Hi everyone. I’ve written a short story (roughly 1650 words) for Vocal’s New Worlds Challenge.
We had to use the opening line: Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. 

And the story is to be written as the first chapter of a novel or novella.

My story is HERE

I’d love to know what you think! And I would be delighted if you could read my competition entry and leave a like. To like and/or comment, you’ll need to sign in to Vocal, which is free to do.


Thanks for all your support! Hugs 🤗💕🙂

  1. What a great intro to a story you may be able to turn into a book! I tried to ‘heart’ it, seeing as I did sign up there, but can longer 🙁 . But before I still couldn’t comment, and now I can’t even Heart it. <3

    • It might be worth contacting Vocal customer service? Sorry you’re having issues with them. Thanks, Debby! 💕🙂

  2. Enjoyed this. I hearted it. But Art might have been showing mercy. The Canlores sound horrible.

    • They sure do. Who knows what might happen next?… 😉 Thanks, Judi 💕🙂
