Archmonarch Posted May 25, 2005 Share Posted May 25, 2005 Well with the rash of art threads, I thought I'd throw my own hat into the ring. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to the contrary, I lack all skill in the visual medium; my talent seems to lie in the literary arts. Thus, I propose to post a portion of my current writing. Feel free to leave commentary, positive or negative, as all critiques help. I must warn you, my favored genres are sci-fi and fantasy, so such will my writing contain. And please if you have any idea as to how to improve the general concepts of my piece, say something!

In the beginning, he had been a simple scientist working on his first independent research project with a single assistant. The lab was typical, if better stocked than most, being of corporate sponsorship. Bottles of all shapes, sizes, and configurations filled with carefully labeled but still mysterious liquids lined the dual counters, east and west. Along one wall rested a complex of perhaps twenty cages, each filled with a single rat or rabbit, named for expediency And I find it kind of funny I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying Are the best I've ever had Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
