5. Why am I interested in short stories?

Flash Art

Who can paint summer in fifty brushstrokes and three colors? Brushes and palettes clattered throughout the warehouse, artists bent on a challenge beyond mind-numbing portraits and caricatures. It didn't pay the rent, but it kept us sharp.

Hours passed. Still a blank canvas. The judges grew impatient. "The competition's only until three." I took no notice. Someone won. I don't know who.

Alone in a warehouse. Brush on paper - a broad, confident stroke. I smiled.

It would be nice to have a tag that turns off implicit wikiname linking...

I think this is a pretty cool idea, but I want it inside Emacs, not as an external application - not even if I can use Emacs as an external editor. I remember running across something vaguely related - some form of category browser.

Nice, but I'll only use it if it works within Emacs. ;)

Another new character. Now level 11 and camping near an altar. Have picked up a couple of magic markers, blessed two of them, wrote ?oCharging. Recycling spellbooks: wrote +oIdentify and +oCM on the same spellbook. Have Magicbane, hope to get spellbooks off god.

So far so good. Potions and scrolls in short supply, though.
