Great short story writing tips -- and More Ukulele!!

Nah. That's the U-Bass I have, a Bass that's the size of a baritone ukulele, with poly-strings. That's the dark, deep god of ukes. ;-)

That's like the god of all ukuleles.

It's an 8-string tenor ukulele, in case anyone is wondering. :-)

Gunwallace is a pretty good mini-guitar player! It's because playmobile arms won't reach all the way around the body of a full sized one. :(

heh, Ozone singing... priceless. One bit of writing advice I was given was to start a scene as late as possible and to finish it at the earliest opportunity, I think it works well for short story writing. You don't need in depth backgrounds you need only allude to things, which gunwallace does excellently.
