    Reading - Daily Story Project #4

    “Is your mom going to be home?” Paul said. His eyes darted under the brim of his well-worn baseball cap; his chubby stomach moved with his quickened breathing.

    “I don’t know but,” Kim lowered her voice, so low Paul could hardly hear her over the noise of the bus, “I hope not.” Her blue eyes sparkled and the sly smile caused Paul to smile back. The two teenagers were holding hands; she squeezed…

  2. Hugo - Daily Story Project #3

    The bedroom was warm even as a breeze blew through the open windows, rustling the curtains. Hugo sat on the edge of the bed and fumbled around in the dark for his underwear, putting them on and standing up in one swift motion. He found clothes to wear, and he cursed as he put them all on.

    Then he climbed out the window, landing among the rhododendrons.

    The backyard was dark and the other houses…

  3. Savoring - Daily Story Project #2

    When Rene went to pay his tab, a slip of paper fell out of his wallet, caught a breeze from the night air coming in, and flew behind the bar. Jeff handed it back to him, taking note of what it was, which was a lottery ticket, folded and faded.

    “That looks like it’s been in there forever. I assume it’s not a winner,” Jeff said.

    “Actually I don’t know. I prefer not to know. It’s like Schrödinger’s…

    After the final line of customers, attendees and registrants alike, were handled, the registration booth saw a lull. Sharon was the first to break the silence.

    “What are you doing when you’re not volunteering for events?” she asked of her younger co-worker, Peter.

  6. The Daily Story Project

    The Daily Post

    This weekend I was a volunteer at XOXO Festival, a conference put on by the two Andys, MacMillan and Baio, where there were tracks for Story, Social, Games, Film/Animation, and Tabletop. It was wonderful being even a small part of it, and by volunteering I was also able to partake.

    I could write so much about the awesome people I met and the presentations I watched, and the creative energy that…

If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist.
