    I'm currently doing a creative writing course at my local college.

    One of the assignments is to write a short adventure story.
    I've cranked out a 5 page mini saga over the last couple of weeks, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

    The tale is set on the fictional 'Stingray Island', and it tells the story of a small squad battling against the odds to reach an undisclosed objective.
    Along the way, they must overcome various trials: hostile natives, the elements and the harsh unforgiving island environment.

    Anyone here interested in giving it a read?
    If so, let me know in this topic, and if I get enough encouragement, I may be moved to post it here in bookworld.

    If you'd like to post it, go ahead. I can guarantee it'll be read, although perhaps not responded to.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Please do, although you should be prepared for some (constructive) critisism from folks. I'll certainly have a go at reading it.

    It's sometimes good to get other peoples views on things too

    Okay.. I'm encouraged enough.

    I'll post The Stingray Island Job over the weekend, once I've re-drawn and uploaded the map that accompanies the story. I also want to do a bit of final 'polishing' before the story goes online.

    I'm quite prepared for (and tbh was totally expecting) any critisism you folks may have. That's fine with me as long as it remains constructive. Any comments along the lines if "I h8 ur storey it sux0rs" will just be ignored or mocked mercilessly.

    Other things:
    The tale mainly focuses on adversity and the adventure component.
    The brief was to draw a map with various landmarks, and have the story take place there and hand in the final product in 2 weeks.

    I'm a rather slow story writer, so as a result, the characters are very sketchy. Some of the scenes are a bit rough too.
    I know it already. I was working to a deadline and those aspects were not a requirement at the time. Blame my teacher for that.

    Just as long as folks are aware of those points, then all is good.

    Oh, and I hope you like the surprise ending too.


    and now.....
