Scene Stealerswritetodone é um site recheado com artigos sobre a arte da escrita. Tem uma secção intitulada Scene Stealers que funciona como uma espécie de workshop de escrita: dão uma frase e tem que se escrever uma história completa (<= 350 palavras) que comece com a frase dada.
A última frase (Scene Stealer #16) foi:
He pushed the door open and went in. It was the last thing he expected.
e a minha história foi a seguinte:
He pushed the door open and went in. It was the last thing he expected. He thought the room was simply empty until he realized he was facing Emptiness. And she was together with her old friend Silence.
Emptiness was beautiful, totally different from Nothingness, that the man had met before. Emptiness had an infinite potential, while Nothingness was the end of the road.
Silence created the space that allowed Emptiness to show the infinite ways leading to the future.
The man sat cross-legged on the floor and watched Emptiness for a long time, while Silence cleaned his soul.
When he left the room he knew himself and he knew what he wanted to do. He smiled and went away.
