Message to Ferret, Bilby, Araminta, and You Know Who You Are …

The Boa’s Chariot competition staggers on …

1,000 words, more (but no more than 2,000) or less, in a story that contains a compromising situation. The following words should be included: “bats” and “pungent”.

Words or pictures in whatever form suits you.

Deadline midnight GMT (01.00 am BST) on 10 August 2010.

  1. Here I am, damp from Cornwall with all its sea mists and stuff. (Hair curled wildly leading to regretted incident with the scissors in the mirror….) and now I see I have two days to pull a story out of the sou’ester.

  2. Afraid Backside has declared this month an Official Holiday so Slack Bottom is closed for the duration. Unless the Muse strikes elsewhere – and fast – there’ll be no vapid verses this time.

  3. I have a work in progress, I hate it.

    Thanks for the reminder, it has now made things even worse. Harumph.

    I will see what I can do Jaime. 🙂

  4. Jaime,

    A summer’s day with bats and balls;
    The pungent whiff of smoking;
    Medad’s broad smile, Memam’s calm voice;
    A picnic lunch, we’re spoilt for choice;
    A few late frogs still croaking.

    That was life long, long ago……..

  5. You may hate it, Ferret, but I may love it. You never know.

    Feeling nostalgic, Janus? Very nice. You’re in!

  6. Jaime,

    How delightfully diplomatic of you.

    I have tried to get it done, but work is piling up and it honestly stinks like Ghandis flip flop. I am furrily furious because I have spent a large amount of time on it and I just can’t get it to work, the problem I think is that it should be a 5,000 word story and does not take kindly to abridgement.

    I am afraid I will have to miss this round, I simply have too much to do. Sorry everyone. 😦

  7. Jaime

    Can’t get anything to work at all (sob!) and now the Furry One has dropped out (sob!). I feel really guilty (boo hoo!) Sorry. 😦

    It would be nice if I had a sudden inspiration this arvo, but it seems unlikely.

  8. You can make it as long as you think necessary, Ferret.

    Oooooh. A sudden amendment to the rules!
