Take Two, Part II

This week's sketch is wide open to infinite possibilities. It begins with a subway ride. Let's see where it takes us:

A person gets on a subway then nods off only to waken just before the appointed stop. When this person exits the station, the surroundings are completely unrecognizable. Individual then realizes he/she had not seen another human since getting on the train.
First stop is New Zealand with everyone's favorite Tincanman. With his 1000 words he has woven quite a poignant tale.

The masterful Velociman has proven yet again there is no task he cannot tame or bend to his will. His story speaks to men on a very different level. Damn.

Next stop is Sunshine! This tale is provided by none other than the delightful Margi Lowry. She hits it home to me with this one. Additionally, that would Margi with the fantastic news.

The Darling Blog Daugher Amelie has certainly outdone herself. She takes a walk on the psyche side with her story of love...lost. It's dark, but well done. I'm so proud of her!

Sistah Sadie churns the deep well that is her mind and imagination. She has caused me to think this morning. I leave you with a quote from her story: "Not many could endure the truth, even in other worlds."

Lady Silk does not disappoint. She captures a moment which I think each of us will one day face. She has captured it very well.

Take a bow folks, you have earned it, right along with my gratitude.


Bloggers are very much individuals, proud individuals with their own thoughts and words, as well as their own forum for displaying their talent and uniqueness.

While there are critics and naysayers wherever one goes in this life, I certainly appreciate the spirit in which each of these writers has so willingly participated in these fiction projects.

Call me naive, but I believe each of us, particularly those who participate, enjoys the written word and the expression of thought and feeling that can be evoked when those words are crafted well.

To my critic, this weblog is a hobby, not my life. I do this to express myself and for the interaction with my readers and fellow bloggers, many of whom have become real friends.

If you cannot see that, Rob, I pity you.

Some people just suck, and not in the good way either.

Curiosity question - Just how big is the "Pissed on by Aman" club?

I have never had the "pleasure" of meeting Rob face-to-face but I know one thing: That mutha LOVEs to start shit.

Don't let his crackery BS get to you, honey. (Not that it has....just sayin'.)

That's the rub, Chrissy. Your blog is a hobby, not your life....his isn't his hobby, it's his life. It's the only way the poor, pathetic, dried up old coot can get any attention.
Yup. He oughta know about monkeys...he's got enough of 'em dancin to his tune.

You're a very classy lady, m'dear!

Such a great round of players for both weeks so far!

Aman? Who the hell is that?

I always look forward to all of ya'lls writings Christina...it's always impressive and it seems like everyone ENJOYS themselves.

For the people who like to stir the pot..they'd have to admit that nobody likes to be on the receiving end of being made fun of or ridiculed. Keep up the great work honey and to all the other writers..some of us out here really dig it!

thank you, blogmom! you are an inspiration to us all. you're also probably the classiest lady i have the privilege of knowing!

and again, kudos to all of last week's and this week's authors!!

I think these writing projects are fabulous. I've seen this concept passed around now and again, but you're the only one that I know of that has actually made it work out.....and I can tell that everybody's having fun at it! Very cool! Keep it up...Christina and everybody!

Don't sweat your critic. I've noticed that when he's not vituperative, he's setting himself up as the end all, beat all of supreme wisdom and accomplishment in regard to whatever the subject du jour happens to be. Momma and Daddy probably never gave him much attention, so now he simply can't bear it unless he is the center of any and all attention.

He's just a lonely old fart who hasn't realized that his abusive nature is to blame for his having no interaction with others but for a few internet toad eaters.

Hey lady, sorry to hear about your friend and the tragic end to her life. I'm looking forward to the mini-story assignment for next week. I have an ending in mind, now just need to think of how we are going to get there! Don't sweat the small stuff (like you ever would!); every great writer always has critics.

As I would say, "I'm downtown with that"

Posted by: Sam at June 19, 2005 04:06 PM

Gee. Like someone else said - If you don't like my blog, don't read it.

I see a lot of comments, someone must be reading your blog.
