Short arms and long pockets is the accusation thrown at the Scottish.

Being partly Scottish myself, I take umbrage at the suggestion!

Short stories and broad imaginations are what is needed here. So far this week we have several excellent entries. Check out the 100 Words tag for all the latest.

This week’s theme is:


Everyone has a sense of wilderness … desert plains, rugged forests and deserted islands spring to mind.

Where is your wilderness? How does it make you feel? Are you alone or accompanied? Is there anybody out there?

The 100 Word Story Contest is designed to stretch your imagination and indulge your vocabulary. How evocative can you be? How can you awaken the senses?

Poems are more than acceptable, as are multiple entries.

Is the contest open to everyone? I remember you were running a contest for new members before... I think.
