• The appropriateness of all sentences will remain the sole discretion of Scrine's tender.

Who can play?

• Anyone. Reading along costs nothing but time.

• Membership is required to post your own sentences. Joining is quick and painless.

• With membership comes the unique privilege of calling yourself a Scriner.

Neal would never forget that first kiss with Lucy; despite runny noses and chapped lips, it was wonderful; they were five years old.

OK. I’ll try razorhurst, but only if you try A. Lawless because I think he’s right up your alley.

I’ll happily read anything you point me to. But should I be picking up “Transgressions” from the link or “Complicated Creatures” or something else by Lawless? Or both?

Its the Walter Mosley story in the compilation, sorry my pointer skills are sketchy.

Oh, I’ll seek that one out immediately. I love Mosley.

After looking for the book/story for the last several years I finally gave up and paid Amazon $0.99 for a copy of Mosley’s story. Listening to it now. I do love Mosley so!
