    The comp rules say one per member so we’ll stick with that - for this month’s comp. For another month, who knows?

    OK, Sept comp is closed and the scores have started to roar in! Next month we will write to a suggested technique, so get your ideas in about what that might be. For example, write a piece in the second person; write a piece from the POV of a well-known antagonist, anything. Have a think; suggest and second them below. Go!

    Suggest-

    Second person
    Rhyming prose
    No words more than two syllables
    "Don't fuck with writers, we will describe you." -unknown

    My blog- Hidden Content thoughts on trauma and healing through psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy

    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    Second:
    Rhyming prose

    Also:
    "write in rhyme"
    "Write A Story From The Point Of View Of A Dog/Cat/Piece Of Antique Furniture"
    "Write An Urban Fairytale"
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?
    "Sometime, in my sweet blindness" - Pushkin

    Second: Write an Urban Fairytale
    Suggest: Write a story in a fantasy version of a real historical period/event (fantasy WWII, fantasy Mongol Empire, etc)
    Dead by Dawn!

  8. #808
    Second both if possible: Write a story in a fantasy version of a real historical period/event (fantasy WWII, fantasy Mongol Empire, etc) and write an urban fairy tale.
    Suggest a story that incorporates tourism.
    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.
    The most difficult thing for a writer to comprehend is to experience silence, so speak up. (quoted from a member)

  9. #809
    Write a story in nothing other than dialogue (tags are acceptable, but nothing more)
    "If you don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree."

    "Perhaps I write for no one. Perhaps for the same person children are writing for when they scrawl their names in the snow."

    “Remember this: Dumbo didn’t need the feather; the magic was in him. ”
