Hookah Etiquettes 01 by Laxman Kymar

Another late-night writing session left the authors with two more interesting and unusual pieces. It seems that a little bit of exhaustion goes a long way into getting the authors to write outside of their comfort zones.

In The Tale of Squid Vicious, Jacob layers a tinge of absurdity on top of a murder mystery. The board is set from the very first sentence and it’s fascinating to see how the pieces move. It’s fun to predict the next moment but everyone is wondering how it ends.

  1. Squid
  2. Romance (as a genre)
  3. Yoga Mat

ZB  struggled at first with the prompts, unable to see where they interconnected. After five minutes of staring at a blank screen, Passing the Torch fell directly into his brain and onto the page. Each beat is exactly as he meant it to be in this real-world story about the tragedy of how history is beginning to repeat itself.

  1. “Ace in the hole.”
  2. Computer Coding
  3. Elderly Tattooed Man
