In the real world


I've been struggling with an idea the past few days; ok..I've been struggling with a lot of ideas these days, but this one was different. It was a story I wanted to post here and I've been worrying sick trying to get it down correctly.

No, it's not horror. And that's exactly my point. There was a time when I'd churn non-horror/non-crime stories with nary a care, and without much thought either. The ideas just flowed. But now.. it's different. And I feel a tad sorry for them. Guilty even (just about).

Some of you've read these stories of mine, liked it, preferred horror, and then some. So here's what I'm gonna do. I know how painful it is to dig archives, especially when you don't know what you're looking for. So here I'm inserting links to some of these old ones. And while you guys read, I'll try and come up with a new one.

I hope.

Gale Mein Khich Khich

Duck...?

Rain, Rain, Don't Go Away
(This one's been repeated twice, in fact. How vain can one get?  But hey, I made an important change in the ending. So there.)

Do let me know what you feel about these.

The gale mein khich khich one really got me. I thought now something or someone will pounce from the dark. Hilarious....mazaa aa gaya.

And I think you triumph in this type of story telling too, not just horror :)

Privy: :) :) Thank you!

B: Definitely do, sir :)

PV: :P hehe.. thx.

Revacious: Thank you so much! Yeah, never really thought from that POV.. who knows, maybe another collection. Hmm? :)

GBTP: You know J, there are certain words that make a simple task seem like a huge accomplishment. 'Triumph' did just that; thank you so much. It's a real booster. :)

Nisha: Heylloo.. long time! Oh, you bet they are. Especially the 'laughing' ones.. Welcome back. :)
