    Words came and went and with plenty to vent but hesitations on meanings and plots took up toll.
    I eventually arrived at the conclusion that I might not be good at it after all . I have trouble containing my swaying ideas and they have trouble containing me.
    Do you consider this a story, Cacian? C'mon let's be real.

    I found a story I wrote a few weeks ago. Unfortunately it was over 200 words, so I revived your short story thread, Danik. Now to think of one only 100 words long.

    Reviving this 100 words story thread. One hundred words may be an ideal lenght for
    some.

    As subject for those who want to have a try I propose: "An intriguing event".
    Let´s determine a deadline after the first post.

    Last Day of Class

    Professor Nosital flips a coin. It bounces on the classroom desk and lands. “Heads!” He puts a mark under “H” on the blackboard.

    “The paranormal is just a random event.”

    He flips another coin. It bounces and lands. “Tails!” He puts a mark under “T”.

    “See? There are no ghosts.”

    He flips again. The coin bounces and lands. “Heads!”

    “See? There are no gods, no angels, no demons, no nothing!”

    He flips again. The coin bounces up and down and up and down and, besides being dizzy, it is so sick of listening to him it lands on its edge.

    Good story, Yes/No, one can imaginate the scene! The (probably)bored students. And suddenly the story is presented from the perspective of the coin.

    Let´s put up the last day of July as deadline!

    Thanks, Danik! 100 words is a more reasonable size.
