Fiction - Shortest - Two cases - Writing

Fiction by Vince

Extract from a Pages document entitled Writing Ideas, subtitled Stories
Title Page

Long, long ago, when televisions only came in two colours and being bad was never a good thing I used to make up stories. Actually I didn't, I made that bit up. I didn't actually make up stories as a child. Never did unless obliged to do so during my English studies.

No one who knew me then would have predicted that I would be like I am now. Except that the blond hair and chubby cheeks still remain, of course. But as a teenager and into my adulthood I have always harboured a desire to write. And fiction is the best place to start when you lead a fairly normal life and haven't discovered penicillin or captained your country in tiddlywinks.

However, the trouble with fiction is that it takes up too much time. And I've been fannying about with this site in it's various incarnations for too long to develop some of these ideas. If you feel like assisting (read 'sponsoring me') get in touch. So, read on and weep*.

Shortest - The shortest story of all. Except shorter ones. And longer ones with most of their pages missing. For more short stories why not link up to You never know whose work is featured.

2 Cases - A thriller. Or it will be when it is finished. Not so thrilling in it's present state but you'll get the idea.

Loch Ness - An incomplete story about the discovery of the Loch Ness monster. Commenced after seeing what effects could be achieved with the film Jurassic Park (Yes, that long ago). Sadly abandoned when the film Loch Ness appeared, starring Ted Danson. Must watch that someday.

Vincent - Story about a bike. With a great name. Or am I just biased?

*Its not that the stories are sad. Only the writer, for thinking any of these works is worthy of a Pulitzer or Booker . Or worthy of publication. Or even reading come to that.

Short Novel

A Novel By Vince

The shortest story of all time.

Written before Oct 2003

Definitely short

The most difficult thing when writing a novel is to start.

And now that I have I can finish.

The end.

Please note that due to the brevity, this story is not embedded in a downloadable file, saved in .pdf file format or zipped. It is also not available in paperback or at any bookstore, whether good or not. No translations have been made and copies are not available. The author would not like to acknowledge or thank anyone for their assistance. Frankly, he's embarrassed at even being mentioned.

Two Cases - Explanation

The fictional story reproduced below is just the start of a story about two cases.

You may note that it is a bit short. Positively stunted. Incomplete.

In time this story will be developed and you will see how the protagonist deals with the situation.

But I have a load of stuff do do and this may take some time. Unless of course you ask nicely for me to write some more of it.

It's literally up to you.

Two Cases

Fiction By Vince

A dark thriller. If you read it at night. Written before Oct 2003

Photograph of a green oval vanity case
Not the sort of case I imagined. Nor indeed the quantity thereof

A man, drowning his sorrows in a café overhears two criminals discussing the delivery of two cases. One contains 'the money', the other a bomb. He has an opportunity to steal the cases but hesitates, considering it too much risk.

Later he sees an on street chase between the police and the two criminals. During which he sees the cases dumped during a shoot out in an alley. When the area is clear and the criminals are taken safely into custody he checks around to see if anyone is about. Nobody around, but there is a street camera. It is damaged so he takes the cases and leaves.

The man is at a loss as to which case is the bomb. He does not tell anyone about his discovery and his anxiety spills into his love life.

Later the police return, see the camera and comment that it was damaged in the shoot out. They get a video image of the man with the two cases.

The criminals, on release, return to the café and in a chance comment the owner describes the man seen eyeing up the cases.

The chase is on.

The Writing Page

Pages and pages of potential plagerism.

The writer writing, probably

Welcome to the writing page of vinceunlimited. I've got so much stuff both finished and in development that this section needs to be sub-divided. I love writing when I get the chance and have posted some of my work from links here. You may ask why.

Firstly, I believe that I have interesting and/or funny things to say so to leave them festering on my hard drive is wasteful.

Secondly, these ideas may inspire others and any acknowledgement in this area would make me feel all warm and good inside.

Finally, I have this hope that someone will recognise a talent and offer me squillions to develop one of my writing ideas.

A word of warning though. Although I am happy for you to be inspired by my work, if you blatantly nick it I will be well pissed. Remember that I have posted these writings on this Website, in many cases years ago, so can prove ownership. If I see, read or hear any of my stuff without prior permission or, at the very least, obsequious acknowledgement I will pursue any rightful claim to any monies made. You have been duly notified.

In time this page will be fully populated with links to the words, stories, narratives, novellos, rhymes, poems, typing, writing, scribbling and feature articles. The engraving has only just commenced so please be patient and check back regularly.

Comedy - A strength of mine. That's a laugh. A few developed ideas here and some exciting new concepts there. That's the pitch anyway.

Fiction - No time to fill this section. I've been far too busy doing this web site. However, see the books in me. A few short stories too.

Poems - Frankly, just songs with no chance of finding a musician.

Screenplays - I'd love to do a full film screenplay. These are some ideas I have worked on. Commissions will be considered.

Songs - Most stories can be told in a few words so lyrics are an ideal medium for expression. And they can be written in an afternoon.

vQuotes - Not just lines and lines saying "I must not scrawl on the blah, blah, blah..." Valuable stuff here. If in doubt, ask an ad-man.
