Proi LOVED writing it

ConsNot good enough to make me an author :(

Chapter one "That's it, George!" cried Mack Barber, smiling so broadly that his jaw was threatening to lock. "You're nearly there!" George Carter, his chubby cheeks so full with bread that they were threatening to burst at any moment, nodded with understanding, and with one quick movement began...

“The Marino Mystery”

published 11/11/2008

ProFor your opinion

ConsFor your opinion

Hi, everyone. I am really into writing stories at the moment - I would really like to be a writer. Probably no hope but this is a story I wrote when I was ten. I have like ten million saved on my computer and when I saw this on ciao i thought i would put one of my earliest on. This is only the...

“Extra Curricular: Chapter 1”

ProSaved me writing a review

ConsYou'll see...

I started writing a novel when I was a supply teacher/unemployed, a few years back. I got to about 28,000 words, decided it was mostly shit, then scrapped the biggest part of it and started again. Only, then I got a job and soon afterwards a computer, and all I seem to be able to motivate myself...

“The chair”

published 15/05/2004

Pro?

Cons??

The day was a cold one. The boy sat hunched painfully in the corner of his dark cell. His name was John, or Yusuf as his father and the hardliners called him. He thought back on the twelve short and for the latter part unhappy years of his life. He had been born on the forty-fourth anniversary of...

“Fade to Black”

published 30/08/2004

ProMy first attempt at fiction writing. Like, ever!

ConsIt's a bit dark, isn't it? And is it any good?

When it became apparent that my 100th review, and my 2nd Ciao Anniversary/Birthday were likely to coincide, it became equally apparent that I'd have to do something a little special to mark the occasion. I took "something special" to mean "something new", and this is what that meant to me...

ConsNot sure.

Most of my friends on ciao know that I want to become a film director when I'm old enough, but I do also have a passion for writing. Over the years I have written quite a few screen plays, and maybe if I do well with the directing, I might be able to bring these screen plays forward and make them...

“Delusion”

published 21/04/2007

ProThe first chapter of my book

ConsNot sure if I can swear

Ok, I'm kind of new to the Ciao cafe side of things, but I am currently writing a novel and thought I would share with you the first chapter. I apologise in advance for any offensive language, if anybody is offended please let me know and I will censor it. Thank you for reading. An ashen sky...

“Domestic Violence”

published 05/06/2006

ProUm... first draft.

ConsFIRST DRAFT!

(Sorry for the crappy title, but I didn't want anyone to read this and have "triggers" or whatever...) THE LIES You know, the constant lies I had to tell were the worst. I was forced to fabricate accidents, feigning clumsiness, and to suffer the causetum of them. You'd assume I would feel shame...

“Desperate Times”

published 15/05/2006

ProMy first foray into the world of the novel

ConsProbably going to take a while to get through!

Recently, a friend let me read her book. She'd spent months on it, and I have to admit to being both impressed and jealous, as I'd been saying for ages that I wanted to have a go at writing one. Anyway, I was inspired, and have started one for myself. This is the opening portion, and I figured...

“My Angel Mission.”

published 24/08/2004

Prothis is some of my writing, you might like it.

Consthis is some of my writing, you might hate it.

I have had a flurry of creativity. My 69th review was met with such enthusiasm here I am again, offering up one of my imagination babies to the critics here at ciao. This is something new for me, a completely non- romantic, non-erotic story and I hope you enjoy reading it. I am really nervous now...

“Storyfish”

published 11/02/2004

Proyou tell me...

Cons?!

Storyfish She has her hands in the goldfish bowl again. Every morning, she reaches podgy, damp, sticky fingers into the box, pinches together a few fragile flakes and sprinkles them into the water; carefully she dips in her fingers to wash off the remaining crumbs. The fish shies away and then...

published 26/11/2005

ProOwn Story

ConsMay relate to current feelings on terrorism. Short

Ive finally decided to put this up. I wrote it a short while ago for a piece of english coursework, where it was given an A* level, so I thought it should be of high enough quality to go up here. So enjoy. ----------------------------------------------------- Understanding Dreams...

ProGhosts, spies, children, death-chairs

ConsA heavy Enid Blyton influence

So, hi and all that. I used to write here a while ago, like maybe a few months ago? No, it's cool if you don't remember, I wasn't really any good. I've been away for the past whatever length of time because I had to write dissertations and essays at university, and ponder the potential for...

So, what is it about? To all who read this, I should probably add a description of what my short story is about before you launch into it.. I have been a lover of writing short stories and poetry for many years now, and am still at the level where I keep constantly striving to write something...

Note: This is a short story which has been based on a factual event, the sinking of the Titanic. It is designed to show people what the “middle” class of people witnessed, as in nearly all the stories about the Titanic, the emphasis was placed on the First and the Third class section of Titanic...
