Forty – A 100 Word Story

1 min read

Once again, I’ve entered this story into the Weekly Challenge. Feel free to stop by there and vote for my story; you can also read the other entries and hear them there. If you just want to hear mine alone, the MP3 is here.

In this world, lawyers are real predators. Feral copyright attorneys hunt the streets. Outside, a patent infringer’s gunship ravages a corporate skyscraper. The building rumbles, preparing to launch into low orbit.

I shake my head. The scene fades as I toss the paper – my fortieth attempt at a believable world – into the wastebin.

I write again, and the world fills in around me. Giant insects buzz, a velociraptor screeches, and I quickly throw that paper aside.

I pick up my pen again. This time, I write you. Your world, your cities, your people.

I’m not sure if I like it.
