fifty years ago, Jim Bake disappeared for five days. No one noticed. Jim knew this, and laughed. He went over to a library, a little surprised they still existed, and asked the nice lady at the desk if they had digital newspaper archive. They had. He s...

  13. Eggs

    I eat my eggs in morning time they cost a dime and help my legs tap rhythm to my rhyme

  14. The new place

    It sure was a lovely day. He couldn’t believe it, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping. He decided to go out and meet some people. Just meet some strangers and talk to them. That was something he would never have done before. In that othe...

  15. Giving Thanks

    Ahh, it’s the time of the year again to give thanks. I have a lot of thanks to give. To the man in the grey suit, who helped me without me having to pay him. To the man behind the desk in the nice big building who decided that the hell my life h...

  16. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in ten words

    Oh my god, did you eat all this blotter acid? (this line is just for the 60 character rule…)

  17. Clean Kill

    That night inspector Franks saw an amazing sight. He never saw a crime scene like that. The body was still there, but there was something missing. Sense. The place didn’t make sense. The entire human had been cut up into pieces and thrown around...

  18. Mr. K.

    All he needed was a nice cup of milky tea on the porch, looking out over the lake, squirrels playing in the trees, birds nesting. Yes, especially the birds. They gave him a deep feeling of happiness. He kept to himself. He just liked to tinker on thing...

  19. Last Christmas

    Yeah. You knew all along. You wrote THAT song. You bastard. You left me hanging in the studio, trying to create the old bullshit popmusic, while you were brooding on your own little plan. You let me rot in a room covered in soundproof tiles, while you...

  20. Future

    When i kill myself i will be brought back with little cost to society…

  21. Last hope

    The thunderstorm lit up the city like a broken flashlight. The skyscrapers looked tired and miserable. No wonder. When the mob took over the police force things looked a bit brighter, but it did not work out. Still. Better than it used to be. This city...

  22. Light

    Click. Tschk. Tschk. The sound of yet another one trying get his lighter to work. This one sounds like a zippo. Probably Fred, he is the one with the money. Now where is my lighter? I can’t go aroud asking for a light again, they’ll try to ...

  23. Saturday

    As soon as he went out, i noticed a strange sound. Being used to life in the city, i am constantly bombarded with all sorts of noise, so i didn’t pay much attention to it. At least, i didn’t pay attention to it until i realised it was a vo...
