Playground — the world brings a lot of memories to all of us. For some, it might still exist, some remember it as a foundation to some mall. Ah! And I once asked an actor friend of mine and he replied,
“The world is not a stage, but my playground, dear! I play around with minds of people, get into their heads to polish my character.”
And I thought, “What a unique perspective indeed!”
That day, I realized that playgrounds can take a variety of shapes and sizes. For an artist, it is his canvas or sketch pad; for an analyst, it is the MS Excel sheets; and for someone like me, a full-time writer, the playground is my notebook or my blog and my toys are my pen and laptop.
So, this is me, playing on my ground, with my rules, and my toys, AND I’d like to share my recent games with everyone today.
Me and my dear friend, Yuimi Vashum, had been working on curating loads of short stories into an eBook each of which end with a bang!
I mean, they are twisted stories. Some of them are spooky, some funny, some simply amusing, but all of them are twisted, like our silly minds. My overstretched rectus femoris (upper thigh muscle) and aching bum are screaming for help, saying, “Just release it and relieve us!” And I’ll do just that now.
Presenting our first anthology, completely crowd sourced and totally replicatable collection of short stories, TWO HUNDRED !
I agree, some of them are babies of our brains, but we’re generous souls, giving it all away 😉
Coming back to the Blog Chatter group prompt, I think, my mind could also qualify as my playground, where my thoughts keep on jumping, lunging and bumping into each other. On second thoughts, that would be the playground of my thoughts and not me. On third thoughts, aren’t my thoughts mine? Well, that’s a lot of fodder for thinking for this night.
While I take a break from writing, you download this eBook and enjoy all the short, crisp tales.
Wish you a karaari read!
P.S. If you happen to like the read, feel free to share it, print it and share it, take screenshots and then share it. Or review it, may be? Basically, just spread the word.
P.P.S. I’m on a lookout for more such stories for its second edition, Four Hundred. If you happen to have any, send them across to me and I’ll credit them this time. 🙂
Over and out!
