It’s Tuesday, so it must be time for another short story inspired by the Benedict Cumberbatch name generator. In case you’re new to this idea, B. Cumberbatch (actor) has a silly name that inspired someone to devise a generator to create similarly silly names, and I thought I would use it to spark some story ideas. I’m posting them here in lieu of any more interesting or relevant content, for you to peruse or ignore at your discretion. First I told you of Timothy Clavichord, and last week it was Syphilis Crumplehorn. Today you can read about the unfortunate Wimbledon Commonwealth.
Once Upon A Time there was a Benedict Cumberbatch name generator, and the names it generated were so good I decided to write a series of stories based on them. Last week I told the tale of The Incurious Timothy Clavichord, and today tis the saga of Syphilis Crumplehorn.
It’s been a while (last time I entered being March), but this month’s Pictonaut prompt inspired a story. Why not read it over breakfast, and think about it whilst you enjoy the weekend…
The shortest night of the year means a Merry International Short Story Day to one and all! I have written a little story in celebration. it is about a bee. Sorry, the text on the image is hard to read in places unless you look at it quite closely (I was going to do an illustration rather than a photoshopping but didn’t have time, alas), so I’ve put a transcript after the jump.
