I've been writing a 50SoG fanfic.

The pounding makes me splurge my clunge gunge all over his blind butler. The unrelenting orgasms from his gristle missile raiding my herring hole made me come so hard, I began sweating like a fat slag in a disco. After having my calamari cockring plowed, he then proceeded to plow my black hole. I can't wait to consume the gentleman's relish from his chubstep. By now, my shame portal was trickling like Adele waiting for Greggs to open.


By 'writing', I of course mean 'using the 50 Shades Text Generator".

Your*





I was actually implying a relationship between imagination and the human psyche. Once you realize that all of your imagination is ultimately the core of what makes you "you", you truly realize your limits, which or course are only as far as you set them.

Wouldn't it then be more appropriate to say "You're imagination and are the limit"?

According to my research, fathers from Wisconsin often use phrases like "stop being weird", and "I'm gonna put my foot in your ass".

OK, my research extends to one episode of That 70's Show.

IDK about saying and phrases from those specific regions, but id you want I can share some phrases and saying that are common to the Midwest. IDK if thats helpful but I grew up on the plains and my tribe was originally from Wisconsin area.

I wrote this. can I have opinions on how to make it better? Any crits?


Finding My Way

I'm walking home from work and its been
six months since I seen my home and
I'm finding my way
I'm finding my way
six months since I seen my home
that time weighs on me
and I carry it alone.
six months out at sea
with nothing for company
but an old photo still of you and me
maybe I may have lost myself but
I'm finding my way
I'm finding my way
fog winding its weirding way
around my ankles and hands
slowly, like my steps I realize I cant stay
with each passing second I reach a surety
I'm gonna go home to my wife, tell her it's ok
I'm finding my way
I'm finding my way
I remember my last night at sea
the salty cold breeze dancing
on my skin, the colder cries of "Abaft the beam!"
the hard shudder of the hand of Poseidon
thrown forward so hard, "I can't see! I can't see!"
I try to find my tongue to say
"Be still!" but realize I cant see
yet, I'm finding my way
I'm finding my way
walking again, as blue lights drift about me
getting close now, just 'round the corner...
I find myself thinking "what will I say?"
can I find a way to make it ok?
I'm still finding my way
I'm finding my way
I'm thrown forward again, hard
can't find my bearings now I lose
touch with everything solid and hit the water, hard
cold, so cold, while blue lights drift around me
I'm blind
I'm not finding my way
I cant find my way.
but I cant really be blind, I think
as the blue lights drift slowly, leisurely, around me
its just the darkness of the sea as I start to sink
it is dark, but not still, as the men fight the waves and the fear
I know better than to struggle as the lights turn from blue to a red blink
(for thats when they signal each other, or so the legends say)
still in the darkness
I'm finding my way
I'm still finding my way
I'm walking home from work and its been
six years since I been home and
that time weighs on me, I carry it alone
six years out at sea with
nothing for company but
an old photo still of you and me
I may have lost myself here
at the bottom of the sea but
I'm finding my way
I'm finding my way

Derry, Maine AP-

Six years since the anniversary of the tragedy that befell this small New England town and the cause of the wreck of the Rhea, and deaths of the nineteen man crew remains a mystery. The Rhea, a commercial crab fishing boat had been returning from a six month voyage near the Arctic Circle, when the ship was somehow wrecked and overturned in open water and under clear skies. Speculation has ranged from a neglectful crew to methane gas bubbles rising from the ocean bottom....

oh shit i forgot this thread existed. this is my most recently published work, a (very) shortened online version of a piece that headlined my graduating class's magazine http://emergemagazine.ca/spreading-the-guv/

edit: much to my dismay, the editors were inexperienced and got a little revision happy so there are some slightly displeasing syntactical errors that were not my doing

*reserved for something I may do later if I feel my self wanting to*

I'm thinking about restarting the old short story comp machine but im not sure if there's even a market for that kind of thing anymore.

sounds good, man. I will give it some more consideration.
I kinda liked the competitions with a theme but idk...

I tend to bend the theme rules as much as possible anyway, but I think a limitation works better. It prolly guarantees more submissions with something like *anything about deep sea creatures* than *anything*
#29
right.
Im still pretty proud of my submission for that last competition. I think the competitive things really helps people (me, at least) strive to do their best when they otherwise wouldn't

Ayy, I won a short fiction contest at my college recently. They haven't released the annual issue yet, but if I can find a PDF on the internets, I'll post a link.

I think a microfiction contest would be cool. I'd (probably) participate. Max 500 words on a set theme or something.

I didn't know this thread was a thing.
#31
I don't even know if I can write flash fiction. I haven't read any that I liked, but to be fair they were all from unknown internet writers.


I'd be interested in reading that yeah do please

What I've read that I've liked has always been very imagery-heavy.* It's very difficult to delve much into a character with such a brief format and avoid melodrama.

edit* - like imagist prose almost

That looks interesting as hell, but it isn't working I'll PM you the error I got since I don't know much about coding and don't want to publicly info that shouldn't.

Stuff like what?


Yeah, it's not just character either, it's hard not to turn the whole thing into a setup with a single-sentence punchline. Even with non-fiction, you're either just providing information or a wizard.

Actually, was A Hunger Artist less than 1000 words? Kafka's the only one I can recall whose shortest shorts are great.
#35
Basically, these kinds of poems, where the emphasis is on creating a visual scene with language as precise as possible


so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.



The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.



Here's a neat introduction to the movement, too:

I'll have to check A Hunger Artist. It was brief, wasn't it? Kafka is kind of a wizard though.

Hey, thanks for helping me out! I enjoyed that. It's challenging which is awesome. It's hard to imagine its structure (I'm the kinda person that sees variations of experience and just get greedy and try to run through them all). There are very vague (for now) reasons as to why I like the last line. It just works viscerally.
