I’ve been thinking

Gotcha! You think I am thinking about Thinking…? But actually it’s about something completely different.

I have been thinking if anybody would be interested in a Story Club? Just think about it for a moment. I mean we all love stories right and there are probably a gazillion stories out there in the world, which we will never read or even get to know about. How sad is that? Suppose somebody brought a special story to your notice, explained its nuances, shades, metaphors, techniques wouldnt that be awesome?

So I wondered about floating a story club – a short story club if you like where each week one story could be read, discussed, analyzed – wouldn’t that be fun? Wouldn’t you like to be part of such a club?

So, if there are any takers, this is how it would function (I told you I have been thinking).

Interested participants would:

  1. Mention the name of the chosen story  and the date (any Wednesday) of posting (beginning 15th June) in the reply box below.
  1. On the designated date, put up a post (on his or her blog) highlighting the uniqueness, underlying theme, message or anything else that may be of interest.
  1. Ping back the URL here so that we can all hop over to read, chat, interact and broaden our horizons.
  1. The participant should announce at least a week in advance the name of the story and preferably one that is freely available online to enable maximum participation.
  1. Others may also put up posts on their blogs pertaining to the same story (with a ping back here to let us join the party)
  1. In case the story is not available online please provide a brief synopsis before writing about it.
  1. Interested non-bloggers (ahaa I got my eye on you) can mention the name of story and date and mail me the post. Full credit is assured.
  1. And finally, just in case there are no takers, I will start reading the short stories on my own.

So what do you think? Suggestions, questions and comments are welcome – in fact eagerly awaited. I hope you wont disappoint me (besides I am holding my breath)…


For the readers of Moonshine, here’s Chapter 63. Before you rush off, have a look at Calvin and don't forget to let me know what you think - "I am in" would also be great😀
