I have three ficlets up at http://ficlets.com/

Ficlets is a site where one person gets a story rolling by posting a short snippet (and I mean very short -- 1,024 characters maximum!) and then other writers keep the story going by adding prequels or sequels.

Y'all should head over there and add onto my ficlets -- or start your own! I'm there under the highly sneaky, and not at all guessable name: Rachel Swirsky.

Teaser: the tags for my stories include phrases like "designer babies," "corporate scams," "frustrated ambitions," "talent scouts," and "bride price." Two of them are listed under "bad parenting." Make of that what you will.

Hey Rachel/palimpsest,

The ficlet site is very cool.  I've created an account, and will play around more later - thanks for another great find.

Also, on a purely techy note - the OpenID concept is very cool and I hope other sites start adopting it.

Later
Stephen

I think a lot of the blogs use it for commenting purposes.
