From the Horse's Mouth

really short stories

Posted in stream of consciousness by theskinhorse on September 29, 2009

I love creative writing challenges. I usually wind up going to Writing Prompts, but this morning I found a post that posed an equally fun challenge.  It’s a contest to write a story in ten words or less. I found that it forced me to be concise and witty without the added verbiage. I am re-posting mine because, yeah, I can be a little vain at times. (Seriously though, I think mine are pretty good… entertaining at the least.)

I think it is important to update the all-too-common tale that pushes specific gender roles, sexual orientation and common misconceptions.

The knight completed the rescue.
“You killed George!” Princess wept.

Help wanted: ‘Save princess from dragon! *female champions preferred.

*****

Save Queen from dragon! Apply within (gay knights only).

*****

Princess had to choose. Frankly, she knew the dragon better.

*****

Princess had to choose. Dragon smirked. Yeah, Stockholm Syndrome.
