Your doing pretty well, at least you have a good imagination for
interesting stories.  In time you will learn how to improve the
telling, and writing..

One can gain experience by reading popular books you like. Also check forums
where many people talk about books they like and why they do..

Some googling should be fruitful..   Sounds like another good word. "Fruitful"

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

That's great, but it's not story. :P

Psych, what do you mean? Old Rabbit, I am working on your story, Mylo, once again you have been almost ignored with your word. I really dont mean to, its just that you guys come up with interesting words. But that is okay. I love a challenge. Still thinking on those stories.

:D Okay! Here we go. For Pyscho, a story about gems.

   Twisp floated in the dark mine, admiring the gems. Gems of every variety, from diamonds to rubies to sapphire, and emeralds, covered the cavern. He flitted around them, admiring their beautiful colors and patterns. Occasionaly he would call up a ball of ghoul light, just so he could watch the patterns the facets cast across the floor of the dark cave. They were the only thing that could hold his attention. He loved each color, loved their crisp faces, and love the noise they made. So much nicer than those nasty screams. He flowed around, occasionaly scratching the surfaces with a claw to produce those beautiful rings. He would do anything to protect his precious gems. Anything...
Well I'm saying it's a nice piece of literature, but you're inferring a backstory that you don't expand on. A story needs a plot! :P

The story "Gems" Seems more like the ending of a story.

It would help to know who or what Twisp is.

Perhaps he just finished defending the cave.  Or
does he live there.  Perhaps Twisp is a dragon protecting
his treasure.

Hope this helps some.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

I am very sorry, but I was having trouble with the story. Twisp is the ghost of a man who got lost and died in the caves, and was brught back by the ambiant magic that the crystals had stored. He remembers nothing of his past life, nor does he care to. He only cares about the gems. Twisp doesnt really live, but he dwells in the cave, and he doesnt notice time passing. I am sorry you didnt like my story Psycho.  :( Thank you for the honest feedback.

Don't worry about having problems with a story idea.
Rewrites are part of story writing, all good authors do
them multiple times.

If your stuck sleep on it. There isn't any big hurry.

Here is another word for you. "Volcano" 

Keep up the good work Blackrose13.  :orbunny:

In this situation, you should just write anything that comes to mind concerning that word, even if it sounds rediculous. This short story thread is intended for practice and fun, and whatever you write, it'll be a story for that word. Maybe you can think of a time where you first learned about that word and what you thought of it...then make a story from those ideas.

okay, here is a word for microscopic. Sorry it took so long Mylo.

   Skrin hefted the toothpick, watching the ant crawl along the ground. His spider mount, Rachia, shuddered under him as she prepared for the kill. He tightened his hold on the reins. Ants were dangerous alone, but they were rarely alone. After a quick last scan he rushed forward. The ant whirled towards him, its mandibles clicking ominously. He hurled the toothpick, and it impaled the ants chitinous hide. It made a noise like a punctured balloon, just as Rachia sunk her fangs into it. It thrashed and wriggled, but they held on tight. When it finally died, he sighed in relief. Fire ant stings made the best spears, and they were almost unbreakable. As he mounted Rachia, she shuddered and tensed. "What is it girl?" Then he looked up, a ring of fire ants watching them both. He swore. They had attracted the rest of the colony.

Oh how frightening! Insects give me the creeps...  :o  But hey! You wrote a great story for this word, and quite unexpected, too. So here is another word for you: fireworks. Good luck! :)

I agree, you did a fine job on the story about Microscopic.

How about the word "Rose" 

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

Fire works will be interesting. Probably set in china. Old rabbit, thank you, I have a great idea for a dark rose story, but it still needs some tweaking.

Kay everyone, sorry ive been gone so long. Keep the words coming. Heres rose.

   Jacob slammed the door and kept running. She coulndt be following him, she was dead. He had run her over himself, then dumped the body in the river. Yet that face, those eyes, that hair. It could be no other. "Jacob, why are you running from me? Im not mad." He stopped, turned as the door swung open. She still looked alive. If anything, she looked better dead. "y..your not?" She shook her hair, her long black hair swinging gracefully. "I love you, why would I be mad." But her eyes betrayed her. They were not mortal eyes. They reflected stars he couldnt see, and he was afraid. He stumbled backwards, tripping over his shoes. "Im not mad Jacob,...I am furious"
   John looked at his partner. "Whats the story?" His partner rolled his eyes. "Mom said she came down and found him dead in his room." "Anything else?" "Yeah, they found a single black rose in the corpses hand."

Sorry everone, that story really sucked. But I was having writers block big time.
