    I don't think this has been done before so I thought I would give it a try.

    I'm asking you to submit a section of your english coursework (if you still have it on your computer) or any piece of descriptive writing that you are particulary proud of.

    I WILL SEND THE WINNER £1,000,000 OVER PAYPAL

    Rules and Tips:

    No plagiarism.

    Keep it short and sweet.

    If it's bloody it's usually bloody crap. You're welcome to prove me wrong though.

    No stories.



    I'll probably end up choosing the winner or I'll make a poll to decide if this thread gets popular.

    The bullet shot through the wall, leaving her collapsed on the floor. No blood, no scream, only shock. He had done this on purpose, because three hours wait didn't do much for his levels of entertainment, and he had better plans for this one. Smiling to himself, he dragged the unconscious woman by her ankle into the nearest room where he left her and exited the room to search the house. On his short journey down the long, narrow corridors, in the large rooms and under the leaking ceilings, he found various things he considered useful for his twisted misogynistic desires for this job: a poker, an old rusty saw and an iron. He made his way down the staircase and back into the room where he would carry out these warped ideas of fun. He arrived, humming to himself as he lay down his 'instruments' in order. "Hot, then cold, then blunt, then sharp," he sang to himself, repeating it like a mantra. He jolted as the woman thrust her fist into t he back of his head. Turning around to see what hit him, he fell back as she threw all her weight onto him. Struggling from underneath, gasping for air, he reached for his liquid nitrogen bottle. He had to be quick – he wasn't used to panicking situations like this one. He quickly threw it onto her elbow, which caused her to scream loudly and grab hold of it. Now or never, he thought, as he poured yet more all the way down her arm. "You think you could get the better of me?" he laughed, as he picked up a poker.

    Yelping in agony, the woman scrambled to the far corner of the room. He followed her. The arm will have gone now, he thought, as he pierced her arm with his poker. Much to his amusement it fell off, leaving her in yet more agony. From the painful howling, he could make out the words, "kill me." He thought it was too soon, but decided that his three-hour's wait had been repaid. Returning to his inventory of instruments, he picked out the rusty saw. "Not long now," he calmly said to the woman, "not long now."


    I swear, I must have been pretty ****ed up :p:

    Not putting any of my writing online, could damage any chance of it being published. Sad, but true.

    Really?! Must have used a dodgy currency site:

    http://coinmill.com/GBP_ZWD.html

    A country where penny sweets cost $370,000,000 - it's terrible :no:
