WTF is this?

This blog has "existed" for a while now, but I've not figured out what for yet. Now I've got it.

This is my new creative blog. Every day (or at least that is the current plan) I will and a new micro story to the blog. It could be a six-word-story, it could be a couple of "pages", it could be fiction, it could be an essay, it could be a weird mix of both.

Sometimes in these fictional realities I will use people from my real life. If I do they will be complete fictionalisations. For example one of my friends may be depicted as a mad scientist or a murderer or a pressed-flower collector. Please know that I'm just using them as characters (also I'm not going to be that harsh on them).

Also, I'd like people to add to the stories in the comments. What happened to Bill after the car crash? I didn't write about it but maybe you see him traveling to the French Rivera to meet a beautiful plastic surgeon who he has a desperate affair with or perhaps he went home and ate chips. Those bits can be up to you.

Now let's get to writing...

UPDATE: I forgot to mention, some of the stories will be linked others will stand alone. I'll let you decide which is which
