There’s been a lot of new Domers around recently!

I don’t know anything about any y’all, and you probably don’t know much about the rest of us. Let’s change that!

This week, I’d like you to write a story that is inspired by your life somehow. Maybe it’s about your vocation, or your neighbourhood, or a hobby that isn’t writing. This doesn’t have to be autobiographical and you don’t have to be the protagonist, but I want to get a sense of who you are and what you’re about.

… and because this is still a creative writing competition, I’d also like you to add something fantastic to the story. Maybe your latest client is a goblin. Maybe your favourite cafe is actually on a spacecraft being chased by space pirates. It’s up to you — but if you want it to be up to me, I’ll offer flash rules on request.

In short: give me something real, but also give me something entirely strange. Easy!

You’ve got 1500 words. No erotica, poetry, google docs &c.

If you want more words I will accept crits in exchange for word bounties! 100 words per crit, feel free to crit any stories from previous weeks, crits should be posted before judgement is rendered, max total wordcount is 2500. Remember, in Thunderdome, the only thing better than writing is critting other people’s writing.
