The Mighty Pen #2

The Mighty Pen writing contest is held every Thursday. I post the beginning of a story, you post your ending in the comments. I judge all the entries on style, voice, imagery, humor, and pretty much anything else I think is important. On the following Monday I present the winner with The Mighty Pen award and feature them on my blog.

See The Mighty Pen tab above for previous winners.

The Beginning



  1. What a fun concept. Seeing as it's my first time here I'll probably suck but it's worth taking a stab at it.

    "Halt!" I stabbed the block of cheese with my plastic sword. Nothing got past me. I walked around the block, examining the holes for damage and identifying any foul play. "Show yourself or suffer the worst!"

    I wasn't one to play games. My pirate hat fell in my face and for an instant my eyes missed any potential evidence of a trespasser. Adjusting the hat to lean farther in the bag I continued to search the cheese until I was rudely interrupted.

    "Theodore its time for bed." I trudged to my quarters, setting my sword against my night stand climbing into bed. My mother took the pirate hat off hanging it on the edge of my bed post "You're a silly little mouse."

    I hope that wasn't too long!! So much fun!
