DISCUSSION THREAD -- MARCH 2022 -- 75 Word Writing Challenge

@reiver33 Nice curve ball you have thrown at us. And Speculative Fiction genre is much appreciated.

I'm strapping on my gas-powered thinking helmet and grabbing my over-sized butterfly net. I'm going Muse Hunting. Hmm...I'd better take my shotgun. The Muse may not cooperate quietly. Perhaps my cattle prod too. BZZZZZT! (thud)
Thanks so much, Peter V - I appreciate the kind words.

alexvss added to the quality of the start, good story! :)
@Cat's Cradle .... Double Time .... A story which is really fills out a wonderful pun. Double time, indeed!

@alexvss .... The March of the Evil .... A story which almost shows the light bulb going off as someone thinks a new thought.
My initial reaction was to grab a pitchfork and have a low slung holster for my ray gun and go in search of River33, but being well dressed and prepared aside, I had second thoughts as an idea took shape. Well done River33, have a free pitchfork.
AnRoinnUlta marches to a biting spoof of dictatorial pretentions.

paranoid marvin marches to a sly look at promotional marketing.

Ashleyne marches to the darkest possible side of creativity.

BigJ marches to an ironic melding of past and future.

Great to see so many entries so early in the month. I thought I was going to struggle with coming up with an entry this month, but here I am already.
@Iwroteathing .... Closer to March .... IWAT presents us with a poem of equal parts beauty and sadness.

@Ashleyne .... The March of The Punished .... Ashleyne gives us a very dark story of crime and punishment.

@BigJ .... Beware the Ides .... BJ reminds us of the huge difference one word makes.

@Christine Wheelwright .... The Waste Land Revisited .... C.W. slips us a dark story where relationships give us insight into a truth about months in the northern hemisphere.

@Guttersnipe .... Only a Wee Bit o' Luck Will Do .... A story which leaves us wondering if the luck was actually good luck or bad.

@Astro Pen .... Shop till you drop .... A.P. points us to the world of unintended consequences.

*Let's see, so far we've averaged 3 stories a day, at that rate 69. If that happens I'm going to have to start charging for the time I spend doing this. :p
With a coy smile, Bowler1 strolls on to the stage, with a low slung RAY GUN and holster - no pitchforks tonight, it's back to pre-Covid-19 weapons of choice.

Ahem... I've posted my March entry and well done River33, it was on the money for me.

With a final wink, Bowler1 exits stage right.

You're right - for our record 75 entries (April 2012, ten year aniversary next month) where Karn and hopewrites doing the commentaries, Perp didn't even attempt it and I can't see either of them redoing the atteempt :giggle:

When I attempted the same I didn't even finish the first week - fortunate I didn't even start posting them, no?
