As many of you know, I found a computer microphone laying around the other day and I have been having a blast playing around with it. Unfortunately, it wasn't so fun trying to get it on this blog...but thanks to help from many of you, here at last it is! :-) It may take 10 minutes to load if you have dail up. :-( I'll try to figure out if I can get it faster. But hey, you can do other things while it loads. ;-)
This story was written as a joke, so it's a rather silly story, and of course I don't have any professional tools to work with, but I think you'll enjoy it. A few months ago I was working on a story for the Faith Writers challenge with the topic "Spring". I mentioned on the message boards that I was having trouble finding a name for my main character. Well, Deb, the challenge coordinator, teasingly posted a list of rather long and odd names. I responded that they were all female names, so she posted another list of male names and then put "Any Better?".
Now, if she had stopped there I wouldn't have thought much of it, but then she added, "Uh, that last one wasn't a name..." Well, then I just had to write something! So this story was born. It uses every single name she listed--no more and no less. ;-) It also uses the Spring theme in two different ways. Enjoy!
Oh, and to tie this in with my last post... Yes, this story is wacky, but check out the actual challenge entry I submitted that week! Spring Will Come Too Late LOL
