HELP!!!!!

I'm writing a poem about fanfiction after going to a reading of a poet who wrote a whole book on the first year of her daughter's life. I figured--hey, I can write about what I know. Fic!

And, as I want this to be a good peom, regardless of the subject matter, I was hoping some fellow ficcers and other writers could be of help when the time comes to edit it.

Any takers?

Title: An Experiment Gone Awry 
Author: Heather 
Genre: Sci-fi? 
Rating: 
Warning: 
Scene: Koch lab 210 

Narrator: Three average biology majors are just performing a tough lab. Things are going well when all of the sudden… 

Student 1(Kent): *Yells in pain* 

Student 2(Dana): What’s wrong Kent?!? *Face full of platonic fear* 

Kent: I just cut my finger on this Petri dish. 

Student 3(Josh): Well was anything in it? 

Kent: *Face calms down, now just concerned* I don’t think so, I was just pulling it down to use for diluting my experiment. 

Dana: Oh! Okay well I’ll get a bandage for your finger. Josh: Well since you’re alright let’s finish this thing and eat dinner, if you really call Harper’s food, food. 

Narrator: As the students continued working a strange noise could be heard coming from Kent’s stomach. 

Josh: Wow Kent, you must be hungry. 

Kent: No… I don’t know what that was… 

Dana: *Frightened face* Kent! What’s happening to your face?!? 

Josh: Holy cow I think he’s experiencing full body mitosis!!! 

Kent: What?!? 

Dana: Oh no! He’s going to transubstantiate into something else! There must have been something else in that Petri dish! 

Narrator: At this moment Kent can be seen withering in pain and collapses to the ground. --- 10 minutes later --- 

Dana: Oh my god. Oh my god… 

Josh: I’m calling for help now!!! 

Kent: *Gets up slowly while laughing slightly maliciously* No one’s calling anyone. 

Dana: *Passes out* Josh: Dude what’s wrong with you??? You made Dana pass out. 

Kent: *With Glib* Who cares if I made that girl pass out? 

Josh: What do you mean “that girl”? She’s your best friend, practically your counterpart! Who are you??? 

Kent: Who am I? Well I’m definitely not that weak girl’s counterpart, that’s for damn sure! Heck it’s worth nothing listening to you even speak! 

Josh: *Runs over to protect Dana from now crazy Kent* 

Kent:*Laughs maliciously again* How bout I try a biology experiment on the two of you? I’m sure an easy bisection could be in order. You know I can be quite hospitable when I want to be. *Grins* 

Josh: *Spits on Kent* Never you crazy!!! I don’t even want to know what was in that stupid Petri dish! 

Dana: *Wakes up and focuses in on Kent* 

Josh: You’re awake! 

Dana: *Talking to Kent* You nefarious man, I hate you! 

---The End --- 

Okay, since smartygirl39 was the only one to respond, she wins by default!

Okay, since I had no idea how to actually delete my own community, it looks like it stays. Also, I'm opening it up to anyone who wants to join. Spread the word!

Also, I'm changing the format a little. Here's how it goes:

1. Every week I'm posting a list of 10 words.

2. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to do something with those words. It's your choice what to do--poem, story, fan fiction, drabble, scene, dialogue, etc.

3. Post what you wrote here.

4. Then we vote on who used the words the best. It will be in poll form.

5. The winner gets to pick 5 words for the next challenge.


*********


That is just the weekly thing. It's still open to asking for feedback, finding beta's, brain storming, or getting any sort of writer-y attention you need/want. I hope this revives the site, since I'm really sad to see it go out of use.

I know I've posted a lot lately, but I couldn't help it for this one, honestly!

I've just submitted a short story to an online magazine called Dark Fire. There's no monetary prize for getting chosen to be in the issue, but I figured that since I've never, ever been published anywhere, I ought to start at that kind of place.

Oh my god, I can't believe I just did that!!!!!

What am I thinking???

curious

current mood: curious

I bought a poetry and fiction magazine today, and I read an article about a publishing company called Featherproof Books. They're pretty new, and they seemed really cool....

...so I emailed them. I asked if vampire fiction (what I tend to write more than anything else) is the kind of submission they care to receive.

....am I completely nuts if they say yes, and I send something in??? I fully expect to receive a big fat rejection slip if I do....but at least then I can say that I've tried.

O_O

Now I'm nervous.
